Dick Tracy Wiki

The man known as "Buckles" was an underworld figure and informant to the police. He prided himself on being well-dressed.

Buckles was murdered by his criminal associates at some point prior to October of 1971. His remains were discovered in the flooded rock quarry in Dick Tracy's city, near those of narcotics agent Jay Waljo.

Sam Catchem recognized a distinctive pair of shoes that Buckles wore, which provided the clue that was used to confirm his identity.


  • While the flooded quarry where his remains were found was apparently a preferred dumping place for the criminals known as The Dope Fiends, it was not confirmed if they had been associates of Buckles.
