Born Of Osiris guitarist’s home burglarized, knife left at scene
Of the items stolen, the guitarist reports that the home is missing five guitars, four guns, one audio interface, an amplifier, a TV and a camera.
McKinney alleges that the intruder entered through a second floor window. At the crime scene, a knife was found.
“Last night on Monday, March 11th, our home was burglarized,” McKinney says in an email. “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.”
McKinney then goes on to say that he and his wife have contacted authorities, but are safe.
“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,” McKinney says.“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.”The guitarist also took to Twitter to share his emotions following the ordeal, giving credit to his wife.
