According to the French newspapers Le Parisien and Le Dauphiné Libéré and Blabbermouth.net, acclaimed heavy metal cover artist Jean-Pascal “JP” Fournier was arrested on Thursday for allegedly killing his 80-year-old father, Jean-Paul Fournier, by disemboweling him and shooting an arrow in his head. The police apparently discovered Jean-Paul’s body on Wednesday after being alerted by relatives. The victim’s wife, an elderly and sick woman, was upstairs when the police arrived. One day after allegedly committing the murder, Jean-Pascal reportedly tried to commit suicide by jumping from a bridge into the Isère River in the town of Saint-Martin-d’Hères in the suburbs of Grenoble. The police were called, and the 47-year-old suspect, who was not injured, was immediately taken by investigators to the Grenoble police station where he was placed in police custody. Pascal is famous for album covers by bands such as Avantasia, Dragonforce, and Edguy.
