The Des Moines Register reports Slipknot member Paul Gray was found dead in an Iowa hotel room on Monday morning (May 24), discovered by an employee of TownePlace Suites. The Urbandale Police Department found no signs of foul play. Gray was 38.
Gray and his wife, Brenna, were expecting a child, according to friends of the bassist. “Paul had a lot going for him, and a lot coming,” KAZR-FM (103.3) music director Andy Hall told the newspaper. “I know he was excited about being a dad. It makes an already extremely difficult situation more unthinkable.”
