Edmund Burke was Juliet's ex-husband, and was also her boss when she worked at the Miami Central University Medical Research Laboratory‎. He was sexually involved with the new research assistant, Sherry. When Richard Alpert attempted to recruit Juliet to work for Mittelos Bioscience, she refused, citing that the only way she would be able to leave is if Edmund got hit by a bus.

Edmund was aware that Juliet was testing fertility drugs on her sister. Once Juliet announced that she had succeeded, he tried to persuade Juliet to share the results with him. After Juliet refused, he stepped on the street and was hit by a bus. Juliet was asked to fill out informational forms and paperwork after his sudden death.


  • Edmund Burke (Jan. 12th, 1729 - July 9th, 1797) was an Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist and philosopher. He was the author, in 1757, of A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful. In the book, Burke distinguished between "the Beautiful", what is well-formed and aesthetically pleasing, and "the Sublime", what has the power to compel and destroy us. Notably, he was devastated by the death of his son, Richard.
  • The bus that killed Edmund had an Apollo advertisement on the side.
  • In a recent interview Nestor Carbonell revealed that Richard was responsible for the death of Edmund by having the bus run him over.
