Twin Peaks Wiki

Davis was a United States Air Force colonel.


Twenty-five years after the death of Major Garland Briggs, Davis was informed by Lieutenant Cynthia Knox that there was a match made to Briggs' fingerprints in Buckhorn, South Dakota; the sixteenth match since the Major's death. Although skeptical due to the previous fifteen matches, Davis informed Knox that if the match was accurate, that they must report it to the FBI.[1]

From South Dakota, Knox reported to Davis that the prints came from Briggs' body, but the head was missing and the body was the wrong age. Nevertheless, Davis made the call to the FBI.[2] He reached Agent Tammy Preston, who put Deputy Director Gordon Cole on the line. After the hard-of-hearing Cole briefly misheard the word "Buckhorn," Davis informed him about the situation.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

His name may be a reference to Don S. Davis, who played Major Garland Briggs in the original series.

Davis wears US pins on his lapels, which is appropriate for a USAF officer.
