Stafford was a security guard who worked at the Westin Hills Psychiatric Hospital in Westin Hills, Ohio. In addition to routine patrols, Stafford was also tasked with monitoring the hospital's surveillance systems and reader card systems.
One night, he noticed someone accessing an entrance to the hospital using a stolen I.D. badge. He left the security command center to investigate.
While patrolling a corridor, Stafford heard a loud banging coming from another room and drew his sidearm. As he approached the steel door, he could tell that something from the other side was trying to tear the door off its hinges.
He pulled out his gun then masked serial killer Jason Voorhees pushed the door off its hinges onto Stafford, crushing him to death.
