Aranda drummer – Michael Walker and his wife were murdered by their own teenage son early Monday morning. The report reveals that 19-year-old Elijah Walker was arrested on two counts of first-degree murder after his 17-year-old brother allegedly called police after hearing gunshots at around 2am.
The Aranda band posted a tribute to their drummer, on their Facebook profile:
“Today we lost our band mate, our brother, and our best friend. For over 15 years Mike Walker toured the country with us impacting countless lives everywhere he went. His sense of humor was endearing. He made everything from playing drums to making people fall in love with him effortless. He was so easy going but for those that knew him well there was an intense spiritual depth behind the man. We will miss his laughter and his insatiable appetite for all “band cuisine.” Most of all we will miss his beautiful spirit. We will be in continuous prayer for his family and loved ones. May he and his beautiful wife Rachael rest in peace. Love you forever.”
