Mayor of Crawford - Hung?

posted by SINNUR on - last edited - Viewed by 384 users

I was wondering if anyone else noticed that the walker that had been hung]from the bell (who grabbed Ben) was the Mayor of Crawford?

Speculation as to how/why he died? ;)

  • it was the mayor. He was hung by the survivors of crawford for some reason(guessing cause he failed the town or caused the outbreak that affected the town).

  • I would imagine that he commited suicide as walkers destroyed his safe zone, and hung himself from the bell.

  • I'm guessing he hung himself.

    You know though Crawford did have a point with the ones who had a medical condition.
    Major Drain on medicine. Not so much with the way it was handled

    Not only that, there's the fact that people with certain medical conditions are more likely to die off and thus reanimate. Somebody has a particularly bad asthma attack or something? That's a potential walker.

    It also leads me to believe that the inhabitants of Crawford strung up the "good" Mayor when things went down the crapper; they apparently knew that people reanimated upon death, and I kinda doubt the Mayor would put himself in that position.

  • I bet the remaining population hung the mayor from the bell so they would draw the zombies to the school, buying them time to escape? seems a crawfordy thing to do, a riled up zombie swinging from a bell tower seems a good way to keep walkings off your back as you leave, theres a theory, although unlikely.

  • don't know, maybe you should ask his wife.

  • First of all, when they talk about Crawford, they're not really talking about Crawford the city, which is a long ways away from Savannah. They're talking about an area of Savannah itself. So it didn't ever have a "good" mayor. It was just a section of Savannah that was taken over by Oberman and the people who followed him.

    But yes, I think that zombie is Oberman and I think he hung himself. I imagine that when the town got overrun, Oberman and whoever else survived made a last stand in the school, and then eventually the armory (which is why there isn't any ammunition left). Then, when it was clear that there was no way they could win, after everyone else got killed or turned, Oberman went to the top and hung himself.

    Boom boom! :D

  • Perhaps he was hung and jealousy is what caused the other survivors to decide to hang him from the belltower.

  • After the preggo-lady turned Crawford into a bloodbath, he decided he wanted to be a Pope-On-A-Rope....

    That's my take anyway.
