Events of Criminal Case

Donald was a retired explosives expert, who first appeared when Ramirez saw him near a hot dog stall. When all the evidences pointed towards him, Jones and the player went to arrest him. However, Donald slipped out of Ramirez's sight and escaped. The team then chased Donald to the public park, where he had strapped dynamite onto himself. He screamed that he would never go back to the Grimsborough Pyschiatric Institution for Criminals and detonated the dynamites, killing himself. To this day, the police still do not know why Donald killed Henry. It is possible that Donald killed Henry for testifying against him after he was charged with war crimes and then admitted to an institute for the criminally insane.
