Original Story:

It would appear that former As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis has been released from jail early. George Lynch, whose daughter was previously engaged to then As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa, recently told Eddie Trunk on ‘Trunk Nation‘:

“[Tim] is a Biola-trained theologian. The guy’s really super bright. He had an IQ of 160; the guy had a brain like a freaking vice.

I had every freaking argument out there, and he just was able to really kind of battle every argument, ’cause he had every counter-argument prepared in his mind; he had studied so hard. And as silly as his argument was, and as much as it didn’t really hold water when you thought about it — it was all fallacious arguments — but…”

“Anyways, he just got out of jail for attempting to kill his wife. Now I’m not saying this as an indictment against anything. All I’m saying is, there is a guy who could argue Christianity beyond anybody I’ve ever spoken to in my life; I had these very heated debates with this guy… He had a beautiful wife; they had adopted three Cambodian children. And then he discovered cocaine, strippers, heroin and steroids. He went completely off the rails, abandoned his family, his wife threatened to divorce him, he hired an off-duty cop to kill her.

He recently got out of jail. He destroyed his band. They don’t have a pot to piss in now; they’re all struggling. [They are] a great band. I know them very well because, actually, the guitar player was my daughter’s fiancé. And, actually, the drummer [Jordan Mancino] played in another project I had ways back, Souls Of We. So, anyways, he’s out, he’s got a mega record deal, he’s got a book deal, everything’s lined up for him. I mean, he’s gonna skate through life. Everybody else is suffering. His wife is living in fear, his children are living in fear. His band doesn’t have a pot to piss in.”

Lambesis was originally sentenced to a six-year prison sentence back in 2014 after having pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. Lambesis had tried to hire an undercover cop posing as a hitman to murder his then wife, Meggan Lambesis. He was most recently in the press for apparently developing enlarged breasts in prison due to withdrawal from steroid usage. He filed suit against the detention facility and nurse treating him for allegedly failing to provide him with Anastrozole to combat the condition. The outcome of that suit remains a mystery.
