A married couple who own a travel business were charged with embezzlement after they allegedly accepted payment for booking international trips to Japan for San Diego high school band members and their parents, and then cancelled the trips. The company then filed for bankruptcy and the people were not offered refunds for the thousands of dollars they had spent.

Brad and Margie Matheson are the proprietors of a Georgia based travel service called Harmony International. In January 2016, they extended a package to four San Diego area high school’s band departments. The offer was for the school’s band members to take an international trip where parents could accompany their children to Japan.

Brad Matheson presented the offer in a Skype meeting telling parents and students, “If you register before March 1, 2016, for this group, you’ll receive free trip cancellation insurance.” He stated this offer was intended as an added incentive bonus in order to encourage early registration.

Death Metal band Decapitated is currently visiting the United States from Poland on their “Double Homicide” tour. A woman who attended their show at The Pin, a venue in downtown Spokane, WA, has accused the four members of the band of kidnapping and gang-raping her in the bathroom of their bus following the performance.

The day after the show the woman filed a report alleging that she entered the bus for drinks with Michal Mikolaj Lysejko, 27; Waclaw Jan Kieltyka, 35; Rafal Tomasz Piotrowski, 31; and Hubert Edward Wiecek, 30, where they each took a turn sexually assaulting her. Information regarding the alleged kidnapping has not been disclosed at this time.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigated the case at the request of the Spokane police. The band continued their tour for a month after the woman’s claims, when they were apprehended after their performance at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA.
