(Newser) – An aspiring California "horrorcore" rapper who posted songs about killing on his MySpace page is being held as a suspect in the murder of four people, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Richard Samuel Alden McCroskey III, 20, was arrested as he awaited a flight back home from Virginia, where the bodies were discovered in the home of a Farmville professor. The victims were believed to be the professor, her husband, their daughter, and a teenage friend.

McCroskey's relationship with the victims was unclear, but a MySpace message from the daughter said she was "looking forward" to McCroskey's visit, police said. McCroskey calls himself "Syko Sam" on his MySpace page. "I've killed many people and I kill them real slow. It's the best feeling, watching their last breath. Stabbing and Stabbing til there's nothing left," he sings in one of his songs. A friend who owns Serial Killin Records called McCroskey a "great kid."
