Is Forensics Specialist Brett Partridge Red John?
Brett Partridge has made two appearances in the series so far, once in the pilot and the second in “The Red Sky in the Morning “.
Patrick Jane and Brett Partridge don’t seem to really like each other, and Jane publicly humiliates him in front of other police officers in the pilot episode. Both episodes were focused on Red John, which could be a coincidence or another clue given to the audience by the writers.
Brett seems to match Rosalind Harker’s physical description of Red John, and the body build and behavior appear to be congruent with what little is seen of Red John in “The Red Sky in the Morning”. The killer was wearing a mask, however, and seemed to be using some kind of voice distortion but the voices of Red John and Brett Partridge seem pretty similar once compared.
Patrick Jane’s humiliating remarks were in regards to his ‘strange’ personality, calling him a ‘ghoul’. Red John seems to understand how to not leave forensic evidence behind, and since that’s the sector where Brett works, it could explain the absence of any real incriminating evidence.
Brett is probably at least Red John’s accomplice, which would be extremely valuable working in CBI forensics, not to mention being able to carry out other tasks such as impersonating him or executing witnesses who have become liabilities, such as agent Bosco’s assistant Rebecca.
In the episode “His Red Right Hand”, a man wearing a tie is seen on the surveillance feed whom the audience is led to believe is Red John (or at least an accomplice). He comes into the CBI to dispose of Rebecca after she executed agent Bosco’s investigation team. Close examination of the video shows certain details, including the use of a jacket that possibly reads “FORENSICS” similar to what Brett has been seen wearing.
