Personal Attache to the French Ambassador in New York
Abraham Cohen, (father)
When Jean Colbert, a spy who uses his position as the Personal Attache to the French Ambassador in New York to sell information to the Russians, learns that Philippe Joubert, a French Internal Security agent, is going to arrest him, he kills Phillipe and tosses his body into the east river. When Phillipe's body is recovered with a single shot to the head but no bullet, the then French Ambassador identifies him as Colbert to avert a potentially embarrassing political situation between the French and Russians.
After this, Colbert disappeared until he was found dead near Strawberry Field twenty years later. It was later discovered that Colbert had in fact sold fake information to the Russians.
Twenty years later, Carrie Walters and Dot find Jean's body at the base of Webster's statue near Strawberry Field with a shot in the head but no bullet, the same M.O. as the body pulled from the New York City East River in 1976 a week after he was reported missing.
The body is a white male sixty-eight inches tall, one-hundred forty-nine pounds in its late forties/early fifties. The head wound was made by a forty-five caliber bullet hole. There was no exit wound and no slug in the body. No I.D. was on the body and there were no distinguishing marks. The body was littered with a dozen roses.
When the body is identified as Jean Colbert, it puts a question mark on exactly who was pulled out of the east river in 1976.
