The Death of the Lashers
Hank Lasher was the brightest student at his high school and had a full entry scholarship to one of the best colleges in the nation. However, while being in the same room as his parents when they studied a rock fragment called Pixaliemain, Hank was believed to be consumed by an alien test subject, a creature that also slaughtered his parents.
