Slipknot bassist, Paul Gray was reportedly been found in a hotel room in Iowa today. Gray was found six hours ago at a Marriott. He and his wife were expecting a daughter soon.

Police said there was no evidence of foul play observed, but a complete investigation of the untimely death of Paul Gray will be completed by Urbandale police detectives.

The Polk County Medical Examiner’s Office is assisting in the death investigation and will perform an autopsy on Tuesday. Toxicology testing will be completed to determine if there were any contributing factors in the death of Gray, police said.

Witnesses reported that items from the hotel room were carried out of the hotel around 2 p.m.

Paul Gray, the bassist for US metal band SLIPKNOT died last month of an accidental overdose, an autopsy has revealed.

Toxicology tests showed a fatal level of morphine and fentanyl, a synthetic morphine substitute, in his blood. Police said there was no evidence of a prescription for either drug.

His body was found by an employee at a hotel in Des Moines, Iowa on May 24th.

The autopsy also revealed signs of significant heart disease, police in Urbandale, a Des Moines suburb, said.

A spokesman for the Urbandale police said they were trying to find out how Gray obtained the drugs.

The spokesman said charges were possible.

Just as I suspected "Accidental overdose" the old 'accidental' suicide perhaps?
