Gates was acting as the serial killer known as 3XK, AKA Jerry Tyson, who gave Gates all the info he needed to pretend to be him, thus allowing Tyson to be released from prison early as part of a deal to provide the investigating team with evidence (Tyson also provided Gates with money to pay for vital surgery required by Gates's foster brother).
