|~ J.B. Allen threatening one of his victims.|
J.B. Allen is the main antagonist of the Criminal Minds episode "Foundation". He is a psychopathic pedophile who rapes, tortures, and murders pre-pubescent boys.
He was portrayed by Garret M. Brown, who also portrayed Peter Ridley in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Allen is a real estate developer in Crawford, Texas, who is secretly a pedophile and serial killer who preys on prepubescent boys. His secret life does not prevent him from becoming very successful, however, doing business with the whole town, including the local police. He has a daughter, Samantha, with his late wife, who died when Samantha was five.
He uses his business to cover up his crimes, constructing buildings over the sites of his murders in order to conceal his victims' bodies. He also takes his victims' possessions and gives them to Samantha as gifts, as his real motivation is to to keep them around so he can relive the experience of committing the murders while avoiding the risk of being connected to them.
He kills most of his victims right away, but keeps one of them, Angel Suarez, as his prisoner for eight years, raping and torturing him in a makeshift cell under one of his properties. Angel finally escapes while Allen is transporting him to another site to kill him, as the boy, now a teenager, had grown too old for Allen. Allen immediately kidnaps another boy, Billy Henderson, which gets the attention of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU).
After seeing a TV news story about Angel, who had been rescued by a passing car, Samantha, now an adult, is suddenly troubled by a vague memory of a young boy in pain, and starts to wonder if she knows anything about Angel's abduction. She goes to the local police, but leaves, panicked, immediately after seeing a witness sketch of the suspected kidnapper, which strongly resembles her father.
BAU agents David Rossi and Emily Prentiss question Samantha about the incident at the police station, suspecting that she knows more than she realizes. Prentiss conducts a cognitive interview that helps Samantha recover a repressed memory of her witnessing her father murder a young boy when she was five, and Samantha agrees to wear a wire tap in order to help arrest her father.
While wearing a wire, Samantha visits her father under the pretext of exploring his basement for her old catcher's mitt, in order to search his his basement for incriminating evidence. Unfortunately, she does not find anything. With Prentiss' help, however, she remembers that her father once gave her a puppy that matches the description of one stolen from Angel. With that information, plus that already supplied by Samantha and Angel, the BAU are able to arrest Allen, who is presumably imprisoned for life.
