Lance Grey’s plane touched down at Roanoke Regional Airport. A quick taxi from the landing strip, and the plane stopped in front of a tube-shaped metal hanger. The little four-seater had turned a long drive from upstate New York to an easy, short trip that barely left him feeling tired. However every time he flew into this part of Virginia, he couldn’t help but remember that on the fateful day of May 28th, 1971, the World War II hero and actor Audie Murphy was killed along with four others when their private Aero Commander 680 plane crashed into the side of a mountain near Roanoke. Lance wasn’t old enough to remember the incident firsthand, but he had grown up with a rather eclectic love of movies in which he had gained a great respect for Audie. Any place that has seen the death of a hero usually harbors a villain that either caused the death or was a replacement for the thing that did. In that fact, Lance had a suspicion that whatever was plaguing Roanoke had been there for a very long time.
