Dr. Kemp lived in a small town in London called Iping.
It was in this small town that The Invisible Man (Griffin) came to and stayed in a small Inn.
After being forced to flee from the Inn because he attacked the owners, Jenny and George Hall, The Invisible Man was injured.
Realizing that he knew Dr. Kemp from Medical School, Griffin sought him out at his office. Kemp took in Griffin, but after reading of the crimes Griffin had commited in the local newspaper, Kemp realized that Griffin was dangerous and possibly homicidal, so he called the police.
After hearing Griffin's story of how all this came to be, the police arrived, and realized that Kemp betrayed him, The Invisible Man struck him down and fled.
Furious with Kemp, The Invisible Man came back later that night to exact revenge. Kemp was able to alert the police that The Invisible Man was inside his house. As the police came looking for him, The Invisible Man shot and killed a Colonel of the police force.
He then attacked Kemp. Dr. Kemp was in the middle of being assaulted when more police officers burst in and were able to strike The Invisible Man a few times. Injured, he ran. However, he was leaving a trial of blood, and the officers were soon able to catch up with him, and after finding him, they beat him to death.
Dr. Kemp tried to intervene, but it was too late. As The Invisible Man died, he reverted to his original state of visibility, and Dr. Kemp went to find something to cover him up with.
