Chris Rummel was an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In a briefing, Albert Rosenfield updated deputy director Gordon Cole on a case Chris was investigating involving a U.S. congressman suspected of murdering his wife. The congressman was unable to reveal the actual culprit due to national security, but had conveyed to Rummel that a set of objects placed in his garden in Georgetown – including photographs of bikini-clad women and a small boy, a pair of pliers, a machine pistol, and a jar of beans – were the clues to the killer's identity. Cole directed Rummel and his colleagues to begin working on the evidence and dismissed them.
