Nathan Johnson was assigned at one point to act as a bodyguard to Kyle.
Kyle was kidnapped by Tony Angelo and Frank Blackstone in order to lure his father Andy Shephard out of hiding after he began working against Tony's operations. Kyle was bound and gagged in the backseat of a car and driven to a road to await Andy. Andy attempted to save his son, but Tony was quick and shot him in between the head with a gun, killing him. Despite this Tony turned Kyle loose and he and Frank left the scene.
- A planned project featuring the return of Andy Shephard would see Kyle reappearing.
