Terry became a murder suspect after Jackie Willies, one of Miss Blue Coasts' judges, was found dead at the spa resort where he worked. He said that Jackie had told him she was fine when he last saw her in the spa's hot tub, only to find out minutes later that someone had stabbed her while he was in another room. He was interrogated again later, when the police found out he had belladonna plants in the spa resort, which he claimed were only serving a decorative purpose. He was one of the main suspects in the case but turned out to be innocent.
The police approached him the next day as well since they'd heard that he would be taking Jackie's place as a judge in the pageant. He said that he was excited about the job and that Alex Jackman had been the one to offer him the opportunity. Of course, he had not said anything about the sponsors' scheme to Terry.
Some weeks after that, Terry was found dead at an abandoned pier. The police investigated the place after some of the zone's neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots. His corpse was left there and the whole place was stained with blood, with the killer even leaving a bloody tire track behind after escaping in their motorbike. Megan Staples found eight bullets inside of his body and was also able to find traces of sunscreen on them.
Relationship with suspects
Amanda Sotomayor: She was a friend of Terry and one of the girls competing for the title of Miss Blue Coasts. Terry had called her twice to talk to her about going to the pier, but Amanda insisted that it was too dangerous and asked him to stay in his apartment. When the police found him dead, he had six missed calls from her.
