Lawyer: Steroids to Blame in As I Lay Dying Frontman’s Murder-for-Hire Case

Metal Blade Records

On May 17, As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis appeared in Vista Superior Court for a bail hearing. Lambesis is currently facing charges on allegedly attempting to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife earlier this month, and in this new hearing, Lambesis’ defense lawyer blamed steroid use for the singer’s actions.

Lambesis’ defense lawyer, Thomas Warwick, told the court that the As I Lay Dying singer had taken to weightlifting, eating healthier and became a spokesperson for nutritional supplements. Somewhere along the line, Lambesis began using steroids to enhance his bodybuilding habit, and according to his lawyer, the steroids are to blame for Lambesis’ erratic behavior.

“His thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use,” states Warwick, according to “It has been a terrible tragedy. He was a very caring, gentle man and we need to get him back.” Warwick further declared that Lambesis “was not the same person. He was irritable and lost [his belief in] God.”

The May 17 hearing was also used to potentially lower Lambesis’ bail down from $3 million to $250,000. The singer’s bail was successfully lowered to $2 million, but Lambesis remains incarcerated as he has not been able to pay the amount.

Stay tuned as further developments occur.
