So. Patient Zero? Maybe there's a reason TWD happens in Georgia...

Strange that only family and friends. Are looking for him. No police? CDC is a federal organization. You would think FBI would be looking into this.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

I hate to laugh at someone most likely no longer with us. But I shared this on the 005 facebook page and told everyone to get ready because patient zero has happened. Got some good laughs. but yeah, this is rather strange.

I am thinking laid up with some hookers and blow at the local Budget Inn. Dead is an option as well but normally it is the first one. But there is always the zombie thing.

Just opinion here... I would say the odds of the guy being shacked up with blow and hookers is significantly more likely than the guy being a zombie.

I call dibs on the hardware stores in my AO. There's two of them down the road from me that I know for a fact sell guns and ammo. :clap:

I shall be known in the ZPAW as "Chimpov: Warlord of Hardware Land" :lol:

Mama always asked me; "If your friends jump off a bridge will you jump too?"

I guess so. Sounds like all the cool buildings are taken. So I'll take the police station. There are enough guns and dope in a police station to get me going well down the road as a ZPAW drug lord. I'll need to see chimp to get some barrier material since we are all going goblin. Now... how to get there first?

It is starting to look more dire for the missing guy.
Cunningham left behind his car, cell phone, wallet, and dog.
Few people leave their phone behind these days. The rest is kind of a wash but the phone is a unique item that has changed us.

Ya right? Leaving wallet and car behind IMO makes it less likely its hookers and blow ... leaving his dog behind is unusual ...

Dude was a Harvard educated Dr, rising through the ranks.

1) At 5:00 AM that day he txt his mother, asking "are you awake"
2) He goes to work.
3) He leaves work saying he feels sick ... makes it home, then disappears leaving wallet, phone and car at home

I'm pretty sure its not blow and hookers, you don't txt your mom before you go on a 2 week hooker spree, without your wallet. :)

Other info .... "Cunningham worked in epidemiology, trying to understand health differences across demographics. With more than 16 years of experience in public health, he has co-authored 28 publications on topics ranging from sleep deprivation to pulmonary disease, with a special focus on how health issues affect minorities. He worked on public health emergencies including Superstorm Sandy, the Ebola outbreak and the Zika virus."

/tinfoil hat on
So he's worked on some of the toughest outbreaks in recent years ... and has a done a bunch of work that possibly shows bias in disease results and race.
/tinfoil hat off

It sounds like the guy left suddenly, with little notice and not of his own volition.

That or he stepped outside to see what was going on and never came back inside.

You don't need a wallet for that, just money. Don't need a car either. But a phone? How are you going to get more when you run out? How are you going to get an Uber driver?

Does anyone else hear "Don't Fear the Reaper" playing in the background and what's with all these Ravens?

He sounds like the kind of guy that would be wanted for the "wildfire" team.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Andro ... %28film%29

He would not need a wallet, keys or a phone in such a scenario.

Anything is possible. The NORKs kidnapped Japanese and Koreans for a lot less nefarious reasons.
