It also turns out Jerry was the unknown figure who shot Flynn's father, after Carsen refused to tell Jerry about the mines.
Jerry met Flynn's father in 1967. The two became good friends and he was with him when he met Maggie Carsen and later married her. He learned that he knew the location of Solomons mines and demanded he told him about it. When Flynn's father refused he shot and killed him.
