Damageplan Shootings Update

Update on the tragic Damageplan shootings (click here for our complete coverage), which left five dead including metal guitar legend Dimebag Darrell Abbott, in a Columbus, Ohio rock club on December 8:

The Columbus Dispatch (not available online) reported today that Nathan Gale, the paranoid schizophrenic Pantera fanatic and killer of Dimebag Darrell and three others at the Alrosa Villa club, jumped on the stage during a Damageplan show in Cincinnati on April 5, 2004, causing about $1,800 in damage to lights and other equipment during a struggle with bouncers. The band continued playing during the episode and charges were not filed against Gale in Cincinnati because band members did not want to have to return to the city for subsequent court dates. Eight months later he would do much worse.

Why did it take four months for this information to come to light?
