The 47 year old club kids co founder was charged for the murder and dismemberment of drug dealer Andre "Angel" Melendez on March 17,1996. Alig spent a long seventeen years in the New York prison. He was eligible for parole since 2007, but was denied till now.

In 2003, Macaulay Culkin played Alig in a film titled as 'Party Monster', and the movie portrayed the the story of Alig's spiral into drug addiction, which ended in Melendez's murder following an argument over a drug debt. The film also marked the first adult role of Macauly Culkin.

“There is no chance that he will return to clubs as a way of life, but he will paint and write, and as always, try to impact the way we think. I believe he has been rehabilitated”, says Lewis, an old friend of Alig.
