Moe Kitchener was a US Army officer serving as Colonel Murillo's Operations Officer at Pennsylvania Military Academy. In 2009, it was discovered that Moe was complicit in the cover-up of the 2005 murder of Cadet Kate Butler and later even ran Detective Lilly Rush's car off a bridge in an attempt to stop the investigation. After he made bail, Lilly would wage a personal vendetta against him over the following months, until Moe was murdered outside a bar in 2010.
In the fall of 2005, P.M.I. accepted two female applicants for the first time. Moe was assigned the responsibility of instituting the necessary changes to accomodate female cadets. He would later recall that, unlike the other female cadet Courtney Gaines, Kate immediately immersed herself in the life of being a first-year "knob", shaving off her hair herself.
On the night of November 15, Cadet Ryan Stewart came to Moe's office and told Moe he'd hit Kate and she hadn't gotten up. Unwilling to let P.M.I. be rocked by the scandal of a female cadet's murder, Moe ordered Ryan to get a foot locker from storage. Kate's body and all her possesions were then stuffed into the locker, which Moe then drove thirty miles off campus and buried in a Roxborough cemetary in Philadelphia. To everyone else, it appeared Kate had been unable to endure the school's strict standards and run away.
