Eddie Trumbull was a Metro-Dade Detective and partner of Bobby Cruz. Young, ambitious, and hungry, both he and Bobby were planning to become Sergeants together when they were assigned to serve a warrant on a fugitive named De La Cruz. They brought in Senior Detectives James "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs as backup, and Tubbs went up to the room where De La Cruz was staying. Trumbull was first through the door, but encountered a bomb set in the booby-trapped room, and while Cruz and Tubbs were injured, Trumbull was fatally wounded and died en route to the hospital.
