Singer of black metal band ‘stabbed to death by fan’ for tarnishing Satan
The singer of a black metal band has been stabbed to death for tarnishing Satan.
Samong “Avajee” Traisattha, 36, was discovered by his wife lying in a pool of blood in his living room.
The lead singer and bassist of Surrender of Divinity had earlier welcomed a fan of the band into his home in Thailand.
His wife Jaruvan Surapol, 34, told cops she left to put her children to bed but when she returned an hour later on January 8 she found her dead husband.
Detectives later found a one-foot knife belonging to the killer. Cops now believe the main suspect is the fan who visited Traisattha at home, the Huffington Post reported.
A message on Facebook by somebody claiming to be the killer a few days after the death said the singer was killed because he was bad-mouthing Satan.
The user – called Maleficent Meditation – also posted pictures of the crime scene on the social network site.
As reported by dreamindemon.com, he said: “In my view, I have more respect for devoted Buddhists, Christians and Muslims than those who call themselves Satanists without knowing anything about it… If I did not kill him, I’m sure he would be murdered by someone else later… above all else, Satan is not a toy. Do not call yourself a Satanist if you do not believe in Satan!!!”.
Police are now hunting for the fan who visited the house.
