"This is what everyone becomes when you strip it all away and you leave them with nothing!"

Randy North is the biological father of Austin and Patty North. He appeared in the season nine finale and the season ten premiere of CSI: Miami.

Season Nine[]


Randy North was contacted by former cellmate, Jack Toller, who threatened Randy into helping him escape from the cops or he would kill his kids. Randy agreed to help, but was caught by the police and now was in risk of losing his children.

Since he tried to help the police catch Jack, Natalia promised him that she would testify to help save his kids from being taken away from him. Despite their best efforts, the judge ruled otherwise and Austin and Patty were taken away and were separated, which drove Randy over the edge.

Randy called Natalia and tricked her into thinking Jack was at the pier, and once she and Horatio Caine had arrived Randy ambushed them. He shot Horatio in the lower abdomen, then knocked out Natalia before shoving her into the trunk of a car, rolling it off the pier and into the water in revenge for losing his children.

Season Ten[]


In the beginning of season 10, he was later caught by Horatio after his son, Austin, tricked him into meeting him near the beach. He tried to redeem himself by helping them catch Jack, but he managed to escape before the police could get to him, and Randy was incarcerated. Eventually, Austin and Patty would end up being adopted by Calleigh Duquesne.
