ARRESTS MADE IN BRYAN HARVEY SLAYINGS

Police have arrested two been in connection with the killings of House of Freaks frontman Bryan Harvey and his family -- as well as another terrible crime in which three members of another family were killed in their home in Richmond.

Not many details yet. The suspects' names are Ray Joseph Dandridge and Ricky Gevon Gray. The motive in both sets of killings is said to be robbery.

Here's the Richmond Times Dispatch story and here's the story from a t.v. station in Philadelia, where the suspects were caught.

Last night while playing my House of Freaks tribute on The Santa Fe Opry, I gave myself the creeps by playing a song called "Ten More Minutes to Live," Bryan Harvey's black-humor contemplation of the last minutes of his life.

But I stumbled across a story of later House of Freaks song, one I wasn't aware of called "Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey," that seems to describe a murder in a basement. CLICK HERE .
