Before Day 9, Morgan's superior Steve Navarro colluded with hacker Adrian Cross to sell state secrets to the Chinese government, and planted evidence implicating Morgan in the crime. ("Day 9: 5:00pm-6:00pm") Morgan was indicted, despite protesting his innocence, and was placed in protective custody while awaiting trial. Prosecutors intended to try Morgan for treason, with a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. While in custody in Langley, Virginia, Morgan committed suicide by hanging himself. ("Day 9: 8:00pm-9:00pm") The incident was reported in a Washington Daily Courier article, which was later posted on the Open Cell website. (Open-Cell.org)
As a result of Morgan's outing, his wife Kate was demoted and ordered to return to the United States. Many of her colleagues, particularly her scheduled replacement Erik Ritter, began to doubt her judgment and competence, as her husband had been committing grave treason without her knowledge. ("Day 9: 11:00am-12:00pm")
During Day 9, Jordan Reed found partially deleted references to Morgan's case on an agency hard drive partition and began a Phoenix Retrieval Program to recover it. To hide his duplicity, Navarro dispatched Reed to retrieve a "dead drop" in Camden, then sent a hitman to kill him. ("5:00pm-6:00pm")
Despite this, his name was cleared after Navarro was found to be a traitor and Gavin Leonard discovered what Jordan had been working on before his murder. The revelation of Navarro's treachery enraged Kate as the two had been friends. ("8:00pm-9:00pm")
