Late last month, After The Burial guitarist Justin Lowe posted at length, via Facebook, regarding his concerns about an alleged conspiracy involving his band and label, Sumerian Records, with him at the middle of it all. He claimed to be in danger and ranted about several situations that seemed nonsensical and outrageous to many. There were several friends and fans, however, who showed concern for Lowe's mental state. The other members of After The Burial shared their thoughts and concerns as well.
Lambgoat is now reporting that things have possibly taken a turn for the worse as Lowe's sister has shared the following online:
“My brother Justin went missing this morning. His car has been located and he has been declared a missing person. An extensive search was done today in the area that his car was found in and will continue tomorrow morning. At this time, I ask that you please respect our privacy as we go through this devastating experience. At the same time, we ask for prayers that he is found and safe. As I’m sure there will be many of you messaging me, please know that I am reading them and appreciating your concern, but may not reply. I will continue to post updates as I have them. At this time, the authorities have not asked for the public’s assistance in searching. The area is unsafe and they have every park ranger and sherif assisting in the search. If that changes, I will let everyone know.”
She later updated with:
“The search has been completed for today. The ground around the area his car was found has been searched completely. [We] went and walked the trails and along the shore of the St. Croix today, but did not find any sign of him. All search efforts tomorrow will be in the river. We are very impressed with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Park Rangers who have coordinated the search efforts. They are working day and night to find my brother. Thank you to everyone for their prayers.”
We at AP certainly hope for the best outcome in this situation. Hopefully Justin is found safe and sound as soon as possible and can be given the help he needs.
