The family of a southern Indiana man, that claims he died from a “brain eating amoeba,” now wants health officials to test other lakes and spread awareness about the parasite.

30-year-old Waylon Abel of Loogootee went swimming in West Boggs Lake in July and died a few weeks later. His father, John Abel, said the autopsy revealed Waylon was killed by primary amebic meningoencephalitis, or PAM.
