Case 3-1: The Professor's Past is the eighth case Frank West receives in Dead Rising.

It is activated by arriving at the security room after Otis calls Frank, and is completed at the end of the subsequent cutscene.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Brad's condition has stabilized after Frank brings back the medicine. Frank tells Jessie that he saved a girl who mentioned Santa Cabeza. Dr. Barnaby overhears them and says that he thought Santa Cabeza was over and done with. Jessie attempts to get him to tell the truth, but he spots Frank and his camera and refuses to speak. Frank says that he will have to get his information from another source.

Case Cutscene[edit | edit source]

Brad's condition has stabilized so Frank asks Jessie some questions about Santa Cabeza. Overhearing their conversation, Dr. Barnaby gets incredibly riled up, but will not talk to Frank. Irritated, Frank decides to look for another source of information.

Jessie: Calm down Dr. Barnaby. We're only following orders. We have to protect you...

Jessie: Professor... If we're going to protect you, we need to know the truth.

Jessie: All of it. Please, talk to us.
