This is almost stranger than fiction. I shall bold why.

Korn fan murdered

A Korn fan was murdered at a show in America on Sunday evening.

Andy Richardson was assaulted and hospitalized after the attack, which happened in the mosh pit during a show in Atlanta, on the group's Family Values Tour. Richardson, 30, remains on a life support machine but was actually declared brain-dead yesterday afternoon.

Police are now expected to launch a murder investigation into the attack, which was carried out by two currently unknown men.

Richardson is understood to have spoken to his assailants during the show, because he was concerned they may collide with his pregnant girlfriend and a mentally impaired child with them.

A friend of Richardson's, Edgar Arellano, told MTV he saw one of the men punch him and watched as he fell face-first onto the concrete floor. "He was unconscious. He had blood all over his face when I picked him up," said Arellano.

The victim's mother, Gloria Richardson, said: "Can you imagine your child goes to a concert and be killed for it, because of people out there fighting to have a quote-unquote good time?"

It's unfortunate that the guy is now brain-dead, but what was he doing bringing a pregnant woman and their "mentally impaired" child with him when mosh pits are known to be needlessly violent areas?

All the concerts ive been to have a area in the back were people can sit back and watch the show without being in the pit, if he was so concerned about his wife and child, he should have been there..

I have been stuck in/near the mosh pit before and either ended up moving back (because pits usually piss me off) or stuck it out as the wall. I've only had to do the latter once and that was because I was seeing my boyfriend's friend's band and the area was so small (it was the Roxy on Sunset) that there was nothing, but the pit.

The most violent one I've seen was at an outdoor Bad Religion concert. People were walking by with their faces gashed open like it was nothing.

Concerts are for listening to music. Nothing more.

I would rather go to a classical music concert than a rock concert any day.

Why would you be in a mosh pit if you were pregnant? It really doesn't make sense. Especially at a Korn concert.

Anyone else notice the blaring irony of the name of the tour?

...I know, I'm deranged.
