Paul Kimball was a corrupt lieutenant with the LVPD in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He was one of several cops working for Jeffrey McKeen and appeared in the Season Twelve finale and the Season Thirteen premiere.


Not much is revealed about Kimball other than that he is divorced and has children whom he apparently lost custody of in the process.

Season Twelve[]


It is revealed that Kimball is on McKen's payroll when it is revealed that he is responsible for the three murders in which Jack Gilmore was in the framework of where Kimball was tying up loose ends for McKeen.

He later kidnaps DB Russell's granddaughter, Kaitlyn, at McKeen's request in revenge for the death of McKeen's son, David Winnock.

Season Thirteen[]

Karma to Burn[]

In the second part, Kimball, still holding Kaitlyn captive, is forced on the run when he is identified as one of the kidnappers. He goes to a safehouse for McKeen's police associates and kills the ones there. As he is held at gunpoint by Brass and the other, he is unwilling to "rat" on anyone and tries to kill himself, but is shot and wounded by Brass and arrested. He committed three more murders of ex-cops also working for McKeen, tying up his own loose ends before Brass arrived.

However, he would later testify against other corrupt police officers to have his sentence reduced.
