Ryan Fornabaio is an unseen character that was mentioned in an unnamed LA newspaper.
At some point prior to the apocalypse, David joined the LAPD and was a patrol officer.
At the very beginning of the apocalypse, Ryan Fornabaio responds to a domestic disturbance alongside his partner David Moran. They arrive at the Culver City residence of Patrick Sutherland. They found him in an alleyway, eating a neighbor's cat. Upon approaching the apparently infected man, they order him to stand down but he refused, which resulted in the officers in shooting and killing Mr. Sutherland.
As the city of Los Angeles quickly fell to the undead, Ryan's fate remains unclear. It is unknown whether he was able to survive the outbreak or was killed and/or turned into a zombie.
- It is unknown why Ryan and his partner (as officers of the LAPD) responded to a domestic disturbance call in Culver City as Culver City has a police department of its own.
