Crazy Ace was the first hitman who tried to collect the bounty on MacGyver’s head. It was during his first encounter with MacGyver at the Cornwell Institute that Prof. Cornwell was fatally shot by Crazy Ace. He is also the one who explained to MacGyver about the bounty on MacGyver and the rules associated with it. It was presumed that he perished in the destruction of the Cornwell Institute buildings, but he later returned to make another attempt on MacGyver’s life by disguising himself as the pilot of a private flight for MacGyver and Kari. When his second attempt failed he parachuted out of the plane as it was diving out of control leaving MacGyver and Kari to perish in the crash.
