In Shadow of the North Plaza David is found hiding in an unfinished store in North Plaza. He is terrified when Frank finds him, and asks if he is one of the good guys. He reveals that he was injured when a Steven Chapman attacked him while he was trying to get food from the supermarket, claiming David was shoplifting. Frank offers to help him back to the Security Room by offering his shoulder.
In the beta version of Dead Rising, David is named David Garrison, the same last name as Brad Garrison.
David is wearing a wedding band, suggesting that he is married. If he is indeed married, then it is unknown what happened to his wife. Taking a picture of this wedding band will give Frank a Drama genre bonus.
