FRINGE EVENT: David Robert Jones bioterrorism



SUPERVISING AGENT: Colonel Broyles, Agent Broyles (unauthorized)

FILE ARCHIVED BY: Carl Palicke, Patrick Bresnahan

WITNESSES/CONTACTS: David Robert Jones (suspect), Dr. Samuels

LOCATION: Mohonk Quarry, Hudson River Valley, NY (OH/OT); New York City (OT)

VICTIM(S): 16 ER patients (deceased), FBI agent [redacted] (deceased)


Agent Lee and consultant Peter Bishop crossed Over There without authorization and were detained and interrogated by the DOD. Agent lee provided information about a Shapeshifter infiltration of Fringe Division's Agent Murphy. Secretary Bishop released Agent Lee and Peter Bishop, as their intel led Agent (B)Olivia Dunham and Captain Lee to apprehend suspect David Robert Jones, who was arrested in a warehouse with containment units for more 'shifters. Jones admitted to creating forty-seven soldiers, and he killed one in front of the arresting agents before he requested to speak with Colonel Broyles.
 In interrogation, Jones demanded that Colonel Broyles acquire a hard drive from the desk of decommissioned Shapeshifter Brandon Fayette within twelve minutes, or he would trigger a catastrophic event. peter Bishop provided information about Jones from his own timeline and was given access to the subject, which unnerved Jones. The drive was acquired, and Jones was allowed to leave custody as Fringe agents spiked his tea with an internal tracker that kept him under constant surveillance. Jones diverted agents by giving away money in a public square and then was able to dismantle the tracker and disappear. The drive contained government satellite geological information on amphilicite mines. Used as a power source by Dr. Bell in Peter Bishop's universe, Peter Bishop theorized that Jones created a way to weaponize the one hundred pounds of amphilicite he had acquired.
