|Atlanta Survivors beating up an infected Wayne to allow Rick and Glenn safe passage.|
Very little is known about Wayne except that he was born in 1979 and had a girlfriend/wife/daughter, named Rachel at the time of his death; he was also an organ donor.
When he died while trying to be evacuated from the city, Wayne had 28 dollars in his pocket, as well as a picture from Rachel.
Later, in a desperate attempt to escape the department store, Wayne's corpse was dragged inside the store, gutted and cut up by Rick and Glenn. They used his decomposing guts and insides to wipe and wrap themselves to pose as walkers in order to escape the store.
- Unknown, possibly Infection (Alive)
It is unknown how Wayne died, though the most likely explanation was that he was bitten and succumbed to the infection when Atlanta was overrun.
Glenn met up with Rick and was bringing him back to the group when Wayne was in a back alley. Both T-Dog and Morales came out and beat up both Wayne and another unnamed walker to death. Later, the survivors used Wayne's body by cutting it up and placing his putrid entrails all over themselves to pose as walkers and escape the city.
