They mention in the commentary that there was a subplot where they good looking for the assitants and find his body. At first I thought the Troodon had used the assistant to build their "nest" until it was revealed to be D-caf. I think from a logical perspective it made more sense for him to be the one in the nest. From a character development stand point it made sense to be D-caf.
