Not much is known about Johnson's life prior to or as the outbreak began, other than he worked as a police officer and lived in California.
Sometime during the outbreak, Johnson died in a car crash and reanimated. Troy and a group of militiamen approach a bunch of infected wearing orange prison jumpsuits and police officers, including Johnson, next to a crashed bus. Troy bashes Johnson's head in, apparently enjoying it.
