On Monday, a Colorado jury found Christian Gulzow, the founder of a goth metal band, guilty of second-degree murder. The individual, who was wearing demonic face paint and bladed gloves at the time of the attack, stabbed to death Brian Lucero, a homeless person. It’s still unclear why the two argued.
Colorado Goth Metal Band Founder Wore Gloves with Blades and Face Paint During Attack
This week, 37-year-old Christian Gulzow, the founder of The Paranormal, a local goth metal band, was found guilty of second-degree murder, after being initially charged with first-degree murder.
According to court documents, on the 23rd of May 2017, Gulzow had an altercation with Brian Lucero, a 29-year-old homeless person. The conflict took place in the parking lot of Torchy’s Tacos. To this day, the authorities have been unable to establish the reason behind Gulzow’s attack.
At the time of the attack, the accused was wearing white demonic face paint. Authorities believe that Gulzow was coming back from a concert, as he’s the founder and vocalist of The Paranormal, a Colorado goth metal band.
According to the detectives, Gulzow is also the vocalist of a heavy metal band, and, apparently, the owner, founder, and promoter of @ΨWorldMusicStudiosΨ specialized in metal music.
On the night of the attack, Gulzow was also wearing a pair of bladed gloves. The authorities declared that each blade measured 2 to 3 inches.
Gulzow slashed Lucero’s throat and left on his scooter. The first responders pronounced Lucero dead at the scene. Using street cam footage, the authorities were able to identify the homeless man’s killer.
When the goth metal band founder was found, he was still wearing the same outfit. Furthermore, the arresting officers said that Gulzow’s shirt was covered in fresh blood.
