Dead Man Walking - Mission Details:

Michael meets Dave at Gallio Observatory. Dave knows it was Michael that hit the jewellery store. Michael admits it was him and also tells Dave that Trevor is back. Instead of arresting Michael for his heist, he asks for a favour. He wants information on a guy named Ferdinand Kerimov. The IAA has declared him dead but the FIB doesn't believe it and think he's being debriefed somewhere. 

Ferdinand has some information on Dave that could get him into trouble. Dave wants Michael to head to the morgue and identify the body.  Michael asks how he's going to get into the morgue, as it's heavy on security, so Dave knocks him out and states "You've played dead before". 

Michael wakes up in the morgue while two examiners are about to prepare an autopsy on his body. He knocks out one of them but the other gets away. A guard appears but Michael sneaks behind him and takes him down. Michael takes a look at the other bodies in the morgue. He finds the one with Ferdinand's tag on it but the body is clearly not his, instead, it's one of a woman. Michael calls Dave to let him know his findings. 

While on the phone with Dave, an alarm starts ringing, cueing Michael to start escaping. Dave tells him he'll have to go up to get out as the lower floors are locked down. Michael makes his way up the building, taking out guards on the way. Once on the upper floor, Michael's clothes and weapons will be there for him to retrieve. After claiming his items, he shoots out a window and jumps into a dumpster, leaving the building. 

There's now a three-star heat on Michael meaning he now needs to lose the cops. Once he's evaded the cops, he calls Franklin to let him know they need to talk. They plan to meet at the oil derricks in El Burro Heights. Once there, Michael tells Franklin to leave town as the FIB will be on his case soon. As Michael helped him out, he decides to stay in Los Santos and help Michael back. 

Dead Man Walking: Mission Objectives

  • Search the morgue for the body.
  • Escape from the building.
