Before Day 1 Edit
Stram had a considerable criminal record as of Day 1. He had three juvenile arrests in Los Angeles, for: assault, possession of an unlicensed firearm, and criminal sales of narcotics (crystal methamphetamine and Rohypnol). He served two years in a juvenile detention facility. This was followed by two adult arrests in Los Angeles County for attempted sexual assault; charges were dismissed. One arrest for homicide was followed by an acquittal. Two years before the California primary, charges against Eli Stram were dropped in one pending federal narcotics case. The DEA case officer responsible for his prosecution was former agent Kevin Carroll; both men later worked for Ira Gaines. (Findings at CTU)
Day 1 Edit
Eli guarded the hostages Teri Bauer and her daughter Kim when they were taken to the Gaines compound. At one point, he decided to rape Kim. Teri offered herself instead, saying she "won't fight." Eli agreed and raped her instead. While she was with him, Teri obtained his cell phone, which she used to call for help.
When Eli was sent to kill Teri and Kim, Teri pulled out a gun given to her by Rick Allen, but it failed to fire. As Eli tried to stab Kim, Teri shot him twice with his own gun, killing him.
