A Case of Morder

Death-metal vocalist faces life for an alleged Christian hate crime

Cynthia Fausto, Shipley's 21-year-old girlfriend, agrees. She said her boyfriend's anti-Christian rantings published on the Internet were part of an effort to publicize his band. "Raymond is not a terrorist like the police say he is," Fausto said. "What he was trying to do with that interview was attract people who like that music. In the interview, he said he had been arrested for grave desecration. That was a bunch of lies. I would get mad when he lied to make himself seem worse than he was. He told me he was just trying to sell CDs and get famous."
