Slipknot Bassist Died Of Morphine Overdose
Paul Gray's autopsy results, released Monday, show that Slipknot's heavy metal bassist died of an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl, a synthetic morphine substitute, police said Monday.
Gray, 38, was found dead in a hotel room in Des Moines on May 25 by a
hotel worker. Later, the worker told a 911 dispatcher that aside from
pills in the room, he also found a
hypodermic needle near Gray's body.
The autopsy revealed signs of significant heart disease.
