Alex was a deputy employed by the Collinsport Sheriff’s department. He answered directly to Sheriff George Patterson. In June of 1970, Alex and his partner, Mike had been turning off the road leading towards the Collinwood estate when they witnessed the vampire, Carolyn Stoddard appear wraithlike in the middle of the road. Alex and Mike radioed the spectacle to Sheriff Patterson just as their squad car veered off the street, slamming into a tree on the front lawn. Both Alex and Mike suffered minimal injuries.
Later that evening, Sheriff Patterson and the occultist, Professor Timothy Eliot Stokes located Carolyn at the Collinwood stables. Patterson armed all of his deputies with crucifixes and guns loaded with silver bullets. Alex and the other officers hemmed Carolyn in, giving Stokes the opportunity to drive a stake into her heart, ending her undead existence once and for all.
