Following which he locks Benji in the mezzanine floor and tortures him for days. Eventually, Benji dies out of a peanut oil reaction which Joe had mixed in his drink.

Well, apparently Joe had kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, Candace, tied her up and choked her to death. He later drives his car out of the woods to recreate a replica of the romantic date they had before. He even got a picnic basket and explained to her that he had to tie her up so that they could talk in peace. However, if that wasn’t already cringe-worthy, he knocks her out when she attempts to get away and buries her alive, hoping she is dead.
#3 Joe murdered Jasper
Well, Joe finds himself in trouble again after taking Will’s (a hacker who deals with unsavoury clients as part of his job and whose identity Joe briefly reveals) identity because a man named Jasper is looking for the original Will who owes him $50,000. While trying to figure out how to pay him back, he calls Jasper to his storage unit and kills him.
Only killing is not enough for Joe, he ends up cutting his body in parts in a very brutal manner that the viewers were unfortunately privy to. That one scene where Joe uses his kitchen to grind Jasper’s body part is not one we’re soon to forget.
#4 Kidnapping Will to steal his identity
At the beginning of You Season 2, Joe leaves New York because his ex-girlfriend, Candace has found out who he really is. He changes his name into Will and now lives a brand new life in Los Angeles.

#5 Killed Peach (Beck’s best friend)
Joe did not really like Beck’s best friend, Peach as she quickly realizes that there is something off about Joe. When some of Beck’s personal belongings begin to disappear, Peach finds out that Joe is the culprit.

Suddenly, Beck realises that peach (Beck’s best friend) was right about Joe.
#7 When Joe locked Beck in the basement
That was such a scary moment in the Netflix series You when Joe returns and finds Beck has unearthed all his secrets. Sooner he realises that he has no other option left but to lock her in the basement. On top of it all, he is afraid of losing her so he calmly tries to give an explanation to all his actions.
And at that moment Beck tries to defend her life by smartly stabbing Joe with a typewriter key.
