According to NewsOK.com, a "demonic drawing," handwritten notes, a novelty bullet, four knives, a dagger and a CD of the heavy metal group Slipknot were collected from the bedroom floor of a slain couple's burned home in Midwest City, Oklahoma during a police investigation of their teenage grandson.

Kyle Smith, 17, is accused of attacking his grandparents with a machete, videotaping their bodies and setting the house on fire. He is being held in Oklahoma County jail. Prosecutors plan to charge him by April 11.

Police Chief Brandon Clabes said Smith "admitted to investigators when he was arrested that he was into heavy metal music."

According to a police affidavit released last Friday (March 25), Smith used his cell phone to shoot video that shows the couple's bodies on the floor of their home and the end of a machete poking at the heads and eyes of the bodies. Police said Smith can be heard talking during the video, but they would not release what was said.

Police have not released any information suggesting a motive for the killings.

A KOCO-TV report can be viewed at this location.

Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    Why is this on Ultimate guitar? The kid had a slipknot CD..cool I have some zeppelin albums does that make make me a stoner?

    If the story's a fake, and certainly, when I read the headline I just kind of rolled my eyes, figuring it was a late breaking April Fool's joke, the news media is taking it seriously since it is being reported in the papers in Oklahoma. So make of that what thou wilt. Slipknot is a pretty decent band. If any band would make me want to go on a machete wielding rampage it would be Nickelback. Oh the mediocrity! :p

    Fucking journalists. They felt a need to make a headline based off what CD the cops picked up, and mention the kid's taste in music, when the cops themselves didn't even give two shits. It even says the cops haven't said anything about his motive. Yet everybody and their mom is going to think, "Oh, the kid did this because of Slipknot." The journalism here is so yellow if your piss was the same color you'd need to see a freaking doctor. They've managed to state the facts and yet grossly mislead whoever doesn't notice. It takes a special kind of dipshit to do that.

    Can some one tell me if this is real or just an aprils fools joke cause if this is real its really just pointless to mention thefact that there was a slipknot cd at a crime seen unless he purposefully left it there and then the kid is just f***ed up

    ok, so when black and hispanics commit crimes against their own race, why doesnt rap music get the blame? some may say i'm racist,but numbers dont lie. just look at the race of immates and crime statistics. i apologize if your african american or hispanic americans. if you are offended, help us change and teach our children music is meant to relax the soul whether its soft genre or heavy metal. stop trying to brainwash and make music a scapegoat for the failure of parents. The failure of a child is the failure of the parent(s).

    Oh for ****'s sake. The only people that do shit like this all have mental problems, nothing else. If they're going to blame some dimwit for killing his grandparents apparently because of an IOWA CD (that isn't even satanic, just making fun of satanism nothing more)by Slipknot, then tell me why people kill others over sports, money, girls, the ****ing list goes on? Just as there was evolution there is de-evolution happening. Idiocracy at it's best.

    Why doesnt the bible thumpers go after like Brittany Spears, Miley Cyrus, or any other singer or that matter since they have been in the spotlight recently doing something that isnt within moral standards to them or the fact that they dress like they were ready to go 2 rounds in the bed with some total strange guy?..Hypocrisy is the answer! Pull your head out from your fourth point of contact bible thumpers and open your eyes and you might see more than whats right in fron of your face...

    Also, I may not be a fan of Slipknot, but the kid's just ****ed up in the head. They had nothing to do with it. No need to blame something this horrible on a group of musicians, whatever you think of their talent (or lack thereof).

How the **** is that something you "admit" to? Idiots. Sorry, but I don't believe I've heard Slipknot's apparent new hit single "Murder Your Grandparents With A Machete"
    You really should get around to it. It's a great track.

    The thing about the media is they dont have to blame anybody. they set them up for the public to blame. In this case they say the cd is there. Most people know slipknots reputation for being just a bit wierd so everybody blames them. It society im afraid :/

    TLDR all of the above posts, so forgive me if it's been said, but I object to the Slipknot CD being mentioned to suggest that it is somehow linked with a deranged kid, and I also resent Ultimate Guitar posting this as news.

    When will this shit end... Can't people understand that metal doesn't make people mentally sick... Someone starts listening to metal and then kills some one... cool story bro, but it isn't the musics fault... -.-

    Anyone consider they didn't post this because its "news" but because they want to show you how we still have shit like this going on in society?

    I cant belive this, evidently people dont belive TV and Video games are why people murder people, gotta be heavy metal music thats doing it now what next vaccum cleaers? why cant the media accept some people are ****ed in the head or just enjoy killing people
    wangchowder86
    She cd has nothing to do with shit. So the little bastard said he liked heavy metal. If he just randomly said he's into heavy metal then he's probably looking for something besides himself to blame. Thge stupidest thing is. It will probably work.

    I bet if it was a justin beiber CD they wouldn't assume shit, then again anyone who listens to justin bieber doesn't have nuts

    Yes because all murders commited are because of the killer's music preference
    Reisgar42
    So when are we arresting Huey Lewis and the News for Bateman's killing sprees? He tried to shove a cat into a damn ATM!

    SLIPKNOT HAS NOW JOINED OZZY, MANSON, AND JUDAS PRIEST IN THE MEDIA AS BEING MOTIVATORS FOR PSYCOS ALL OVER THE WORLD. hey its not the bands fault that crazy ass punks as well as normal people and those of us who are a little off center, all like the same music but seriously if i had to listen to lady gaga or justin beiber i would have to kill someone

    they're gonna do the exact same thing to slipknot as they did to Manson after columbine happened. it's bullshit. the music didn't cause this kid to do this. his own mental disorders did.
    davee!
    April fools! Haha that's what I thought when I saw the date of this post but then I saw the video... Are they serious about the slipknot cd having any connection tho? And why would he admit to liking metal? I think that would be the last thing on anyone's mind. "What kind of music do you like son?!" -.-
