Duval Price appears in The Signs in the Silence. He was killed by Samantha Winslow in self defense. He was hired by his friend Mike Shenfield to capture the fleeing Samantha and hold her captive until he could arrive and take her home. Mike feared Samantha reporting his abuse of her. Samantha, not wanting to be beaten again, struggled with Price and accidentally killed him with a knife while trying to keep him off of her. As his death was self-defense, Samantha was cleared of all charges while Mike and his wife Denise were arrested for Samantha's kidnapping and abuse. Thanks to the efforts of Doctor Temperance Brennan, Samantha's parents were then found and she was reunited with them.
