Late All That Remains Guitarist Oli Herbert Signed A Will That Left His Wife As The Sole Executor And Benefactor A Week Before His Death

According to The Hartford Courant police are now investigating a will that was signed by late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert a week before his death. As previously reported, the musician’s body was found in a pond near his Stafford Springs, CT home on October 16, 2018 and his death is being investigated as suspicious.

The 11-page will was notarized by a friend of Oli and his widow Beth at a local car dealership on October 9. The friend worked at the dealership and one of their co-workers served as a witness.

The will and a life insurance policy, which is also being looked at, name Beth as the sole executor and benefactor. It also allegedly says she will be entitled to all property and current and future earnings. The will was filed in probate court in late December, although the site does mention that “there is no attorney signature on it or any indication that it was reviewed by any legal representatives.”

The report goes on to say Beth was originally cooperating with the police on the investigation but has since directed questions to her attorney Anthony Spinella.

This news comes after Beth recently issued a statement warning trespassers to stay away from the property and after it was revealed that the home was in foreclosure at the time of Herbert’s death.

Beth previously said he died from drowning and that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. However, the medical examiner’s office said the manner of death is still “undetermined.”

Fans and friends have long thought his death was suspicious and have been sharing evidence on a Justice For Oli Herbert Facebook page.

Late All That Remains Guitarist Oli Herbert’s Widow Issues Statement Warning Trespassers To Stay Away From Property

Four men were found sneaking around the Stafford Springs, CT home of late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert. The police were called and his widow Beth has now issued a statement warning trespassers to stay away.

Beth said the following:

“Hello everyone this is Beth.

I can’t say anything about the investigation because it is still open.

I am making this post today because something very disturbing happened yesterday; a group of four men trespassed onto my property to go poking around where Oli’s body was taken out of the pond. The police were called and a report was filed.

I know that there has been a lot of talk about everything going on with the property and the estate. Without getting into too much personal estate/family information, whatever is happening with the estate and property it’s happening for a reason and under the guidance of attorneys. This house is still and will continue to be very much occupied and the family home. It is still considered private property and anybody who trespasses will be reported to the police and charges will be pressed for trespassing and disturbing the peace.

As much as some people are presenting themselves to know what’s going on with this estate, they don’t. If there is something that needs to be said regarding this estate, that information will be made on this page. For the record, none of Oli’s property or equipment has been sold or given away. The guitars, his equipment, and all of his personal belongings are in a secure, undisclosed location. Everything is still in my possession and NOT for sale.

Thank you all for your support during this difficult time.”

This news comes after it was recently revealed that the home was in foreclosure at the time of Herbert’s death.

The musician’s body was found in a pond near the house on October 16, 2018 and his death is being investigated as suspicious.

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte On Oli Herbert’s Death: “I Was Shocked”

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte opened up about the tragic death of guitarist Oli Herbert. He said that “it was a big shock” and that the band are “still processing it.”

Labonte said the following:

“I was shocked. He was 44 years old, and he wasn’t really a big partier. He would go hang out with people and stuff, but he didn’t really do a lot of drinking… He didn’t do drugs, he didn’t really drink a lot. He would smoke pot once in a while, but that was the extent of it. And so, yeah, it was a big shock. And we’re still processing it and trying to figure out how it is that we move forward and what that means and stuff. So… it sucks.”

He also added the following about the band’s decision to continue:

“We’re gonna continue on. The band is not gonna end. It’s gonna be different and it’s gonna be weird. We’ve got someone that’s filling in for this European trip that we’ve got coming up at the end of the month.

And he is the guy that Oli would have wanted to fill in, to replace him. And then we’ll start looking for a full-time replacement, I assume, shortly. ‘Cause we’ve got stuff that we wanna do next year.

We don’t wanna let the [new] record be pushed aside. Oli would have wanted us to play the songs. He was excited about the way the record sounded and he was excited about a lot of the stuff on it, so he wouldn’t want us to stop.

So we’ve just gotta figure out what that actually looks like and how we do that.”

Herbert’s body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT on October 16 and his widow Beth has confirmed that his death was the result of drowning. She also added that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. All That Remains have since recruited Jason Richardson (ex-Born Of Osiris/Chelsea Grin) to fill-in.

Cause Of Death Revealed For Late All That Remains Guitarist Oli Herbert

Late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert’s widow Beth has confirmed that his death was the result of drowning. She also added that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. Herbert’s body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT on October 16. He was only 44 years old.

Beth said the following on Facebook:

“Good morning everyone this is Beth. And indeed it IS a good morning; Toxicology results are back as is the official cause of my husband’s death!

Cause of death- Drowning
Toxicology- Oli was apparently self-treating for manic-depression that has run in his family for several generations. Anti-depressants were found in his system, as well as a sleep aid. The psych meds found in his system were the same ones that a close relative has been prescribed for a long time, so he knew what to hunt down for the “treatment”.

Seeing how he was not going (and WOULDN’T GO) to a doctor to get diagnosed with the issue and was not being prescribed the medications and monitored on them, it explains his occasional erratic behavior here at home.

As far as why the memorial was cancelled; concern for my personal safety and home due to numerous threats to both is the reason.

If anybody knows where Oli was getting the psych meds, please call CT State Police, Troop C in Tolland, CT.”

She also added the following in the comments:

“One of the drugs can have a hallucinogenic effect, also restlessness. Oli kept wanting to go outside that night before he disappeared and he kept walking towards the pond, which is a pitch black part of our property as well as very slippery.. Add to that fact that it was raining that evening. Apparently he left the house after I went to bed so I couldn’t stop him and bring him back inside.”
