According to West Bend Police Lieutenant Rob Lloyd, “We’re investigating the death of a 38-year-old male; there’s no signs of trauma to the body and an autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.”
Roberts was in town on Friday as he was scheduled to make a guest appearance Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Rockin’ For Heroes concert at Our Place Sports Pub & Grill, 4721 Highway 33 in West Bend.
Roberts, a co-founder of the American rock band, had been over at the home of Nick Pari, lead singer of the band NIX.
Pari had put the concert together and brought in Roberts as a guest headliner to perform at a charity event with proceeds benefiting the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight.
