Oli Sykes (Bring Me The Horizon) Makes Statement Over British Male Jailed For Kidnap/Attempted Murder

Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon has issued a statement regarding the man who posed online as him to lure a teenage girl to meet him, who has now been jailed for life by being convicted for kidnap and attempted murder.

"I woke up to the news in LA, and didn't really believe it at first. It's very unsettling. I'm aware that people have used my identity for pranks and whatever, which has always been something that's been uncomfortable for me, but for something like this to happen is terrifying. My heart goes out to Maricar and hope she recovers soon.

I would also urge anyone using social networking sites about a really great foundation called the Carly Ryan foundation. Carly suffered a fate worse even worse than this case but the story isn't worlds apart. The foundation was set up to raise awareness and educate people on the risks of meeting people online. Stay safe and be careful."
