Detective Tom R. Gordon was the partner of Detective John Williams and an accomplice to Frank Booth.


One day, Gordon went to Dorothy Vallens' apartment, where an alleged pest control worker was spraying.

Days after a drug bust for Frank, Gordon saw the pest control worker at the police station, passing by his office.

The following Friday, Gordon went to the Williams home to get the Detective, again spotting the pest control worker.

After suffering from a sort of crude lobotomy, Gordon stood in Dorothy's apartment near a dead Don Vallens, bleeding until Frank shot him dead.
