El Sereno, Los Angeles, California
Not much is known about Mr. Cruz life before the apocalypse except that he has a daughter named Gladys and a wife Joanna and is neighbors with the Clark, Tran, Dawson, Thompson and Ramirez families in the suburban El Sereno community of Los Angeles.
As Travis, Madison, and Nick arrive home, Mr. Cruz is seen on his front lawn helping prepare for his daughter's birthday party.
It is unknown what happened after his wife was attacked and ran back into the house, but when the military shows up, multiple body bags could be seen being carried out and an X is spray-painted on their home.
Since he's not present in the next episode when the National Guards are doing headcounts, it is likely that he was killed by the zombified Peter Dawson.
- Peter Dawson (Alive, Presumed)
A zombified Peter Dawson attacked Joanna Cruz on her front lawn, resulting in fresh blood splattering all over the deflated bouncy castle. She flees into her home with Peter following after her into the house. On the next morning, none of the Cruzs shown up when the National Guards were declaring safety. The National Guard are seen removing multiple body bags from their house with an X spray-painted on the walls, indicating he and his family probably died.
- National Guards (Zombified, Presumed)
It is not known if the Cruz's were completely devoured by Peter Dawson. If not, then the Cruzs could have reanimated shortly, and were eventually dispatched in the morning after by incoming National Guardsmen who took over the community of El Sereno. Of course, there is still a possibility that they are shot alive by the National Guards which notices that they are infected.
