James visited another Sanderson Corporation employee on the morning of August 4th 2048, Mrs Miller, to deliver a package to her that was left at the front desk. He checked with her to see if she wanted to switch out her office key lock for a biolock, as she has left her keys in the door once more. She declined and when he returned to the front desk, a group led by Gerald Leighton aka Lucas Vincent entered the Sanderson Building. Lucas drew a gun and pointing it at James asked his name. When James told him his name, Lucas shot and killed him.
