Arrest Made In Bury Your Dead Robbery/Assault

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee police have arrested a 19-year-old man they believe was involved in the weekend armed robbery of BURY YOUR DEAD guitarist Eric Ellis, who had just played a show at The Rave.

The victim, 23, was sitting in a car about 12:30 a.m. Sunday when he was held up by five men, two with guns, according to Milwaukee police. He handed over a bag of jewelry, and the robbers fled the parking lot, near N. 24th St. and W. Wisconsin Ave.

The victim chased the robbers and caught up with them but was kicked, suffering a cut to his head.

Department spokesman Bobby Lindsey said the 19-year-old suspect was arrested Monday and remains in police custody. The case is expected to be referred to prosecutors Wednesday. Police continue to seek other suspects in the crime, Lindsey said.

In a statement released yesterday, the members of BURY YOUR DEAD denied that robbery was the motive for the attack, claiming that the Milwaukee police have classified the incident as a "gang initiation." According to the group's statement, Ellis "was a victim of a random attack by six individuals. . . Eric was held at gunpoint while the men hit him multiple times with a baseball bat and hammer."

Post 2: Unfortunately there are useless people in this world who have had bad parent's that did not bother to teach them how to do hard work. They want nothing more than to get easy fast money and be complete losers. Furthermore they think that what they do is a job. They have no education or any talent in which to better the world. I would love to see a real version of the Boodock Saint's as they do have a talent in which would better the world.

yeah kalis i agree. im sure a few of us would probably sing up for THAT type of job, silenced gun+a scumbag's head = a hell of a better world. the way i see it cops dont do enough to clean up the streets if anything at all (in some towns). they rather harass speeders than put criminals behind bars.

From the other thread it seems that Bury you dead have not been decent people them self's, but my above statement still holds. I am surprized at what is comming out about this band!

R.E, I know what you mean. It also seems some cops would rather harras you for smokeing in a public area where no kids are anyways than find killers, robbers, gang bangers, thieves and mobsters. I am very proud of the cops that have been in my family as they truely did some good, but there is always "a couple of bad seeds that ruin the crop" so to speak.

1. If they came from a broken home they may be able to write something with which they can gaim some respect.
2. Pete was probably acting.

Fuk Bury Your Dead...you screw with people and you get consequences...always happens. I am glad the guy wasn't murdered, but this band is a piece of sh1t~
He was also foolish chasing after the guys after they supposedly beat him with baseball bats and hammers. He is lucky to be alive.
