As I Lay Dying Lead Singer Tim Lambesis Arrested in Murder-For-Hire Plot by Team Addict on 2013-05-09 10:31:50
According to an article posted Tuesday by Reuters, heavy metal singer Tim Lambesis of group As I Lay Dying was arrested on charges of seeking help from an undercover detective to have his wife killed. As expected many of their fans are in shock. The group doesn't necessarily consider itself a "Christian" band but the members are according to some. Nevertheless it's a popular metal band in Christian circles and devastating to all involved.
The band posted the following quote on their website to their fans:
"To our fans,
As we post this, the legal process is taking its course and we have no more information than you do. There are many unanswered questions, and the situation will become clearer in the coming days and weeks. We'll keep you informed as best we can.
Our thoughts right now are with Tim, his family, and with everyone else affected by this terrible situation - and with our fans, whom we love and draw strength from.
Thank you for understanding, and as always, for your support of As I Lay Dying.
