Pembry

Officer Jim Pembry (played by Alex Coleman) is a minor character from The Silence of the Lambs. When Hannibal Lecter was transferred to Memphis as part of an FBI deal with him for assisting with the Buffalo Bill case, Pembry was assigned to guard Lecter's cell along with Officer Boyle.

Death

When Boyle delivered Dr. Lecter's dinner to his cell, Lecter was handcuffed to the bars. However, the doctor had previously stolen a pen from Frederick Chilton and broken off the pocket clip to use as a makeshift lockpick. While Boyle set the meal down on the table, Lecter used the clip to unlock his cuffs and then assaulted Boyle and Pembry. Pembry was handcuffed to the bars and Lecter savagely bit off a chunk of his face before spraying mace in his eyes and then beating the officer's head against the bars. After killing Pembry, Lecter then used a razor to cut off the officer's face, wearing it as a mask. Disguised as Pembry, Lecter walked out of the station and fled.
