Like Remy White, Kyp Malkmus was involved in the Hammet cult as a result of his childhood friend Brandon Smith. Smith introduced Kyp to Edgar Hammet, and despite by all accounts being a kind hearted and soft-spoken individual, Kyp succumbed to what he described as “the energy” surrounding the rituals the cult performed, and involved himself.
Dolefully Kyp now resides in a psychiatric ward. He has been on “suicide watch” since being admitted. Malkmus claims full responsibility for his actions and continually expresses regret.
Recently Kyp was granted limited Twitter access, he set up an account and can be followed at @KypMalkmus
