When Kyle learned that Bradley was betraying the police department to Nile, he confronted Bradley at the docks and shot him. Right after that, Kyle quit the police force and moved to Los Angeles. There the ex-detective was employed as a salesman by the company Red Crown. However, Kyle was sure that Bradley survived, and so he didn't stop to track down his former partner.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Kyle wears a "Red Crown" jacket, along with a white t-shirt and a black tie. Kyle has brown hair and a beard. Players can be easily fooled that he has blonde hair because in gameplay sections, Kyle looks like he has bright hair. They did fix the confusion in the sequel, Last Window: Secret of Cape West. He has brown hair during gameplay sections this time.


Kyle is often very sarcastic and impatient when it comes to listening to people's problems. He doesn't really like kids very much. He also has a destructive behavior.


  • He likes Jazz music and during his youth he dreamed of becoming a sax player, before an accident made it impossible.
  • He likes his coffee black, with two pieces of sugar.
  • He has a soft spot.
  • Unlike the other people in Hotel Dusk that Kyle had problems with, Mila is the one he likes the most out of all the them. It makes sense cause she's the silent type for the majority of the game and he doesn't like very talkative people like Martin Summer.
