He penned a book called "Cold Fusion" and had a book signing, where Max let him have it. Max didn't think the Dean's theories were true in his book. This piques the Dean's interest and he tries to talk with Max about it but Max looks to the Dean with disdain. Trent is an abuser. He was married to Nicole Walker and still is. This means Nicole's marriage to Victor is a sham! Trent also has a daughter, Melanie, who he has used in the past to get what he wants. Not well liked, no sooner does he come to town, but is murdered! Knifed in the back.... will update with the murderer once we know who it is!

You've got to pay the price, Melanie," he says and Melanie cries that she doesn't remember killing him. He calls her a bad seed and she runs out of her room, yelling, "No, Dad, get out of here. I didn't do it!" She runs straight into Philip's arms. He tells her that Stephanie snitched on her, and Melanie tells him to get out. He asks her to explain why she had Trent's wallet, and when she doesn't say, he threatens the police. She denies killing Trent and tells him to get out.
