Sayid was approached by Ben in Santo Domingo after retiring as Ben's personal assassin. Ben informed Sayid of a man waiting outside of Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute who was spying on Hurley. Sayid rejects Ben's suggestion to kill the man at first, but later decides to look into it. ("He's Our You")
While sitting in his car outside of Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, the man is approached by Sayid, who shoots and kills him. Sayid later tells Hurley that the man had been outside watching the Institute for several days. ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 2")
The man's death is later blamed on Hurley. ("Because You Left")
Hurley then makes a false confession in order to protect Sayid's involvement in the murder and to escape from Ben. ("The Lie")
