  • Turk is the first Fox River inmate to be killed a main character, who is also a Fox River inmate: Lincoln Burrows.
  • Turk could never know that T-Bag was starting a riot. He wasn't seen with the group and he was seen from the left side. It's highly impossible that he did know where Lincoln was. The only reason he could know where he was, if an inmate told him where Lincoln was. Another reason could be that was just going through the whole building after he was free.
  • Turk is the first character who attempted to kill Lincoln.
