According to a news report by Las Vegas Now, Goatlord guitarist Joe Frankulin committed suicide after killing a mother in front of her children and executing one of the boys.
The article reports that Frankulin entered the home of Jennifer Bagley Donoso and fatally shot her before grabbing the oldest son. He then dragged the oldest boy back to his home, barricaded himself inside and killed the boy. Frankulin then turned the gun on himself.
Neighbors testified that Frankulin’s behavior had become increasingly bizarre and suspicious, with one resident going so far as to say that “I even told my wife that I had some feeling that something is not right about him and he was kind of … you know shady and he kind of gave me that eerie feeling.”
