Former GOATLORD Guitarist Involved In Double Murder Suicide

According to KSNV, guitarist Joe Frankulin of black/doom metallers GOATLORD killed a woman and her 7-year-old son before turning the gun on himself last Friday, October 2.

The mother and her young son were identified as Jennifer Bagley Donoso and her oldest son, Lex.

The 47-year-old Frankulin reportedly spray-painted "I LOVE YOU BABY" on a garage door, a message that was apparently meant for Lexus.

The police said there appeared to have been previous disputes between the man and the woman, but they offered no details. Frankulin had no criminal record in Clark County, court records show.

One of Frankulin's neighbors said that Frankulin sold most of his possessions in the past few weeks and "barricaded" his house.

"The last six months he kind of gave me a really eerie feeling," the neighbor said. "Like the way he acted. His demeanor. He would always be around children."

According to GOATLORD's Facebook page, the band was active for at least 10 years beginning in 1987.

A Facebook post created under Frankulin's name said he had failed to reunite the band for a festival in Germany last year.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Frankulin was described as heavy-set with long hair and is said to have often worn visibly dirty clothes.
