According to MTV Canada published today, “As I Lay Dying” singer Tim Lambesis “was arrested yesterday after allegedly soliciting an undercover police officer to have his estranged wife killed.”
According to Reuters the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department learned that Lambesis sought an accomplice to kill his wife, and he was taken into custody in Oceanside, California, after reaching out to the detective. The San Diego police department is pleased to have prevented a tragedy from happening.
Furthermore, Todd Gilchrist the author of the article on MTV.com states “Lambesis has said he considers himself to be a Christian and acknowledges that he finds inspiration for lyrical content from biblical texts. He is incredibly prolific, having released eight albums with “As I Lay Dying” between 2001 and 2012, as well as five releases via his solo side project “Austrian Death Machine”, where he sings and performs on all instruments. He also produced 11 albums for other artists and is part owner of Lambesis Studios.”
Though quite unusual, spouses hiring hit men are not unheard of. Just last year Huff Post reported that Bob Bashara was taken into custody in an alley outside his house in Grosse Pointe Park, Mich., where, authorities say, he had a sex dungeon in the basement. Bashara’s wife, Jane, was found strangled to death in her SUV on January 25.
Joe Gentz turned himself in to police days later and allegedly admitted he was hired to pose as a handyman by Bashara to kill his wife. Gentz was” held on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy, according to the Free Press. Bashara has never been charged in connection to his wife’s death.
However, the strangest story was reported by Hollywood Life in 2010. They report that Angelina Jolie Allegedly Hired A Hit man To Murder Herself!
They say that, “Angelina Jolie has always been known for her volatile personality. In his new tell-all book, Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography, controversial celebrity biographer Andrew Morton claims that she actually hired someone to kill her! She went through a bit of depression, and suicidal thoughts,” Morton said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends show August 2. On one occasion, she said she hired a hit man and she was going to pay by installments.”
If Lambesis is convicted the public will want to know what would drive this man to do want to do such a horrific thing. What was going through his mind and was he suffering from depression or some other mental illness.?
