It’s with great sadness that I pass along the tragic news of Eric Bloodstorm’s sudden passing from an apparent heart attack in the early morning hours of December 3, 2012. Eric was a resident of Portland, Oregon and a long-time and well respected vampire and BDSM community member. Many of you probably knew him from Portland’s Vampire Masquerade Ball, the Portland Vampire Meetup Group, his membership in Voices of the Vampire Community (VVC), The Dark Nations, and his involvement with his local bondage and fetish community. A PayPal account has been established to help his family with final arrangements and a benefit is being planned later in December. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts during this difficult time. You touched so many lives Eric; you will be missed!
