Holy shit! Tim Lambesis, frontman for San Diego metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying has apparently been taken into custody for attempting to hire a hit man to kill his estranged wife. Here’s a snippet from the mostly vague report on yahoo:
“Lambesis was taken into custody on Tuesday in Oceanside, California, after he solicited help from the detective, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. Police had previously learned Lambesis was seeking someone who could commit the slaying, the department said.”
No official statement from the band or record label yet but we’ll keep you posted as more details surface.
The band’s last album, “Awakened” dropped September 25th on Metal Blade Records.
