Before Day 1Edit
Dave Beckett was good friends with Rick Jackson during his time of being Governor. Dave Beckett was moments away from calling Rick a day before Day 1, to tell him about the conspiracy with the President, but instead decided to wait until morning.
At 6:02am on Day 1, Dave Beckett was looking out the window of his hotel in San Francisco when a sniper shot him in the neck, and escaped. Dave Beckett died instantly before he could expose President Jackson Hicks' role in the Nuke/Gas conspiracy.
