Rocky Mountain News reports that the Fear Factory song "Bite the Hand that Bleeds" could be tied to a murder:

Westminster police have identified a murder victim found naked with her hands severed as Catrina Renee Powell. Her body was found early on the morning of Oct. 25 behind the Country Meadows shopping plaza in the 7500 block of Sheridan Boulevard.

The night before Powell's body was found, four heavy-metal bands played at the Ogden Theater near where she was last seen. Carlson said Monday that police have explored which bands were appearing at the concert venue at the time and were aware of the heavy-metal show.

One of the bands in the show, Fear Factory, was promoting a new song titled "Bite the Hand that Bleeds." That song, according to the band's Web site, is featured in a recently released film Saw, which features a maniacal killer known as "Jigsaw." That song's lyrics contain the refrain: "One more drop of blood I spill/ one more drop you take/ one more drop and I will spite/ and bite the hand that bleeds."

When asked about that song Monday, Carlson said investigators were not aware of the Fear Factory song and didn't know if it could have any connection to the case.

"To say it might have some significance - perhaps. I couldn't discount it. Perhaps, at the same time, maybe it was just a coincidence. To say it's actually tied in, who knows?" Carlson said.
