Originally posted on 22.07.2015: With the recent meltdown of Justin Lowe, guitarist of the American deathcore band After The Burial, Lowe has been found dead by the Arcola High Bridge near Somerset, Wisconsin. Justin Lowe was 32 years.

Scott Knudson, chief deputy of St. Croix County, states: "Foul play was not suspected, Knudson said, adding that the cause of death was consistent with a fall. Lowe's vehicle was found at a parking lot on the Minnesota side of the bridge, which Knudson said was the focus of a search on July 18. He said 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 search effort."

Not a big fan, but sorry to hear this.
This is a local news story for me, but none of the local news channels covered this story.
Now if it was some shit local rapper, hip hop or folk singer with dozens of fans the news would be all over it.
Minnesota sucks for metal!!!!!

it's the exact same in Canada dude; where healthcare is free... people place a taboo on it like it's contagious or something... It's like you either deal with it yourself or do what Justin did and be called weak. I believe being pushed to the limit like that is bullshit, and admitting you need help then not getting it is completely unacceptable to the health industry. I commend him for getting as far as he did in seeking help, and going out in a way where it affected the least amount of people. Not like some people who jump off a building giving dozens of people ptsd or suicide by cop...

Remember, though, we don't know if he had depression or bipolar, and nothing points there. I am not a psychologist, but from his episode, paranoid schizophrenia is the most likely, and those people don't just off themselves. They are not in control of themselves during "episodes" however, and they believe everyone's out to get them, so if not received proper care these people will often run off, while being unable to take care of themselves, which is usually the cause of death.

I obviously don't know what happened but I find it more likely he just ran away, then either got an accident or offed himself on impulse-decision, but I doubt he planned to commit suicide.

Couple of months ago we had a similiar case here in my hometown, some guy on medication, with similiar symptoms, ran away from home, and the entire town was looking for him for days/weeks until a jogger found him dead in some forested areas nearby, I think cause of death was malnutrition.

Awful thing. Such a talented, young dude. One of the few in the "djent" category that was worth a damn.
