Ford Decker is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Matthew Florida from September 9, to December 26, 2007.


Ford was a student at Salem University who was a serial date rapist. When his father Crawford used his influence to protect Ford from being punished for drugging and raping numerous female students, the sisters of Alpha Chi Theta decided to take action. The women, who included three of Ford's victims or attempted victims, drugged him. When the partially incapacitated Ford then pursued Chelsea Brady, whom he had also drugged, up the stairs of the sorority house, he lost consciousness and suffered a fatal fall down the stairs. The sisters buried his body in the basement. Subsequently, Chelsea and Stephanie Johnson dug him back up and hid him in a water heater, which Max Brady removed from the premises.
