    • He said, "Whores offend me."[8]

HistoryEdit

  • In his twenties, he belonged to a paramilitary group known as SafeNet.[9] He was military trained.[10]
  • Rockman that the country has been run by diplomats for too long.[11]

Homicide InformationEdit

  • Rockman drove the senator to Sharon's home and helped him cover up the murder. DeBlass was given a sedative and Rockman cleaned up the mess; he then explained that Sharon had to used as one part of the whole. The senator's penchant for recording his sexual activities gave Rockman the idea to use that as part of the pattern. Since the gun, a Smith and Wesson Model 10, wasn't registered, he decided to leave that behind, also as a part of the pattern.[12]
  • He murdered Lola Starr and Georgie Castle to cover up the senator's murder of Sharon; Rockman enjoyed it. He had sex with them, shot them in the head, in the heart, and in the genitalia. In each case, the murder weapon was left behind, a video was taken of the murders, and a message communicated to the police. Rockman was the one who established the pattern of the murders.[13]
  • He left two sealed discs for Eve (as she has a System 5000 lock, she thinks he might have slid them under the door); one for Sharon's murder, one for Lola Starr's. The videos showed the murders then ended with a graphic overlay that read "ONE OF SIX" (Sharon), then "Two of Six" (Lola). During Sharon's murder, the camera bobbled after the first shot and Eve could hear the murderer's fractured breathing. (There was a ten-minute time lapse in the security discs of her apartment building.)[14] For Lola's murder (she was shot with a SIG 210), the camera remained steady.[15]
  • The weapon used in the Georgie Castle murder was a Ruger P-90, purchased through silent auction at Sotheby's. It was registered to Roarke.[16]
  • The last disc was in Eve's morning mail drop, posted from a midtown slot about an hour after the murder.[17]
  • Rockman broke into Eve's apartment and, when she returned home, confronted her with a Colt .45. After DeBlass committed suicide, he went to Eve's, planning to murder her as the other women were murdered. As there was no way DeBlass could have done it, his reputation would be intact.[18]
  • He planned to rape and murder Dallas and, after he struck her, she engaged her link; it alerted Feeney. When Galahad distracted Rockman, Eve attacked Rockman and they fought. She was shot in the arm (grazed) but she beat him badly.[19]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • He has the capability of undermining security, a knowledge of videos, editing, and antique weapons.[20]
  • His alibi was that he was in East Washington the night Sharon was murdered. The senator and Rockman worked late refining a bill he intends to present next month. They worked until midnight, Rockman stayed in the guest room, and they had breakfast together the next morning at 7:00am.[21]
  • After they traveled to East Washington to update Senator DeBlass, DeBlass had Rockman tail Eve and Feeney from the New Senate Office Building.[22]
  • He also sent a video message to Eve from a public access. It was the department record of Mandy's murder including the audio of the child's screams, and the sound of Eve beating on the door and calling a warning.[23]
  • DeBlass and Rockman both indicate that it might be better to let Sharon rest in peace instead of finding her murderer.[24]
  • Eve noticed that when only Lola and Georgia had been spanked; and that when Sharon looked at the camera, her gaze was lower than with the other two murders.[25]
  • Rockman described DeBlass as a great man.[26]
  • After DeBlass was arrested and released, he stood by him as DeBlass chose a Magnum .457, put the gun in his mouth and "died like a patriot." Rockman told DeBlass it was the only way and DeBlass agreed. Rockman plans to step into DeBlass's 'bloody' shoes.[27]

YANNIEdit

  • Nadine Furst had a disc delivered to her by a source (Derrick Rockman). The disc showed the murders of DeBlass and Starr, and provided copies of the police reports, including autopsies on both victims.[28]
    • Mira stated that Rockman's opinion of women is low. He debases and humiliates them after death to show his disgust and his superiority. Women are not his equals; a prostitute is beneath his contempt.[29] Eve said that it was the shrink's opinion that he didn't have a high opinion of women and that it must burn his ass to have a female leading the investigation.[30]
    • Later, Rockman said it was always a mistake to give a woman authority and mocked Eve as a woman who believed she could think like a man. He said women have their uses, but under it all, they're whores.[31]
      • Based on the low opinion of women demonstrated by Rockman throughout Naked in Death, it is an item of interest that Rockman chose a female reporter (as Nadine and Eve were not friends at this time) through whom to leak information to the media.
