The Brigg's Up
Benjamin was flagged as a suspect in the murder of his Fiance Daniel Briggs after Lance Carmichael showed up at the crime scene with evidence that Daniel had cheated on Benjamin with an unknown woman.
Benjamin was proven innocent after it was discovered Rachael Birgham had killed Daniel under the order of a man named El Maestro; Rachael turned her gun on herself before any names were given.
A Dream of Paradís
Soon after solving Daniel's murder, Benjamin found the corpse of his long time friend Marla de Paradis in the Sinner's End Dump, he soon discovered from a faked Friendnet that El Maestro was a subordinate of El Rey, meaning that SOMBRA had returned.
Benjamin eventually incarcerated Alvin Carmichael for the murder after discovering that El Maestro was swinging it so all of Benjamin's closest friends and loved ones were killed, shortly after this discovery, a explosion was heard from the local library, the team headed there with the new recruit Thomas Fiatte.
Father Blows Chest
The victim of the explosion was revealed to be Pietro Braun, Benjamin's father, this lead to a large portion of Benjamin's family being questioned and to Ludmila revealing Benjamin's origin as Russian, and his actual name as Benoit.
It was later that Ludmila was the one responsible for Pietro's death, and she was promptly arrested for it, Benjamin then discovered that the true origin of everything El Maestro related was the old Bureau headquarters, he headed there alone but almost immediately called upon the team to meet him there.
Jacking the Spotlight
Benjamin became a suspect yet again in a triple homicide, when Lance Carmichael realised Benjamin was one of a finite few who could have entered the Bureau building in order to commit the murder, Benjamin was further investigated when the bodies of Jack Archer, Carmen Martinez and Marina Romanova were discovered scattered around the area.
Soon after the third body's discovery Benjamin clashed with Lance again, leading to Lance accidentally revealing his affections for Benjamin.
After a long chase all evidence lead to Benjamin being revealed as the killer, despite his initial denial he soon revealed all on the gruesome murder, and it was revealed that he was ordered by a top agent of the CIA to commit the murder as all three were dangerous SOMBRA recruits, Benjamin was granted a pardon due to confirmation of the events occurring.
Death is a Cabaret
A day after the events of Benjamin's arrest occurred, Benjamin visited the local Sinner's End Cabaret where he found the Scarlet Slayer's final victim, Gladys Perrin, another long time friend of Benjamin's, Benjamin initially flagged Aeri Jubili as a viable suspect due to her fan being found in the Victim's handbag, but she was eventually found innocent after Fiona Flanagan was arrested for the mass murder and for being The Scarlet Slayer.
A Masterful Finish
Benjamin became a suspect for the third time after his gun was found at the base of his statue, this time in the murder of his 8 year old son Adam Jameson, Benjamin revealed the controversial fact that he has a son at 15 years of age, with Bureau recruit Michelle Zuria, who at the time of Adam's birth would have been 37 years old.
Benjamin was proven innocent again after Arthur Wright was revealed as El Maestro, and Stephan Darnett as his underling, Arthur escaped custody at the last moment and made a swift getaway, leaving behind a healthy piece of information, that El Rey himself was nearby, closer than they thought.
After the case's closure, Talmadge Baldwin deemed Benjamin as the only member of the team worthy of the title of Chief, and was given the ultimate promotion, the team held a memorial for Adam before heading off to take out El Rey once and for all.
The King's Shadow

Benjamin was interrogated a second time when it was discovered that he was attempting to divorce Michelle, later confirmed to be because he was in fact gay, and wanted to marry Daniel, but Benjamin claimed this wasn't motive enough to convict him.
After El Rey was revealed to be Russell Crane, Benjamin was relieved as this meant SOMBRA was yet again destroyed, but Russell revealed that in fact El Rey's successor (the 4th leader) was already chosen, and he also revealed that the new leader is a member of the Concordia Flying Squad.
