Tim Lambesis (As I Lay Dying) was arrested Tuesday, May 7 after allegedly trying to hire an undercover detective to kill his estranged wife. You can read part of a report after the jump.
Police had previously learned Lambesis was looking for someone to carry out the killing, Caldwell said.
“The information came to us late last week. We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy,” she said.
Caldwell said the ongoing investigation prevented her from disclosing any details about why Lambesis might have wanted to have his wife killed or how police first learned about what they described as his murder plan.
Lambesis’ wife, Meggan, filed papers in San Diego Superior Court in September 2012 seeking a dissolution of marriage, according to an online court database.
A representative for the As I Lay Dying’s record label, Metal Blade, could not immediately be reached for comment and it was unclear if Lambesis had an attorney. No one answered the door at the singer’s home in Del Mar, 20 miles north of San Diego, and neighbors declined to talk about him.
