Static-X Guitarist Busted On Sex Assault, Kidnapping Charges

Ken Serrano and Chris Jordan of New Jersey's Asbury Park Press have issued the following report:

He told the 14-year-old Sayreville girl he was "T-Rex" and he liked to impersonate the guitarist for the heavy metal band they both liked, STATIC-X, authorities said.

But the 39-year-old man accused of meeting the girl through the Internet, driving from Pennsylvania and sexually assaulting her in an Old Bridge shopping center in January was no impersonator, police said.

Tod Rex Salvador, who goes by the stage name Tripp Eisen, a guitarist for STATIC-X, was apprehended Thursday in Orange County, Calif. by two detectives from New Jersey, authorities said.

Salvador, of Burbank, Calif., was charged with kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault, luring to entice a minor through the Internet and endangering the welfare of a child. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 30 years in prison on the kidnapping charge alone.

When Det. Scott Crocco of the Old Bridge Police Department and Det. Sgt. David Jones of the state police encountered Salvador, he had just gotten out of jail.

Police in California arrested Salvador on Feb. 10 after finding him sleeping in a parked car with a girl with whom he had just had sexual intercourse, said Jon Fleischman of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Salvador was charged with committing a lewd act with a child and was released after posting $100,000 bail, Fleischman said.

Following his arrest Thursday technically on a fugitive warrant from New Jersey, Salvador was turned over to the Central Men's Jail in Santa Ana, Calif. He is being held there without bail while he awaits extradition to New Jersey, authorities said.

"We've confiscated several computers to examine them to see if there are other victims," Lt. Kevin Rehmann of the New Jersey State Police said. "We suspect there may be in several other states."

STATIC-X is one of the most popular groups to emerge from what's known as the nu-metal scene of the late 1990s that spawned bands like KORN.

The band released its debut album, "Wisconsin Death Trip", in 1998. The album went gold, selling half a million copies. A new album is scheduled for release later this year.

A call placed to the band's publicist at Warner Bros. was not returned. A management company, The Firm, referred calls to Salvador's Los Angeles-based attorney, Mark Werksmen, who did not return calls.

Police said the Sayreville girl met Salvador on a web site where he used the screen name "groverygodadat" under the heading "never married male looking for female."

"He tells the girl he's a fan of the band and portrays himself to look like the guitarist in (STATIC-X)," Rehmann said.

He drove out to Old Bridge on Jan. 7 from Pen Argyl, Pa., in a truck belonging to a Pennsylvania relative, said Lt. Robert Weiss of the Old Bridge Police Department. Salvador, who once lived in New Jersey, was back in Pennsylvania from the West Coast on an extended holiday visit.

Police said he had consensual sex with the Sayreville girl in the truck in the parking lot of the shopping center. The girl's mother found out about the assault and went to Old Bridge detective Thomas Montagna, Weiss said.

An Orange County Sheriff's Department arrest log dated February 10 confirms that STATIC-X guitarist Tod Rex Salvador, who goes by the stage name Tripp Eisen, was arrested in California on charges of "crimes against children." The log lists Salvador's date of birth as June 29, 1965 and gives his height as 5' 10 and weight as 160 lbs.

Why would someone with that kind of power wan't a child it makes no sense.First Michael Jackson then R.Kelly now this guy . What the f*** is wrong with these loser's.If I had the level of fame that I could do this kind of sh** I'd be after PAM ANDERSON or SUNRISE ADAMS (porn stars are adult's too)someone like that but not a child !!! what's this world coming too !!!

These all go back to way before Crack and Cocaine were ever a factor not to mention Oil.The point I'm attempting to make is once you've had sex you are never quite the same againe . This is exactly how you get the everyone from the Slut down the street to the Hookers at the BUNNY RANCH to JENNA JAMESON.A child of that age is not ready for that kind of activity.Their's no justifying his actions.

That's money that they could put a high sin tax on instead of sticking it to the poor.Also they could cut down on the spread of disease by requiring all prostitutes to be checked for HIV,AIDS and other STD's monthly . In vegas if the girls catch anything they can't work for six month's to indefinite time frames depending on what they caught .

all u people pf f***ing crazy. first static-x, murderdolls, and dope are all great bands and tripp is a really good guitarist. this incident shouldn't take away from his accomplishments. second i have personally known girls that were 14,15,16 and have been with 30 year old men of their own will. third this girl was 14, all of you keep referring to her as a child, as far as my knowledge goes when you are 14 you are no longer considered a child. Saying child makes it sound worse than it already is, granted its still pretty bad, but girls that do willing have sex with much older men. and not to defend tripp or anything because it was such a digusting act, but girls today look so much older than they actually are and it is much easier for them to lie about their age and then just as easily accuse a person who has trusted them on their word.

technically, having sex with a minor is always rape, even if it is concentual, because they don't have the legal right to grant their approval. personally, who cares if she got raped? i mean, anybody stupid enough 2 meet with sumbody they met online deserves to be raped and/or murdered anyways. he's a dumbass in a crappy poser band that was more image than substance, and she was a stupid slut, so F 'em both.

okay-im assuming all of you are men[which makes perfect sense] men have noooooo idea what its like to be a 14 year old girl.or the way girls are forced[FORCED] to grow up in certain ways, especially in certain years.and men take that in, so many men like little girls.underage. its like sport and its disgusting., of course this girl made a stupid mistake,no ones said anything different. but tripp lied to her, raped her. hes a predator.i dont realy feel the need to keep talking. talking to a man about women is like telling a knock knock joke to a brick wall.

mwitherow I understand your point but your not being fair.Their arent many of us if any bashing the girl involved.Also her parent's are at fault as well they should be paying more attention to their child this kind of negligence is how we get sh** like columbine.If tripp's going to jail her parent's should get locked up with him.It's just as much their fault as his.Then they want to blame Hollywood and the Music industry when their kid does something dumb.She's still a minor she still lives in your house she still lives under your rules and that should be the end of it.

I found out yesterday. I read he is supposed to meet a judge today sometime. I am really shocked and I am still trying to take the whole thing in. I have been searching through the internet for more information. I read this morning that he is on suicide watch. People, even if he does get cleared he is ruined. No one will want to EVER work with him again in fear that he might commit the act again and put the band in jeopardy. He will be lucky to find a band that will take mercy on him and allow him to join. I just wanted to say, what if the girl he f***ed really lied about her age? who's fault is it then? I remember being 15 and telling guys i was 18 beause they wouldnt date me otherwise. If you really liked somebody (especially a rock star) and if you only had one chance to get him wouldnt you lie too maybe? (i am saying this in a girls point of view). Men tend to stay away from younger girls, its like they smell the stentch from a mile away (jail bait) you feel limited and rejected at times. I am 21 now and i realise that it was a foolish time in my life but EVERYONE goes through this. What I am trying to say is that... no way in hell is TRipp completely responsible, she knew what she was doing and if she opened up her legs for him she knew it was wrong but she made the choice to ruin him so she could probably daydream about her one night with a rock star. she will probably treasure it forever and she will blame herself. Guys, you need to look at both ends before you judge anyone.
much respects.
