Dustin Burwash was the unfortunate victim of the bugs that plagued Oasis Plains.
Like his friend Travis Weaver, Dustin worked for the Gas and Power company. He was working when he noticed ground tremors and went to investigate. He felt the ground and a sink hole suddenly formed under him. Dustin fell into the hole and broke his ankle. While Travis was getting a rope, Dustin noticed bugs coming out of the dirt, coming at him. Dustin was soon killed by the bugs that burrowed into his brain and found by Travis.
