Would You Pay $500 For AS I LAY DYING Frontman Tim Lambesis' Prison ID Card?
You remember Tim Lambesis right? The As I Lay Dying frontman was arrested and eventually convicted of solicitation of murder after attempting to hire a hitman to murder his now ex-wife. Lambesis is currently serving a six-year sentence.
If you happen to be a die-hard fan of Lambesis, and just want to get your hands on a one-of-a-kind item, Lambgoat reports Lambesis' prison inmate ID card is now available to be bid on via eBay. The seller claims to be a fellow inmate:
"Tim Lambesis is an American musician and producer, best known as the founding member and lead vocalist of American metal-core band As I Lay Dying. He was sentenced in May 2014 to six years for trying to hire a hit-man to murder his wife. Current owner (who wishes to remain anonymous) of this article was incarcerated with Tim and befriended him. When asked by Tim what he could do for his close friend (and self-claimed biggest fan!), this identification card was given to him by request. There is only one like it… outside of prison, that is."
As of this writing, there are no bids at the starting asking price of $500, and there is just under 9 days left. Here is the auction page.
I'm curious how this inmate got the ID card from Lambesis, and if Lambesis has since gotten a replacement? Back in 2014, we took an in-depth look at the trial, before Lambesis was found guilty:
