The news comes less than a week after a planned public memorial was canceled.
One month after All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert died under unexplained circumstances at age 44, police in Connecticut are still investigating the manner of his passing. The Hartford Courant reported on Friday (Nov. 16) that unnamed state police sources said they are treating Herbert's death as "suspicious" at this point, with the Eastern District Crime Squad still investigating the case.
A spokesperson for the Squad confirmed to Billboard that the case is still open and that there was no additional information available at press time and no person of interest or suspicious activity to report. "We are still following leads," the spokesperson tells Billboard. Herbert was found drowned in a pond behind his Stafford Springs, Connecticut, home on Oct. 16.
According to the Courant, the state Chief Medical Examiner Dr. James Gill ruled this week that Herbert drowned, calling the manner of death "undetermined;" manner of death is typically listed as homicide, suicide or accident, but Gill's office reportedly said the case will remain undetermined unless new information emerges. A spokesperson for Dr. Gill's office tells Billboard that toxicology results are not publicly released and that no manner of death has officially been announced.
