Nothing is known about Bennett's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he worked for the Georgia State Correctional Facility.
Bennett, along with Clyde, drive with Vince, Danny, Justin, Marcus and Jerry to prison during the start of the apocalypse. When Marcus starts to strangle Jerry from behind following an argument, he tells the prisoners to settle down. When they don't, he orders Clyde to break up the fight. Clyde then proceeds to kill Marcus by shooting him in the head. Bennett, shocked at what Clyde had done, decides to call the authorities. As he is doing this, Clyde is killed by a reanimated Jerry; he then flees the bus, leaving Vince, Danny, and Justin for dead.
While in the middle of the road, he gets run over by Eddie while he and Wyatt are fleeing from an unknown attacker. If Eddie goes out to check, Wyatt will be forced to flee after the attacker attempts to kill him and during the credits Eddie can later be seen dragging Bennett down the road while the attacker looks on. If Wyatt goes out to check, he will find Bennett in the middle of the road barely alive with a wound around his torso. Wyatt grabs Bennett, but a walker approaches them both from behind, Wyatt kills the walker and can then decide to either leave Bennett or help him.
Help him: (Undead) If Wyatt helps him, he will drag Bennett down the road towards Eddie and the car at the same time killing any walkers that get near the two. Just as Wyatt starts nearing Eddie's car, the attacker from before appears and attempts to kill Eddie. Eddie is then forced to flee while being shot at by his attacker. Wyatt, seeing that Eddie has left, drops Bennett and runs off, leaving him to the nearby walkers.
Leave him: (Dead): If Wyatt decides to leave him, he then makes his way back to Eddie, killing the walkers along the road. Just as Wyatt starts nearing Eddie's car, the attacker from before appears and attempts to kill Eddie. Eddie is then forced to flee while being shot at by his attacker. Wyatt then runs off before being seen by the attacker. During the credits, the attacker will then be seen standing over Bennett with a gun pointed at him, smirking.
Determinately, his reanimated corpse would later be used as a "watchdog" by Roman's group at Gil's Pitstop. He was fed by one of the survivors there, Shel (Determinant). While she was feeding him, she gave her opinion of him to Roman. Bennett will be replaced by Walt (if Nate was not stood up too).
- Killed By
- Eddie (Accidental, Alive)
After turning off onto Yewberry Road to escape Nate, Eddie eventually hits Bennett, unable to see him beforehand due to the thickness of the fog. Regardless of whether or not they try to save him, Bennett dies from blunt trauma and blood loss and eventually reanimates, being used as a watchdog by Shel's group at Gil's Pitstop.
- Wyatt (Indirectly Caused, Determinant; Caused, Determinant)
- Nate (Before Reanimation, Assumed, Determinant)
If Wyatt helps Bennett and leaves him, a photo appeared in credits, Nate checked Bennett and possibly killed him before reanimation, as he is seen smirking at his corpse and holding a gun.
This list shows the victims Bennett has killed:
- Danny (Indirectly Caused, Alive, Determinant)
- Justin (Indirectly Caused, Alive, Determinant)
- Roberto (Indirectly Caused, Determinant)
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies and a few unnamed people
- "What'd you do, boy?"
- — Bennett to Clyde.[src]
When Vince, Danny, and Justin are in the bus, he seems to dislike Clyde, constantly referring to him as boy. He yells at him to get back and break up the scuffle between the two prisoners.

Bennett then flees once he sees Clyde get bitten by the prisoner Clyde apparently saved, not risking himself to help his fellow corrections officer.
