There's a lot of things we can do for you, Alex, but none of them at gunpoint.
Duncan to Alex Parrish
Duncan Howell was a recurring character who was portrayed by David Alpay. Along with his colleague, Mia, he tried to assist Alex by clearing her name from the list of suspects involved in the Grand Central bombing. He worked as a hacker in the hacktivist group 'The Unknown'. Later in the events of Alex, he was found to have committed suicide, but not before sending an important message to Alex Parrish.


  • He was a hacktivist.
    • Prior to his death, he worked for a dark web organization called "The Unknown".
  • He committed suicide by jumping off a bridge in Alex.
    • Later, it was revealed that he was blackmailed by Liam O'Connor, who disguised his voice and privately communicated with Duncan over the phone. It is assumed that Liam had highlighted evidence of criminal claims of unauthorized access and computer fraud on Duncan's part, causing him to commit suicide, but not before sending a message to Alex prior to his death .
