Born Of Osiris home studio robbed

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 11:03 AM PT


Born Of Osiris guitarist Lee McKinney had a handful of valuable items stolen on Monday night when the home he and his wife share was burglarized. According to McKinney, who is currently on tour, one of the intruders was armed with a knife. Among the valuables taken were five guitars and four guns. He had the following to say:

"Last night on Monday, March 11th, our home was burglarized. The intruder(s) entered through a second floor window and carried a knife that was left on the scene, which makes us feel as if they were willing to potentially do more than walk out with material items had someone been home. Stolen items include a TV, 5 guitars, 1 audio interface, 4 guns, 1 camera, and 1 amplifier.

"We have notified the local police and a full investigation is underway. We're hoping that by bringing this to public attention that anyone who sees one of these items on sale in any way could help us track down the person who did this. Material items are one thing, but justice against the person who came into our home with a weapon is of the utmost importance. Fortunately our family is safe. Thank you for your time and concern, and we greatly appreciate any and all information you might have."

The serial numbers of the missing instruments are: Walnut LPM7 - 69540, Honey V6X - 132686, Monster O7X - 139438, Sea Foam VB5 - 139204

He should be worried about those missing guns. Illinois gun laws say that, if a murder is committed with any of those weapons, homeboy is on the hook for it.

Buy a gun safe. Don't leave your shit laying out.

Sounds like these guys specifically went for instruments and equipment, the TV seems like it was taken for the hell of it. Inside job or some other band that was robbed just trying to get new gear.

^ seems pretty clear that if you entered an otherwise normal house with the intent to rob it and you discovered a home studio, you'd prioritize taking expensive studio equipment over silverware and plates.

Before Born Of Osiris blew up, their synth player (?) used to record bands out of his parents basement. I remember a story about a particular band that was friends with the kid, and immediately after they loaded in and sound checked, the kid's Mom berated him from the top of the stairs and tried to boot everyone out. Band recorded a couple drum tracks, and the b*tch made a fuss again so the band had to do two sessions.

Well, when the drummer got his kit back, the retards in BOO had played on it and apparently gouged the sh*t out of the double bass pedal. BOO dudes almost shit their pants for years to come whenever they would see the drummer around town ha ha ha.

This is why you always lock your studio and back it up against a building.

I remember these kids being straight nerds. Only played at the EG VFW, the Clearwater Theater, Rainbow Falls, or KOC. Hardly ever supported the other IL bands busting their ass
and would seldomly come to shoes they weren't playing.

Band suddenly gets signed, and these fools are trying to cool guy cats from the Chicago scene with their full sleeves of space shit they had practically gotten overnight.

With Sumerian, this band would have been nothing.

Dude realized he married a bitch that looks like a dog and tried to pull a Lambesis.
The disappearance of the gear was simply a distraction cuz the broad wasn't home.
