Artifact stolen from late Suicide Silence frontman Mitch Lucker’s grave [UPDATED]

Posted by on September 26, 2017

We write a lot about theft here, as musicians are sometimes sitting ducks for despicable people that might want to steal their gear or break into their vans while playing. However, stealing from a grave site is a new kind of low, and that’s what an alleged Suicide Silence “fan” did at a cemetery. 

This November marks five years since the death of Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker, who died tragically in a motorcycle accident. For a vicious unknown reason, someone decided to disrespect the dead by stealing personal items left at the late singer’s gravesite. On the one hand, a Suicide Silence fan has a one of a kind artifact that meant a lot to a member of the band and was given to him by someone that’s not around any more. On the other hand, they robbed a grave. Guitarist Mark Heylmun shared a message on his Instagram, asking whoever left the site with a necklace he placed on the headstone should kindly return it.

He stated:

Somebody took my necklace off Mitch’s headstone. To that person: I’m not mad, if you know me it’s super hard to make me mad. I choose not to get mad, I’m already “mad” enough in my head. I hope that necklace brings you some peace and joy. Here’s a little about it. A good friend of mine and Mitch’s gave it to me after a trip to Peru. We were there together but he stayed longer and brought it home to me. I wear it for many reasons, I’ve worn it on stage under my shirt, I’ve worn it during times where I need strength and positive energy, from hikes to interviews for the band. It’s a material symbol of inspiration and power to me. I thought about not posting anything about it but I am posting this because I want friends and family to be able to trust that we can leave things at this Sacrad place(anonymously!), and that it is also somewhere we seek strength and energy from. This is a place of trust and power for us. If we can’t TRUST that we can leave things here than it loses some of its power. We leave gifts offerings and sometimes we leave things to give and receive that power, like I left my necklace. So to that person: keep that necklace and cherish it or return it. No harm no foul. And to anyone who knows where Mitch is keep that site Sacrad please. Peace and love people.”

UPDATE: It turns out that it was Lucker’s daughter Kenadee that took the necklace. Heylmun reacted saying that the reason he wasn’t really mad was that whoever took it wanted it enough to take it, and he’s fine with Lucker’s daughter keeping it.
