- —David, taunting the fence walkers[src]
Almost nothing is known about David's life before or as the outbreak began, except that he lived in or near Decatur, Georgia, as he was stated by Karen to have been from a group of people in that city who were brought to the prison.
David is seen in the cell with Karen while ensuring the children's safety from the walkers. It is mentioned by Karen that David is sick like she is. This causes the council to move both her and David over to a separate cell block as a precaution against them infecting any other prison survivors with the virus or dying and reanimating. Later on when Tyreese Williams is bringing flowers for his girlfriend Karen, he finds David burned alongside her in a small courtyard.
David's corpse is seen again as Rick Grimes discovers him and Karen's corpse after Tyreese mentioned them. Tyreese also mentioned him later when he dug up two graves for him and Karen.
In a flashback, David's body is seen being burned along with Karen's body by Carol as she attempts to stop the spread of the flu.
- Flu (Indirectly Caused)
After displaying symptoms of the unknown illness, David is separated from the healthy people in the prison.
Later, in an effort to prevent the infection from spreading within the prison, David is murdered and then burned by Carol.
This list shows the victims David has killed:
- "Consumed" (Flashback, Corpse)
- David was not mentioned in the "In Memoriam" segment of the Talking Dead.
