Susan Monroe was an agent of the Presidential Protection Detail who was assigned to Vice President Nigel Smeaton prior to his death. She was found murdered in her residence in August 3301, and the Federal Security Service came to suspect her lover, Federal Times reporter Elaine Boyd, was responsible. Boyd was found dead in Wyrd only days later, and various news feeds received data packages that detailed the suspicious deaths of key members of the investigations into the losses of the Highliner Antares and Starship One, including the late Vice President Nigel Smeaton, and identified Monroe, who had worked on Smeaton's protection detail, as Boyd's source.
