Dead Rising Wiki

Case 0-1: Find Katey Zombrex is the first case in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.

Between Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene flees Las Vegas with his daughter Katey. In need of fuel and looking to stock up on supplies, Chuck and Katey stop at the small desert town of Still Creek. Shortly after their arrival a containment zone is breached and the undead begin to shuffle into town. Then someone steals Chuck’s truck.

With Katey needing a shot of Zombrex very soon, Chuck searches Still Creek for the drug, and a way out of town. He leaves Katey in the gas station to find Zombrex. After traveling through the small town, Chuck discovers a road block with an overturned ambulance which may have Zombrex inside.[1][2]
