Justin Lowe, the former After the Burial guitarist, had been suffering from mental illness and went missing on Saturday.
Sadly, Lowe’s body was discovered by a hiker near the St. Croix River in Somerset, WI. Authorities believe the musician died from a fall. He was 32.
Justin had left the band following a paranoid Facebook rant while recording their album last month.
Lowe went off on a rant, claiming his reasons for leaving included a series of events involving the alleged sabotage of his computer, a set up that included the staging of a friend’s death, and allegations of drugs, abuse and sexual impropriety.
Here’s an interview with Justin from 2013:
Authorities say that the cause of death was consistent with a fall. His vehicle had been found at a parking lot on the Minnesota side of the bridge.
This is just so sad. Mental illness is no joke. Our condolences and thoughts go out to his family and bandmates.
