Slipknot Songs Lead To Murder?
20 year-old Jason Lamar Harris and 16 year-old Amber Rose Riley have been charged with murdering their 22-year-old friend Terry Ray Taylor. The suspected reportedly stabbed Taylor over 20 times and slashed his throat. During an interrogation they told detectives that they listened to Slipknot before and after the murder.
The suspects reportedly planned the murder months before they lured Taylor into a park where they assaulted him. Police found Taylor’s body under at tree at Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino, California.
Two detectives who are working the case testified in court last Thursday that the suspectes admitted that they used Slipknot’s music to get fired up for murder. According to the San Bernardino County Sun, police told the court that the suspected quoted the following lyrics from the song “Disasterpiece”, "I wanna slit your throat and f*** the wound/ I wanna push my face in and feel the swoon."
The suspects are being held without bail and the case is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on July 18th. Prosecutors have stated that 16-year-old Amber Rose Riley will be tried as an adult due to the grisly nature of the murder.
At press time, the Slipknot camp have yet to comment on this case.
