Kong: Skull Island
William Randa was the senior official in charge of the expedition to Skull Island, having hired also James Conrad to join them as a tracker. In 1954, he was stationed aboard a military ship, which was torn apart by Godzilla, leaving him as the only survivor, and ever since, he had spent the last 30 years as a researcher at Monarch trying to prove that monsters like him exist.
While taking photographs at the grave of Kong's parents, he was devoured by a Skullcrawler and his camera continued to flash within its throat as it stalked the rest of the crew. However, Randa was eventually avenged when Kong defeats and kills the alpha Skullcrawler, Skull Devil, ending the threat of the Skullcrawlers and allowing Kong to become the king of Skull Island.
