Arrest and death

In 2005, soon after wrapping Shot, Avery was arrested for a double homicide and sentenced to life in prison. On the evening of September 4, 2005, Avery was killed in his cell in Pelican Bay State Prison. He was struck on the head and strangled by Kevin Roby, his Satan-worshiping cellmate. Despite 11 inmate counts overall, including standing counts, Lloyd´s body was not discovered until Roby laid his corpse on a pentagram he had drawn on the cell floor with blood from Lloyds lifeless body and performed a satanic ritual over it on September 6.
