Twin Peaks Wiki

Colonel Calvin Reilly was a United States Air Force officer assigned to investigate the disappearance of Major Garland Briggs.


The woods where the messages came from

Sheriff Harry S. Truman introduced Reilly to FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, who was with Major Briggs at the time of his disappearance. He asked about wildlife in the area, specifically owls, which Cooper confirmed to have heard. Cooper confirmed to Reilly that he knew about messages found in deep space containing his name and wished to be filled in on the details. The colonel said the messages may have been sent from the woods near Cachuma Lake, but when Cooper asked if this may be related to a White Lodge, Reilly stated that this information was classified. However, he did say that the disappearance of Briggs went beyond national security.[1]
