Stipes was one of the mercenary task force leaders working for Christopher Henderson during Day 5.
Sometime before Christopher Henderson fled from Van Nuys Airfield, he ordered Stipes and two or three other mercenaries in a helicopter to follow the movements of Secretary of Defense James Heller. If Henderson was unable to call Stipes and his team every fifteen minutes, they had orders to open fire on Heller. This was Henderson's insurance policy to prevent him from being captured by CTU.
After Secretary Heller drove his car into a lake, the helicopter was diverted to meet up with Henderson (Chloe O'Brian speculated that they knew his location via satellite imaging). At 1:45am, Stipes and the other mercenaries in the helicopter arrived to rescue Henderson from a shed where Audrey Raines was guarding him. Henderson ordered Stipes to uncuff him, to find and kill Audrey, and then to return to Henderson to deal with Jack Bauer upon his return. None of them were aware that Curtis Manning and a TAC team had already arrived.
Two of Stipes' men were killed by a TAC team soldier, and Stipes himself was killed by Curtis. Henderson was apprehended and brought to CTU for interrogation.
Background information and notes Edit
- The chopper Stipes flew in had the marking N80KK on its tail boom.
- Stipes was verbally identified (by Henderson) only once, but closed captioning confirms the spelling of his name.
