The CCTV cameras at the porch revealed nothing.

A teenager could not disappear from this earth without leaving footprints,
thought Inspector Sher.

While his staff scanned for clues, he looked at the unusual. A quaint wooden 
mask mounted on the wall with muddy imprints on the floor beneath seemed 
to beckon his attention.  

He turned sideways to hear the faint beats of, ‘Highway to Hell.’  

He pulled the mask and inserted the javelin into the keyhole.The resonating
strains of music grew louder.

The teen walked out with blood on his hands while the mask from his father’s 
face fell.
