Murders Committed[edit | edit source]

  • Nathaniel Lahey, Sr.: As revealed by Xavier himself, Governor Lynne Birkhead had Xavier set up the murder of Nathaniel Lahey Sr. in order to prove that Annalise's Supreme Court win would put dangerous felons back on the street. Xavier gave the order to C.O.s Paula Gladden and Jim Wagner to assassinate Nate and make it look like it was a justified kill. During transport to a psychiatric facility, Nate was shot in the head. However, the official story is that Nate attacked Paula when she tried to take his letter off of him before transport. Nate became agitated and stabbed Paula in the leg with a pencil which forced C.O. Wagner to shoot Nate in the head. The death was ruled a justifiable death.
