All That Remains announced Wednesday morning that guitarist Oli Herbert died at the age of 44. Herbert’s widow, Beth, took to his Facebook page to thank fans for the kind words.

“Hello everyone this is Beth, Oli’s widow. Thank you all for the kind thoughts and words. I don’t want to go into what happened until we have a complete picture, but as soon as we do there will be a statement from the family on this page. In the meantime, please respect our privacy as there are still relatives being informed of Oli’s passing. Thank you.”



She also stated that no details are currently available and that a formal statement will be released within the next few days.

However, Billboard is reporting that Herbert was found dead in a pond near his Connecticut home Tuesday around 5 p.m. Connecticut State Trooper spokesperson Tanya Compagnone stated he was reported missing, which led to officers searching the area.

Officials state nothing appears suspicious about his death, and an autopsy to determine the cause is scheduled for Wednesday.
