Metal Star Impersonator Tried To Kill Girl
According to UK newspaper 'Daily Mail', David Russell has been jailed for life after attempting to murder a 19-year old Maricar Benedicto. Russell met the American teen on Facebook last year, claiming that he was BMTH vocalist Oli Sykes.
After ongoing communication via the internet, Benedicto flew from California to the UK to see him. Shortly after she arrived, Russell took her to a forest and convinced her to wear a blindfold claiming he had a gift for her. "Gift" must carry a different meaning overseas — Russell then slit her throat, stabbed her in the back four times, headbutted and hit her in the face with a log. more on this story
