Barnaby becomes a zombie[]

Isabela's awake, and argues with Brad's interrogation. She insists that there was no drug trade in Santa Cabeza, but that it was an American governmental cover-up of experiments gone horribly wrong. Dr. Barnaby was the head of a research facility in the town that created an insect that turned living creatures into zombies.

Barnaby has started to turn into one of the undead himself, attacking Jessie. Before he is fully zombified, Frank manages to get some answers out of the old man: the Santa Cabeza facility was an attempt to create cheaper breeding methods for cattle, to meet the rising demand for meat in America.

Barnaby's confession

Brad: What is your name?

Isabela: Isabela... Isabela Keyes.

Brad: Well, Isabela... This is an emergency so we'll skip with the formalities and cut to the chase.

Brad: Consider this an official interrogation. Tell me everything that you know.

Isabela: Fine. I'll explain why all of this is your fault. There was no drug trade in Santa Cabeza. Just an American research facility. They were doing research on some sort of parasitic insect. Like a wasp. A wasp that turns living things into zombies. If you don't believe me, just ask the man who was in charge of that research.

Isabela: The head of the Santa Cabeza Livestock Research Facility, Dr. Barnaby!

A noise comes from the storage room

Brad: Huh?

Dr. Barnaby slams through the doorway while holding Jessie

Brad: Jessie!

Dr. Barnaby stares at Isabela

Isabela: Its started! He's turning!

Dr. Barnaby gets on top of Jessie as Brad readies his gun

Frank: Hey!

Frank runs up to Dr. Barnaby and kicks him off of Jessie

Frank: Oh no you don't!

Dr. Barnaby falls against a cabinet then slides down the cabinet to the floor. Everybody stares at him as he lies motionless then Dr. Barnaby raises up and starts to yell and falls back to the floor as Frank approaches him.

Dr. Barnaby: I... I'm a... zombie? (coughs)

Frank leans down next to him

Frank: Tell me the truth doc... Were you conducting experiments with zombies?

Dead rising case 6-1 santa cabaza (12)

Dr. Barnaby: Zombies? Yes... We were... conducting... experiments to... reduce the costs of breeding... We... accidentally... made zombie livestock. (coughs)

Frank: So the government's now in the zombie making business... The whole story about the drug trade was a cover-up?

Dr. Barnaby: What do you know!? We were trying to mass produce cattle. Do you... have any... idea... how much meat... Americans consume... in a single day? That research... was absolutely necessaryyyyyyy! I... haven't... done... anything... wrong...

Barnaby falls to the floor and spasms then dies.

Frank zooms into his body with a camera then turns to Isabela

Isabela: One day... in my village... the people turned into zombies... Those damn wasps... They escaped from the lab. It wasn't long before they got to work... The zombies spread... The army was called in... They killed everyone...

A sound is heard behind Frank. Brad points his gun behind Frank

Brad: Move.

Dr. Barnaby has turned into a zombie and is now coming toward Frank but Brad shoots him in the head

Brad: So, the terrorism is a retaliation for a cruel government cover-up? Sounds plausible... Or it could be some serious bullshit. In either case, we have to get out of here alive if we want to find out for sure.

Brad checks on Jessie

Isabela: We have to check if she's been bitten. Let me take a look. I'm a medical technician. I could be useful if you let me do my job. I know I have no right to ask, but please, let me help. If you don't get out of here, the truth dies with you.

Brad and Frank exchange looks as Brad thinks over Isabela's offer of help

Brad: Alright. If allowing you to atone for you and your brother's schemes makes things go more smoothly for us... I'm all for it.

Isabela examines Jessie[1]
