ALL THAT REMAINS Frontman Bemoans The Lack of Arrests In Oli Herbert Case
It has been over a year since the death of All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert still remains a mystery. Herbert passed away at 44 years old in October, by drowning in a lake behind his home that was "inches deep" according to The Hartford Currant's viewing of police records. The case is still unresolved, with police investigating the death as suspicious. People close to Oli have been searching for answers, with conspiracies being thrown around about possible causes of death. One of the points of contention by friends of Oli that were concerned about his death was the signing of his will a week before his death.
Oli's widow Elizabeth is currently engaged in a legal battle with the surviving members of All That Remains to get Oli's share of the profits. Herbert's estate was worth $70,000 at the time of his death, not including the property. This morning, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte took to Twitter to lament the lack of arrests in the investigation, painting a pretty clear picture of who he was talking about.
"CT state police arrested Jen Dulos' estranged husband and charged him with murder." Labonte tweeted. "They have not found a body. There’s been no arrest in the Oli Herbert case even though his body was in the pond behind his house and there was ONE person there when it happened.
In an interview last year, Labonte made it clear that the band did not get along with Herbert's widow calling her an "absolute garbage human being." When asked if he disliked Oli Herbert's wife, Labonte responded "Beth was never to be around… to be on tour. She would come to the local shows because, you know, we couldn't stop her. Everyone else in the band, you know, wives, girlfriends, whatever – they would come out on tour, stay for a few days, stay for a week, everybody got along."
When asked why she was not allowed, Labonte responds "We [the band] made the decision, and she wasn't allowed because she was a garbage human being. [laughs]."
When asked why they didn't get a divorce, Labonte responded "We tried to get him to get a divorce for a long time, I can't tell you exactly why he wouldn't do it or what the circumstances were surrounding his resistance. But I can say that I personally talked to him and said multiple times, look if you need a place to stay, I got plenty of room."
Police are still investigating the death and "are compiling a timeline of Herbert's last 24 hours, reviewing his medical history and searching for people who may have been in contact with him on or before Oct. 16, when his body was found in Hydeville Pond."
