Slipknot CD Seized During Search Of Homicide Scene
0
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.

    Sad? It would be great for slipknot's career if this gets blamed on them. In regards to rock music, the saying "there is no such thing as bad publicity" usually rings true. That being said, this article seems like cherry picking quotes to elicit up negative comments on the part of Blabbermouth (they have a history of doing things like that). In the actual news article from NewsOK, the thing about him "admitting" to being a heavy metal fan seems like a bit of a throw away thing. This isn't the 1990s anymore, the "heavy metal caused him to do this" thing doesn't seem to be as sexy to the media these days, so all you Slipknot fans can stop getting your panties in a twist. There's not gonna be CNN cameras covering this for weeks on end with a series of flashy graphics that say "Metal Murder in the Midwest" or "Metal Seduction: Are Your Kids at Risk" or some other stupid thing like that. Seems like the kid (who looks like a total piece of white trash by the way, if he was that fat kid in the photo grouping) just volunteered this information. Probably so he can try to plead insanity because the metal music messed with his already unstable mind or some business along that line. If the good people of Oklahoma have any sense they will put this animal in a cage for the rest of his life or euthanize him. That's just my take, for whatever it's worth.

    Admit it. Listening to Hannah Montana does make you want to kill somebody. Aside from that, they've been blaming x for y even when x had nothing to do with it for a long time. GTA, D&D, The Beatles (Helter Skelter), etc.

    Are you serious? So say Mother Teresa just so happened to listen to Dig by Mudvayne and she'll talk someone 'the wrong way off a ledge'? This is retarded. Music doesn't make us who we are. We listen to the music that describes who we are. This kid just so happened to like Slipknot....and was ****ing insane.

    The last thing this damn bands needs is more publicity. I'm so sick of hearing about them, no matter what the context.

    I hope this is April Fools.. If not, this isn't news, and this is pointless.

    And then street gang members shoot at each other and medias don't talk shit about gangster rap music eh...
    almario1402
    So if I listen to Justin Bieber while murdering people, will he be held responsible?
    andrey33
    So we blame heavy metal for "at-home-satanic-themed-homocides", then we blame rap for "in-the-ghetto-violence", then we blame all the 60's,70's etc music for alcohool and drug abuse. Well I guess we should ban everything from th 60's till now alltogether, THAT's gonna stop crime allright !

    **** this shit, when a rapper kid, or pop kid does this, they dont tell you that they had a hannah montana cd or kanye west poster on their wall. This is the media's way in saying: "Metal is evil and only bad people listen to it" This is why I fukkin hate the media!!!!!

    dial-a-death ok, now who's been ounting the number of murders comitted by Mayhem, Dark Throne, Ragnorak, Gorgoroth and Cannibal Corpse fans? ...Anybody?
    It would have been much easier to make a joke out of this if you'd said Burzum instead of Mayhem.

    Who gives a shit if he likes metal music, pop, rap, dance or ANY music for that matter. Should not make one god damn difference. How many people are killed that are in those shitty little gangs? How come we dont keep hearing their was a Tupac cd in the car of homies who gunned innocent people down. Media sensationalists are there best.

    research shows tht more crimes are made by people who listen to pop, rap, r n b, and s*** like tht, so rather than researching this they just go and blame metal music? mother f***ers

    Prosecutors plan to charge him by April 11. unlucky... he's not gonna get to play portal 2 what a psyco though
    Scream-Machine
    So in fact...this guy who killed the grandparents cannot be found guilty since he is not the one to blame, but Slipknot is...The guy can't be hold responsible for who he has done. It's slipknot that should be hold responsible...for making that satanworshipping music and hidden message in their lyrics!!!!! Sue them!
    P@+<h3$
    Slipknot are pretty brutal. you have to expect some stupid kid to take the lyrics too seriously. the dude was looking for attention cuz he's obviously a f**king tool... now because of that fat prick, all metalheads look bad

    Im so sick of this bullshit, I'm not even a slipknot fan, but they'll get blamed for this and its unfair and unjust. It doesn't matter if the killer likes Marilyn Masnon, Slipknot, Grand theft auto or whatever. plenty of people can listen to metal, or play GTA without killing people or whatever, those things dont make you a murderer or psycho. Its just a scape goat

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"

    wtf? So I can kill someone just because I listen to heavy metal music? What.The.Fuck. This is bullshit. It's like WM3 all over again, huh?

    Why is it always the tame Metal that gets blamed? When was Dying Fetus last blamed for a murder, or any Goregrind band? But no, it's the tame, hot topic sounds of Shitknot and Marylin Manson that are just too violent for our childrens ears.

    Have you been listening to metal again? If you aren't careful you'll wake up next to a corpse.
