In news that has shocked the metalverse, Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying was arrested yesterday for allegedly soliciting an undercover officer to murder his wife.

Artisan News Service has now posted a video clip online with more details, including an interview with a member of the San Diego Sheriff's Department discussing the investigation and the arrest of Lambesis.

Although there has been no statement from any of Lambesis' various bands at this point (As I Lay Dying, Pyrithion, Austrian Death Machine), the San Diego Sheriff website does list Tim as being detained and set for arraignment tomorrow (May 9th) for charges of solicitation and conspiracy to commit murder.

It is assumed at this time that the band's tour with Killswitch Engage will be cancelled. Tim Lambesis also recently launched a crowd funding campaign to record a new Austrian Death Machine album, and the fate of that recording is likewise considered to be on hold or canceled. Tim also posted a video online just a few days ago defending his band Pyrithion from the religious fans of As I Lay Dying who were concerned with the darker and more extreme bent his latest project was taking.

This is crazy a$$ sh**. I dont believe it. I think it's a hokes. ADM#3 hasn't come out yet, And further more This guy is very successful. So are all his partners and band mates. I seriously doubt he's got time to plan a murder. People have said sh** about me like this before too. I even had my house raided and interrogated. I was not guilty. There's plenty of haters out there. This could be some kindof attempt at $$$ extraction. But who know's really,.. I've never even seen his wife. But if he did f*** up and ask the wrong person, The b**** probly had it coming.

...had it coming? It doesn't even remotely matter what she did. Hiring someone to kill your wife is never acceptable under any circumstances. This seems obvious to me.
