There’s been some more developments with Slaves guitarist Alex Lyman coming to Radke‘s aid, claiming he was with him the whole day in question. The alleged victim of the assault has also spoken out as well, check that out here.
Update – June 05th 01:33pm:
Ronnie Radke himself has provided the following statement regarding the accusations to Alternative Press:
“The Internet is a wonderful place because everyone has a voice. It’s also an awful place for the same reason. This isn’t the first time people have taken it upon themselves to spread ugly, unsubstantiated claims about myself and my friends. No one from our band or crew were arrested in Utah. After our show in Salt Lake City, we were concerned for someone who appeared to be under the influence and called 911. I personally spoke with law enforcement. I certainly was never under arrest or charged with any crime.”
Alternative Press also utilized their resources to contact the Murray City Police Department detective assigned to the case, but have yet to hear back. No police report on the alleged incident has been made available as of yet either.
Accusations of gang rape have been leveled at Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke and his cohorts following the bands June 03rd show at the Murray Theater in Murray, UT. The alleged victim, Kacee Boswell, has been active on her Facebook, posting:
“I’ve been a victim of sexual assault too many times. Once is too many. Four times is too many for any person. Please pray for me”
“Broken nose (previous to assault) bruises all over my body and a three inch contusion on my jaw and torn throat ligaments from fighting back. Thanks Ashley-Jade Thewlis & Levi Rounds for taking care of me and putting that monster on blast.”
“The situation has blown up on social media. He even tweeted about me being a dumbass.
75% is fangirls saying I should kill myself and 25% are people saying he can never come back to Utah.
As if having a rape kit and a severe contusion on my jaw weren’t enough.”
“It was the Murray Police Department and I got a rape kit immediately. I’ve also known him for ten years. Victim shaming is a huge part of the problem with rape culture. I don’t know y’all but I hope as you get older you learn that. Thank you Lacie, Danilo & David.”
A friend of Boswell‘s has also been speaking publically on the incident, posting:
“A pile of literal human garbage named Ronnie Radke gang raped someone really important to me last night (because that’s how real men treat women, with their bodyguard as backup) and tossed her out onto the curb. He’s some has been, talentless musician that was playing the Murray Theater last night. If any of my friends book him, defend him, or even mention his name around me, we aren’t friends anymore. I hope he dies a slow painful death surrounded by people cheering on his suffering, Christ like, minus the martyrdom.
I haven’t cried this much in over a year, and nothing even happened to me. The person it happened to is one of the strongest individuals I’ve ever met in my life. She’s going to be ok. Just the fact that someone can do this to another person makes me sick and sad for our whole race. Fuck him, his garbage music and everything he stands for.
Please no shitty jokes. This isn’t an open mic forum. Just me venting online instead of kicking a fucking wall.”
A witness to the alleged rape has also come forward and according to him, the police are apparently involved. Radke himself doesn’t appear to have directly addressed the allegations publically as of yet. Radke‘s past dalliances with the law have been for domestic battery and injuring fans by throwing mic stands into the crowd, as well as two and a half years in prison for his involvement in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man combined with past non-violent offenses.
