Above the Law[]

Main article: Above the Law (Dead Rising)

Kelly is captured by the corrupt police officer, Jo Slade, and is handcuffed to a table in Lovely Fashion House.

After Jo is defeated and killed, Frank frees Kelly and the three other hostages. He then takes Kelly and the others to the Security Room.

Note: It is possible for Kelly to already be dead when Frank reaches the Lovely Fashion House if Frank took too long to get to the scoop.

It's possible that she escaped Willamette with Otis and the others when the special forces arrived.
