About a month ago, in mid-December, 61-year-old Alice “Alyx” Kamakaokalani Herrmann mysteriously disappeared. Since 12 December, they have been searching diligently for the woman, but not until now have they found an answer.
Now Theobald “Theo” Lengyel, one of the founders of the band Mr. Bungle, has been arrested for the murder of the woman – who was his girlfriend.
The arrest occurred after the body of the missing woman was found in the Californian woods near Lengyel’s home. This is reported by several media outlets, including the New York Post.
Lengyels was given early status as a suspect in the case, because he refused to cooperate with the police in the search for his girlfriend. The police say in a statement that it became clear early on that something criminal had happened.
– The investigation led investigators to find human remains in the wooded area of Tilden Regional Park in Berkeley, Capitola police say in a press release.
Herrmann’s car is said to have been parked outside Lengyel’s home in Berkeley.
The police do not currently want to give details about how the woman was killed. They also do not want to state any motive for the murder.
Lengyel is now charged with premeditated murder, without the possibility of bail. In addition, he is charged with burglary and car theft.
Lengyel is best known for playing in the experimental band Mr. Bungle in the 1980s. He left the band in the mid-1990s, due to disagreements among the members.
