Phil Fasciana Of Malevolent Creation Didn't Stop Store Robbery?

Rockradio.co.uk has run a story about Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation apparently lying about stopping a convenience store robbery. Excerpts from the story follow.

Rock news outlets have been reporting how Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation interrupted a store hold-up last week. The guitarist has said he was shot at four times before disarming the junkie perp and shooting him dead. But with no one to back him up, reporters have been asking whether it really happened. Rock Radio has the answer.

Rock Radio has spoken to Detective Mark Shotwell of Fort Lauderdale Police's homicide squad, who says he’s been unable to find any evidence of such an event.

He explains: “This did not happen. Our last murder was on June 22 and Fasciana was not involved. I’m certain of this. Even if the death was a result of self-defence it would still be classed as a homicide and investigated as such.”

“All witnesses, reportees, victims and suspects are entered into a database, but the most recent entry for Fasciana is on April 1, involving him and a female in a domestic dispute."

Rock Radio has spoken to Fasciana about Detective Shotwell’s comments, and the guitarist replies: “The store where it took place isn’t considered Fort Lauderdale. What happened is true and I really don’t know how it leaked into Blabbermouth because I never told anyone about it.”

But Shotwell explains: “There are about 15 suburbs near Fort Lauderdale, but all murders use the Broward County Medical Examiners’ office for autopsies - mandatory in a homicide. There have been no murders in the entire county during July. 'Homeless crackheads' would trade a gun as soon as they got it and I've never seen one with two guns. And the scenario as described would have made headlines – even in Miami.”
