On October 16th, 44-year old Oli Herbert, the lead guitarist of ‘All That Remains’ was found dead in a pond abutting his property in Stafford Springs, CT, apparently drowned. This story is crazy, and has definitely left me saying, “hmmm”. And it looks like I’m definitely not the only one, as Connecticut State Police are now treating his death as suspicious.
There’s definitely a lot of dots to connect here, and it’s pretty compelling stuff. There’s a lot of speculation going on online right now, but only one theory popping up –
The now widowed wife, Beth Herbert.
There’s a lot of information bouncing around at there right now, but this is what we know for sure:
- Oli Herbert married his wife, Beth Herbert, on August 15th, 2004. 14 years, 2 months and 1 day later, his body was found in Hydeville Pond, steps from his house.
- Oli and Beth had been having marital problems and Oli was preparing for divorce.
- Oli’s friends and family describe Beth as extremely jealous, controlling and volatile towards her husband.
- Beth was close friends with Wendy Skriver, a well known stalker/groupie of Oli Herberts, who once had a very public meltdown when she felt unacknowledged at one of his shows. Her presence, and friendship with Beth, seems to permeate this case.
- Oli and Beth’s home had recently gone into foreclosure, and Beth seemed pretty staunchly intent on the house.
- Beth has been acting pretty fucking weird online in the month since Oli’s passing.
- A toxicology report found anti depressants in Oli’s system – Oli was 44 years old and not known to drink, do drugs or suffer from depression. He was not seeing a doctor for depression and had no active prescriptions for anti-depressants.
- Oli’s friends and bandmates are utterly convinced that foul play was involved, and are heavily implicating his wife. They’ve started a Facebook Page, Justice For Oli Herbert , and Oli’s widow, Beth Herbert, is not particularly pleased about it.
I don’t think anyone would be thrilled with being openly accused of having a hand in their husbands murder, though, to be fair.
Beth and Oli had a pretty tumultuous and volatile relationship, marked by jealousy and rage.
Yeah. it’s not the healthiest sign when your husband maintains a burner phone just to stay in contact with friends and family. Doesn’t make for the happiest of homes.
Beth was, by all accounts, a very jealous, insecure and controlling partner, who also would regularly use the phones she stole to threaten, harass and insult anyone she objected to her husband speaking to.
She seems nice. Huge hit at parties, I’m sure.
And in the months leading up to his death, Oli seems to have had enough, and was preparing to file for divorce –
Reportedly, much to his wife’s chagrin.
It only gets shadier from here.
Oli and Beth’s Stafford Springs home went into pre-foreclosure on or about September 13, 2018. They owed the bank $15,000 to get the house out of foreclosure, and according to his friends, Oli was planning on just cutting his losses, letting the house go, and moving on. Which may, or may not, be why he didn’t show up to court to fight the foreclosure – just about a month before his death.
What’s also pretty strange, is Beth’s close friendship with this chick, Wendy Skriver.
Wendy was described by friends and family as Oli’s “stalker”. She would often pop up at the same places as Oli, almost as if she was following him. On March 31st of 2018, at the Hard Rock Cafe Foxwoods, Wendy had a very public meltdown after feeling “ignored” by Oli, at a video release party with roughly 300 attendees, who all witnessed it. Strangely, the reportedly possessive and jealous Beth didn’t threaten, harass or assault Wendy – she struck up a close relationship, even attending Wendy’s daughter’s graduation.
Weird. There’s a whole lot of Wendy involved with this, too. Check it out. June 27th, 2018 – roughly 3 months before Oli’s death, the couple is served notice of the bank’s intention to foreclose on their home.
About a month later, and roughly two months before his death, Beth decides to clear out the brush in the yard of their imminently foreclosing home that was obstructing a path to the pond Oli’s body was discovered in,
And look who helped.
But people do yard work all the time. Maybe less so on a house that they know the bank is coming to repossess, but who knows.
And around the same time that Beth and Wendy started doing some landscaping by the pond, something else weird and tragic happened. Beth posted two separate statuses pointing out the delicious people snacks she was feeding to her and Oli’s two dogs,
And then tragically, they died. Both of dogs. Within a week, and a little over a month before her husband’s death.
It’s definitely strange, although, this woman may have just been having a bad month.
This is where is really gets crazy, though. A mere week before Oli’s death, Beth went and redid his will and power of attorney. And who was the notary public?
……Wendy Shriver. This was purportedly signed by Beth and Ollie at the car dealership where Wendy’s works, with 2 of Wendy’s coworkers as witnesses, one of whom cannot definitively verify if he even saw Oli that day. I’m no Scruff Mcgruff, but even I have to admit – there is something kind of weird about redoing your will at 44 years old at a car dealership a week before your death, with a woman who your inner circle refers to as your “stalker” in the middle of the contentious dissolution of your 14 year marriage.
The timing could’ve been better. Or maybe it couldn’t, depending on your opinion on what happened to Oli Herbert.
Wendy was at the scene when the police showed up, and has been by Beth’s side ever since.
Weird. Thanks for clearing that up, Wendy? Who knows. Again, seeing as these two are being publicly implicated, it’s possible that they just felt the need to address it.
But Beth sure posted some weird shit on the day of her husband’s death.
….And in it’s wake.
That’s some strange looking grief.
Here at Turtleboy we aren’t the state police, so my speculation in this is irrelevant. One thing is clear, though, this is hella shady, and the police clearly agree. I have more information to sift through than I want to cram into one blog, though – so I’m going to go ahead and call this one as a multi-part series. Stay tuned, Turtle Riders.
