UPDATE (Sept. 17): More news from yesterday’s courtroom proceedings, as investigators have revealed they found steroids in the home of Lambesis.

Homicide investigators found a lock box in Lambesis’ Carlsbad home containing “a lot of different quantities” of male enhancement-type drugs, male libido-type drugs and estrogen blocking drugs, Det. John Buckley with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department testified.

There were approximately 30 to 40 vials along with different types of pill packages with more than $12,000 in cash, the detective said.

It’s not a huge surprise as the defense was almost guaranteed to use the steroids as the cause of his irrational behavior. Updated news from a report filed by the San Diego NBC affiliate today.

 

In very recent news, Tim Lambesis, vocalist for As I Lay Dying, will stand trial for the alleged murder plot he orchestrated against his estranged wife Meggan, UT San Diego journalist Dana Littlefield reports.

He will be formally read the charges against him on Oct. 22. If you’re interested, you can watch the courtroom footage below.
