Unfortunately, the outcome we feared has become a reality as After The Burial guitarist Justin Lowe, 32, has been found dead near Somerset, Wisconsin, roughly 30 miles from where he was recently reported missing. This all follows unsettling statements from Lowe regarding conspiracies he claimed to be true involving his band, After The Burial, and label, Sumerian Records.

Lowe's body was reportedly found by a hiker beneath the Arcola High Bridge in the Twin Cities metro area not far from where his vehicle was discovered earlier this week. Authorities have stated that the cause of death is consistent with a fall and that foul play is not suspected. 

Our condolences go out to Lowe's family, friends and fans.
