Federal Agent Chris Stamp became a janitor at Enchantment Cosmetics to
get closer to Erica Kane. The extreme measure was so that Chris could
determine if Enchantment had become a front for drugs. International drug
lord Proteus had moved operations to Pine Valley. Chris was determined
to determine Proteus’ identity. He enlisted the help of the local
authorities, and fellow spy, the recently resurrected Anna Devane.
Erica did not understand why Chris kept on popping up in random places.
Chris wanted to keep Erica in the dark until he was sure that Enchantment
was be used as a front. He found a shipment mixed in with some of Erica’s
products. To protect Erica, he took a job as her security guard.
Chris met Ryan Lavery and knew it was a face he had seen before. Chris
admitted herwas the Federal Agent who killed Ryan’s father, Patrick
Curry, during a drug bust. What Chris did not want Ryan to know was that
he had also loved Ryan’s mother, Gail Lavery. Patrick had taken
Gail away form him, and killed his fiancé Linda too.
Erica was taken into custody for the murder of Frankie Stone. Chris volunteered
to be her legal counsel. Chris admitted that he had a soft spot in his
heart for Erica. The case pitted Chris against Erica’s ex-lover,
District Attorney Jackson Montgomery. When it looked like Chris was going
to win the case, Erica fired him. Chris did not know that Erica was taking
the fall for murder to protect her daughter, Bianca Montgomery.
Erica was depressed that she could not go to the Crystall Ball because
she was on house arrest. Chris surprised her with an intimate party of
their own at the Linden House.
Chris admitted to Ryan that he was his real father. They began to forge
a bond. Ryan’s new girlfriend, Erica’s daughter Kendall Hart,
compromised it. Kendall came to town with the sole purpose of incriminating
Erica at the murder trial. Ryan would leave town after catching Kendall
in a precarious position with Aidan Devane. Chris stayed in close contact
with his newfound son.
Chris’ presence in Erica’s life put everyone’s life
at risk. Trey Shepherd burned down the Linden House after stealing Chris’
Proteus files. Trey implicated Kendall as the arsonist.
Chris was paralyzed after he stepped in the way of a bullet meant for
Mateo Santos. Erica was frustrated with Chris’ depression. She threatened
to leave him if he did not recover. Chris surprised her by getting on
his feat and walking to her. Chris and Erica were engaged to marry.
Chris became weary of Erica’s strange behavior. He hired an old
associate, Evan Flanders, to keep an eye on her. Flanders revealed that
Erica had a one-night stand with Jackson. Chris was enraged and broke
up with Erica. Flanders thought Chris wanted to retaliate, so he shot
Chris confronted Flanders over what he had done. Flanders wanted to skip
town, but Chris was determined to turn him in. Flanders shot Chris. Maddie
Grey witnessed the shooting. Chris took whatever strength he had left
to carry Maddie to safety, knowing Flanders would want to eliminate any
witnesses. As he ran away, Flanders continued shooting. After alluding
Flanders, Chris collapsed dead at the grounds behind Wildwind.
