Rusty Tomasky was a youth murdered by Windom Earle.
Rusty listened to Windom Earle's story about a good place called the White Lodge and an evil place called the Black Lodge. However, he became restless, wanting the beer and party that he had been promised. Earle dismissed his worries by asking for his patience.
Later, Earle called for a celebration. However, Rusty was stuck inside of a chess pawn structure, so he drank beer poured directly into his mouth by Leo Johnson. He asked how he would get out of the pawn, to which Earle responded that he would not, then got out a crossbow. He had a reluctant Leo fetch him an arrow and Earle then fired the arrow into Rusty, killing him.
Later in the evening, Rusty's body was found by the Twin Peaks Sheriff's Department in a gazebo at the park.
