- "Go f*ck yourself"
- ―Frank Murdock
Frank Murdock was a former LCPD police officer turned private investigator. Frank excelled at keeping his ear to the ground and was a trusted source for information, though his drinking tended to get in the way of his work.
While living In Liberty City Frank was a brutal and corrupt cop who would regularly plant evidence and tamper with crimes scenes in order to prosecute criminals. These shady practices ultimately led to Frank losing his job, after which he separated from his wife and moved to Los Santos to start his own Private Eye business.
While Frank was a hot head, but he was also a loyal person and a trusted confidant to the people of Los Santos. He routinely partnered up with his close friends Harry Brown, Jeffrey Connors, Jack Deakins, Freddy Price and the rest of SecuroServ to complete various assignments. Frank had an extreme drinking problem and was perpetually drunk, his alcoholism tended to compromise the efficiency of his P.I. work.
Frank had an ex-wife, Debbie Murdock, a Canadian Lawyer whom Frank attempted to re-establish a relationship with. The couple had an 18 year old daughter, Lily Murdock. Lily was tragically murdered by Richard Oakes, a person of interest Frank was investigating.
After the murder of his daughter, Frank made the decision to go on vacation to Hawaii and then move back to Liberty City to be with his wife Debbie. However, after a few months, Frank left Debbie and moved back to Los Santos as a PI. He also joined SecuroServ full-time with a rank of "Special Agent".
On April 15th, 2018 Frank Murdock was shot in the back of the head twice by Freddy Price. Frank had slowly been going insane and after the murder of his daughter. His mental state continued to decline after his involvement in the murder of his best friend, Jack Deakins.
After quitting SecuroServ earlier that day after disrespecting valued SecuroServ clients Rising Sun (he had stabbed Shizuo Orihara earlier in the month, and they demanded Frank perform yubitsume on his little finger to make amends). Frank then also shoot Trooper Mike Bayo, harming SecuroServ's reputation before the upcoming trial for Jack Deakins' Murder. Becoming increasingly frustrated by Frank's behavior, Freddy Price decided to take Frank up to Paleto Lumber Mill along with Mike Lemonade to talk things over. Frank admitted he was empty and lost without Jack and Lily, and wasn't sure where his life was going anymore. Freddy decided his best option was to kill Frank, reluctantly shooting him then-and-there on the side of the mountain.
Mike and Freddy then took his corpse to Vinewood Cemetery and laid Frank to rest next to his daughter Lily Murdock. Several days after, Frank's body was discovered by the police through reports made by locals who witness the event take place. They brought Frank's body to the coroner's office so it would be examined properly.
Frank Murdock's funeral was held on April 22, 2018 by Father Marcus, where he was given a proper burial at the at the Hill Valley Church cemetery next to his daughter. Many of Frank's friends and acquaintances were present at the funeral, including his two estranged sons Ray and Joe Murdock. During the eulogies, Frank's son, Ray, pulled out a note left behind by his father which he began to read as Frank's final message to those he left behind:
- "Life doesn't always turn out the way you expect it to. I just found out I've got untreatable small cell lung cancer and have three to six months to live. Funny enough, I didn't really care when I found out. It got me thinking where it all went wrong and quite frankly I don't know where it all did. I got lost in it all so long ago I almost forgot what it feels like to be human at times. All the lives that I've ruined come with a cost, a steep one at that. I wasn't there for my family when they needed me and look how that turned out. My baby girl dead at the hands of someone much like myself. Jack's death and the trial related to his death is the final straw for me. Sometimes I think about the families that I stomped out of existence when I got kicked off the force. It all boils down to law and my disregards for it. You know the world isn't run by the laws written on paper, its run by people. Some according to the laws others not. It depends on each individual and how his world will be and how he makes it, you also need a lot of luck so that somebody else doesn't make your life fail. It ain't as simple as they tell you in grade school but it's good to have strong values and maintain them; in marriage, in crime, in war, always and everywhere. I messed up, so did Freddy and Jack. We wanted a better life but in the end we were a lot worst off than most other people. You know what I think, it's most important to keep a balance in things. Yeah a balance, that's the right word, because the guy who wants too much risks losing absolutely everything, but of course the guy who wants too little in life might not get anything at all."
