William Easton's Abduction

William recognizes the guard

The security guard was a man working for the Umbrella Health insurance company to maintain the safety of its workers. One night, during his patrol in one of the upper floors of the Umbrella Health Headquarters, he was surprised by a sudden blackout. To see that everything was all right, he took his gun and his flashlight and entered the office of William Easton, senior vice president of Umbrella's department for membership and claims. Unfortunately, William, who had still been in his office, mistook him for an invader when he saw his silhouette behind a milk glass window. Alerted by this, he grabbed a gun from the drawer of his desk and quickly went into hiding. When the guard entered, William left his hiding spot and told him not to move. However, the man turned around and was subsequently shot by William. While he tried to help him, the guard attempted to warn him of Detective Mark Hoffman, successor of the late John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer, who was approaching from behind while covering his face with a sinister pig mask. After subduing him, Hoffman took William to the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute, where he had prepared a brutal and vicious game for him. (Saw VI)


Not much can be said about the Security Guard's personality due to his short screen time.


  • The security guard's fate after having been shot by William was never confirmed.
  • The fact that the guard apologized to William after having been shot and his attempts to warn him of Hoffman suggest that Hoffman might have forced him to assist him in William's abduction by distracting him.
