History: (Ghost Rider VI#8 (fb) - BTS) - When Cameron's father, police officer Pete Fillardi, died, Pete's partner Harry O'Connor swore to look after Cameron. As a teenager, Cameron got into trouble when he tried to force himself on a girl named Monica Brezzi, ultimately prompting Monica and her family to move away. It was later revealed that Monica wasn't so innocent herself.

(Ghost Rider VI#8) - Nearly a year later, after taking Emily Stouffer out on a date, Cameron was thanked for the fun time, prompting Cameron to comment that they could have a lot more fun. Emily asked what Cameron meant, only to then notice that Cameron had drove past the turn to her house. Cameron then menacingly told Emily that she wasn't going home yet and claimed that he wanted to show her something. Emily weakly tried to tell Cameron that she needed to get home but Cameron replied that he was going to tell everyone at school that they had sex anyway and attempted to convince Emily to comply as he got out of his car. Emily told Cameron no and locked herself inside Cameron's car, prompting Cameron to get angry and attempt to break into his own car to get to Emily. Cameron was then surprised by an unseen assailant and Emily yelled that Cameron was scaring her. She then announced that she just wanted to go home and that she was calling her father. Emily then asked if Cameron had heard her, only to be met with a splatter of blood across the car windshield. Unsure of what was going on, Emily opened the door to see if Cameron was ok and found his decapitated corpse laying on the ground outside the car. Investigating Cameron's death, Capt. Harry O'Connor (now the Sleepy Hollow, Illinois sheriff) spoke with Cameron's mother and had a conversation that was very hard on Cameron's mother. Later, Capt. O'Connor visited Emily in the hospital and explained to her about Cameron's history of forcing himself on girls. He further told Emily that it was perfectly ok to defend herself if Cameron had forced himself on her. Emily explained that Cameron was not killed in self-defense and Harry asked her to explain what exactly had happened. Emily told Harry that she had only seen a flash of light and a strange sound but didn't know anything else about how Cameron was killed. As he left the hospital, Harry O'Connor phoned District Attorney Ken Greer and informed him of what Emily had said, insisting that they now leave Emily alone. Concerned, Greer asked Harry if he was covering for Cameron but Harry replied that, as long as Ken had known him, he would pretend Ken had not said that.

(Ghost Rider VI#11 (fb) - BTS) - Cameron Fillardi was resurrected by Lucifer (possessing the body of the deceased Jack O'Lantern/Steve Levins) as part of Lucifer's undead army. Upon his resurrection, his head was sewn back onto his body.

(Ghost Rider VI#11) - The zombie Cameron was sent against Capt. Harry O'Connor and the demonic hero Ghost Rider when they set a trap to destroy Jack O'Lantern. While Ghost Rider confronted Jack O'Lantern outside, Harry was shocked to see the zombie Cameron inside the house that he had holed up in. Taking advantage of Harry's shock, Cameron attacked O'Connor, who knocked Cameron up against a refrigerator. Attempting to convince himself that the zombie was not truly Cameron but rather merely a piece of dead meat, Harry brandished a cooking fork and warned Cameron that he didn't want to stab him. Forced to stab Cameron in the back, Harry was easily swatted aside when Cameron was unaffected by the stab wound. Cameron then went for Harry's throat but Harry managed to knock Cameron back. Realizing that Cameron was never truly a good kid, Harry announced that if Cameron had not gotten himself killed, he likely would have ended up killing someone himself. Harry then kicked Cameron back against the refrigerator, which fell over, crushing the zombie Cameron underneath. Despite knowing how Cameron truly was, Harry apologized before Jack O'Lantern confronted him. Harry managed to stall Jack O'Lantern long enough for Ghost Rider to return and spring the trap for Jack O'Lantern, destroying the house in a massive explosion and presumably destroying Cameron's corpse.
