In 2004, Pete Sheridan stole heroin from the police lock-up, and used Claire to fence it. Claire had been arrested twice for dealing heroin, and Pete Sheridan knew her from when he worked in Narcotics. When Claire threatened to turn him in he killed her and hid her body at Ashland Supplies at 2911 Ashland Street. Claire was 28 years old when she was killed.
Claire returns a year later as a type of ghost, a death omen, to warn other people Pete is going to kill. She tries to communicate and generates the letters "DANASHULPS" through printers, and computers. Sam and Dean are able to realize that "DANASHULPS" is an anagram of Ashland Sup(plies), where she was killed.
Detective Ballard receives a warning from Claire during her interrogation of the Winchesters and eventually learns what Detective Sheridan did to Claire. When Sheridan is about to execute Dean Winchester, Ballard arrives and tries to stop him. In the ensuing fight Claire appears before Sheridan smiling right before Ballard retrieves her gun and kills him, allowing Claire to be laid to rest.
