Czech police have finished their investigation into the death of 19-year old Daniel Nosek, who died after sustaining injuries at a Lamb Of God concert in Prague in 2010. LoG singer Randy Blythe was arrested earlier this year on manslaughter charges and was held in Czech jail for a month and a half. He was ultimately released on bail and made a statement in which he said he will return, if needed, for a trial.

In the final investigation report, Czech police have recommended that Blythe be indicted and return to Prague to stand trial. According to INDES.cz, Prague City Prosecutor’s Office Štěpánka Zenklová stated that this decision will be made “…by the end of November,” after the team has had time to review the case and the facts.

In an interview after his release, Blythe stated, “I feel ethically responsible to go back there and face this charge. [The victim’s] family right now is in a lot of pain, and they deserve some answers. To lose a child is the worst possible thing a human can go through, I think .. I want my name cleared. I have to go around the world and tour, you know. That’s what I do. I’m not going to hide here. I’m an innocent man. I’m going to go to court and see what happens.

Once again, this issue may interfere with Lamb Of God touring plans as the band will be on the road in December alongside In Flames and Sylosis.

    “I want my name cleared. I have to go around the world and tour, you know. That’s what I do. I’m not going to hide here. I’m an innocent man. I’m going to go to court and see what happens.” This dude is a buttplug if he goes back over there.He should be grateful his lawyer got his hillbilly ass outta jail and back home in the states.What a dumbass!

    Well the Czech republic must not want another entertainer to ever perform there. Would you go after this? I seen the video, randy did push the kid back into the crowd but not hard and if you have ever been to a concert you see this happen 20 times or more a night. Its a tragedy the kid died, now their court system is a tragedy as well

      It’s still not the court system. The police finished there investigation and SOMETHING led them to believe that Blythe should be indicted. The prosecution still has to decide if they want to pursue charges or not. If they do, THEN it goes to the Czech court system.
      As for wanting performers to come back or not, it’s definitely going to change the dynamics a great deal. At the very least, contracts with security will likely be very much looked at and amended.
