It was discovered on Sunday that Gord Lewis had been slain by his own son at his Hamilton, Ontario home.
Hamilton police have arrested and accused the rocker’s 41-year-old son, Jonathan Lewis, of second-degree murder as they continue to investigate the case.
An “isolated” event involving a co-founder of the punk rock band Teenage Head was discovered by police over the weekend, according to the Hamilton Spectator. He was 65 years old.
In a press conference Monday, Detective Sara Beck of the Hamilton Police Department stated that no other suspects had been identified.
The victim had “injuries consistent with foul play,” according to Beck.
In addition, she said, “We are looking for witnesses and analyzing footage in the vicinity.”
According to authorities, they are confident in their ability to identify a deceased person, despite the fact that “a positive identification has not been made owing to decomposition.”
As his bandmates paid their respects, Gord’s death was confirmed by the band on Monday.
We are still struggling to come to terms with the loss of our dear friend and bandmate Gord Lewis,” the band’s surviving members wrote in a statement.
The people who knew and loved him are in our thoughts and prayers.” In the eyes of many, Gord was an inspiration and a force to be reckoned with. “You were taken away from us too soon,” we say.
Lewis was a founding member of the punk rock band Teenage Head, along with Frankie Venom, Dave Desroches, and drummer Frankie Venom, in 1975. The band played all across the country before becoming internationally famous.
“Let’s Shake” and “Some Kinda Fun” are two of Teenage Head’s best-known tracks.
The loss of the rocker is not the first in the band’s history; Venom passed away in 2008 after a long fight with throat cancer.
