According to ListinDiario.com, the drummer for the heavy metal band EXSANGUINATION THRONE was murdered this past weekend in the Dominican Republic in a case of mistaken identity.
23-year-old José Carlos Hernández, who performed under the name Asmodeo Nefastdrum Shiva, was stabbed more than 27 times early Sunday by a group of men outside the Gustavo Live Pub in Santo Domingo.
Three men between the ages of 24 and 28 — Josaías Benjamín Mota Lorenzo, Máximo Dalvin Almánzar Guerra and Miguel Ángel Bautista Mota — were arrested in connection with the attack.
One of the suspects — who was caught with the 10-inch knife used in the killing — told police that he and the other men mistakenly thought Hernández raped a woman they knew a month ago, police spokesman Diego Pesqueira said.
José Carlos Hernández was the son of the late musician Jochy Hernández and reporter María del Carmen Hernández, who was a presenter on the program “Despierta América” on Univision.
