Death and Replacement
Prior to the interrogation, Broussard was murdered by Helmut Zemo, the true perpetrator of the attack Barnes was accused of. Zemo impersonated him and used trigger words to send Barnes on a murderous rampage throughout the facility in which he was being held. This incident eventually led to the Clash of the Avengers. Only after Barnes and Captain America were declared fugitives was Broussard's body discovered; Zemo had directed room service to the hotel room he had been staying in with the intention of causing the discovery.
