Mr. Reed was already being investigate for insurance fraud when there was an alleged breaking at his home. The Natick Police Department recovered a tire iron (no fingerprints), a bag of shattered glass from the house's exterior, and Mr. Reed's fingerprints from inside his safe at the scene. The fingerprints matched those of his earlier fraud case, this combined with the glass being broken from inside the home led investigators to the conclusion that he was responsible for both. To compound the evidence against Mr. Reed seven insurance claims made by him were faxed by his insurance providers to the Natick PD. They were to review the insurance evidence on 10/23/77.
Fr. Reed is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
