An alleged murder-suicide in Washington, Pennsylvania apparently was rooted in an argument over Phish tickets, according to Pittsburgh’s CBS Local News. The report states that Nate Roman and Michael Marchines were fighting inside of Hungry Jose’s restaurant until 2:30 am, when sources say a fight broke out.
According to CBS, “Family members say they had heard the men may have been fighting over Phish concert tickets, and that Roman had recently purchased $3,000 dollars in Phish concert tickets.”
“My brother loved Phish. He went on tour with them every year, took his buddy Mike with him,” said Casey Roman. “He and Mike would go to Phish concerts, party it up. They had a good time, and that’s what he really lived for.” – via WTAE Pittsburgh
In the images associated in the news report, one the men is clearly wearing a Phish shirt. This is all speculation and unconfirmed, and as of right now the police have not released an official statement. They have recovered a surveillance video that may help shed light on the incident. More details as they become available.
