Braxton is one of the local residents of Bear Valley, New York City. He appeared in a local bar where he started a fight with Clay over the death of the Richardson boy's body which was found a few episodes earlier. He suddenly disappears and his truck [which has blood all over the front street] is found on the Stonehaven property line. everyone who knows him last heard that he was heading out to confront clay. Elena Michaels then investigates by smelling the scent of his dead body and trying to cover it up so nobody else learns about what's really happening.
