Four Men Trespassed Onto the Spot Where Oli Herbert’s Body Was Found


The saga of All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert, who was found dead in a pond adjacent to his property last fall, continues to grow more bizarre.

While police continue to investigate “suspicious” circumstances surrounding Oli’s death — and after it was revealed that his home is facing foreclosure — his wife, Beth Herbert, has released a statement warning tresspassers not to come onto her property following an incident in which four men did exactly that. The statement, posted on Oli’s official Facebook page, reads:

“Hello everyone this is Beth.

“I can’t say anything about the investigation because it is still open.

“I am making this post today because something very disturbing happened yesterday; a group of four men trespassed onto my property to go poking around where Oli’s body was taken out of the pond. The police were called and a report was filed.

“I know that there has been a lot of talk about everything going on with the property and the estate. Without getting into too much personal estate/family information, whatever is happening with the estate and property it’s happening for a reason and under the guidance of attorneys. This house is still and will continue to be very much occupied and the family home. It is still considered private property and anybody who trespasses will be reported to the police and charges will be pressed for trespassing and disturbing the peace.

“As much as some people are presenting themselves to know what’s going on with this estate, they don’t. If there is something that needs to be said regarding this estate, that information will be made on this page. For the record, none of Oli’s property or equipment has been sold or given away. The guitars, his equipment, and all of his personal belongings are in a secure, undisclosed location. Everything is still in my possession and NOT for sale.

“Thank you all for your support during this difficult time.”

So bizarre. Why would Beth want to bring attention to this incident?

It’s the latest in a string of puzzling events on her part, including the announcement then quick cancelation of a public memorial to Oli and a strangely worded statement about his toxicology results. Meanwhile, a Facebook page alleging a conspiracy and cover-up surrounding Oli’s death continues to pick up momentum.
