 All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert died of drowning, his widow has confirmed.

Herbert was found dead on October 16 near his home in Connecticut. He was 44 years old.

According to TMZ, police were dispatched to Oli’s Stafford Springs residence after someone reported him missing. Cops searched the area and found Oli in a nearby pond.

Earlier today, Oli’s wife Beth released a statement via his official Facebook page in which she revealed that her husband drowned after apparently ingesting antidepressant medication and sleeping pills.

She wrote: “Good morning everyone this is Beth. And indeed it IS a good morning; Toxicology results are back as is the official cause of my husband’s death!

“Cause of death- Drowning. Toxicology- Oli was apparently self-treating for manic-depression that has run in his family for several generations. Anti-depressants were found in his system, as well as a sleep aid. The psych meds found in his system were the same ones that a close relative has been prescribed for a long time, so he knew what to hunt down for the ‘treatment’. Seeing how he was not going (and WOULDN’T GO) to a doctor to get diagnosed with the issue and was not being prescribed the medications and monitored on them, it explains his occasional erratic behavior here at home.

“If anybody knows where Oli was getting the psych meds, please call CT State Police, Troop C in Tolland, CT.”

In the comments section below her original post, Beth offered a possible explanation for how Oli ended up in the pond. “One of the drugs can have a hallucinogenic effect, also restlessness,” she wrote. “Oli kept wanting to go outside that night before he disappeared and he kept walking towards the pond, which is a pitch black part of our property as well as very slippery. Add to that fact that it was raining that evening. Apparently he left the house after I went to bed so I couldn’t stop him and bring him back inside.”

Herbert began playing guitar at 14. He co-founded Aall That Remains with frontman Phil Labonte in 1998.

All That Remains has released nine studio albums, a live CD/DVD, and has sold more than one million records worldwide. The band’s new LP, “Victim Of The New Disease”, arrived on November 9.
