Just over a year since he passed away under mysterious circumstances, police are still investigating the death of All That Remains guitarist Oliver “Oli” Herbert. In the meantime, his wife Elizabeth Herbert is involved in a legal battle with the remaining members of All That Remains for a share of the band’s profits.
Elizabeth Herbert’s attorney has filed a letter in probate court indicating that the band has refused to turn over financial information that she needs to file an inventory of her husband’s estate with the court. The letter also claims that she is owed money from tours All That Remains completed shortly after his death since she now controls his portion of the band’s ownership.
Oli was found dead on October 16th, 2018 at the edge of a pond on his Stafford Springs, Connecticut property. He was reported missing by his wife about 3:00 p.m., and his body was found by police face down at the edge of the pond where the water was only a few inches deep.
The Connecticut State Police Eastern District Crime Squad is investigating Herbert’s death, which is being treated as suspicious. They are looking at the will he signed a week before his death as well as a life insurance policy mentioned in the will. The will names Elizabeth Herbert as executor and sole benefactor and states that Oli’s sister, Cynthia Herbert, should not receive anything from his estate.
State police have seized Elizabeth Herbert’s computer and phone records as part of their investigation. The widow claims that a toxicology report showed that her 44-year-old husband had anti-depressants in his system before he died.
Last year, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte called Elizabeth Herbert a “garbage human being” who was “never allowed” to join the band on tour. According to the singer, he tried unsuccessfully to convince Oli to get a divorce for a long time. Labonte refused to share his opinion on how his bandmate died.
