After The Burial Rocker Justin Lowe Was Found Dead On Tuesday (21jul15), Days After He Was Reported Missing.
A hiker found the 32-year-old guitarist's body underneath the Arcola High Bridge in Minnesota, and according to St. Croix County Chief Deputy Scott Knudson, Lowe's empty vehicle was found at a parking lot on the Minnesota side of the bridge.
Lowe announced his departure from After the Burial in a disturbing Facebook post last month (Jun15), ranting about a conspiracy against him, the sabotage of his computer, allegations of drugs, abuse and cheating, and his belief he had been accused of staging a friend's death.
His bandmates did not release a statement immediately following Lowe's rant, but later revealed he was missing, and feared a public statement would hinder an official search.
Lowe eventually returned, but over the weekend (ends19Jul15), his sister took to Facebook asking for help after he went missing again.
A search for Lowe commenced on Saturday (18Jul15), and Knudson says authorities from St. Croix and Washington counties, along with members of the U.S. Coast Guard and National Parks services, were all deployed in the hunt for the rocker.
Lowe was one of the founding members of the metalcore band in 2004.
