Cause Of Death For Slipknot's Paul Gray Still Unknown

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteR.I.P.

Guess we know where this is headed.

On Monday,Slipknot star Paul Gray was found dead at a Iowa hotel, but this morning, police are still baffled as to what caused his death. An autopsy was performed on the body, yet there was no new information to obtain from it.

Now, police are waiting on the toxicology report, which takes about a month, to determine the cause of death.

Though the cause of death could not be determined, Police were able to rule out any foul play or trauma to Paul and determined that Gray had been dead for several hours when his body was finally discovered by a hotel staff member.


Again, our condolences go out to his family and friends in this difficult time.

Check out the clip above to watch a press conference with the band members remembering Paul.

    Let me give you a hint! It starts with a D_ _ _ _ Can you guess it!

    Here in Iowa we dont care for your type delving out fake ass sympathy. So you just stay in your little fake world and shut the HELL up you fat trouble searching pig

    This is not a picture of Paul Grey-it's Mick Thomson-Paul was number #2-RIP

  4. 4

    That's not even a picture of Paul Gray, that's Mick Thompson, FYI.

  5. 5

    RIP Paul Gray.

  6. 6

    you do know that's not even the right band member in the photo, right?

  7. 7

    used to work in a hotel - finding a dead guy would be traumatizing…….

    Re: Prince Von A Hole – How about take the words as kind words and not resort to the same type of bullshit that everyone else succumbs to. I too am from Iowa… and appreciate that he wishes the best to friends & family. Calling people names (whether you like them or not) is not solving anything…

    And Shootingstar… Speculations can be kept private until the results are out.

    that's not a picture of paul gray…

    Is this a photo of the right person? I think he had a different mask.

  12. 12

    Re: stef_4 – yeah, seriously. faux sympathy.

  13. 13

    Uhhhh, that's Mick Thompson; NOT Paul Gray. But may he RIP. He will be missed greatly.

  14. Phox says – reply to this


    Atleast get the right Picture up,even for those who dont know what he looks like it CLEARLY says SEVEN on his arm . 30 seconds of internet research and you could have found out Paul is number two, and this is Mick….

  15. Phox says – reply to this


    oh, also, he played bass, and this is Clearly NOT a bass guitar….

  16. 16

    I watched the press conference and cried. I never get emotional over famous people but this is a different story since I listened to them from the start.

    RIP Paul, you'll be greatly missed by everyone.

  17. 17

    You know what, it's totally cool that some one outside of the Hollywood scene is getting some coverage on your site, but the guy died. Paul Gray is dead, and you need to show some respect for a person who was an amazing musician (a real one, not someone who doesn't even write their own shit, like the people you worship).

  18. 18

    Well, they never did announce what happened to The Rev from Avenged Sevenfold. His management did an excellent job of keeping any peep of what happened to him under wraps. Did anybody else ever hear anything about him?

  19. 19

    Re: kaddict – Exactly!

  20. 20

    Re: kaddict – Totally agree. We don't know how he died, and until the tests are finished it's all petty hearsay and assumptions. And what's worst, is that most of those people talking, they don't even know who he is.

  21. 21

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WONDERING WHAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT — the photo that was posted here originally was a photo of Mick, not Paul. Perez replaced it with the press conference video.

    Re: BrookeR – AGREED.

  23. 23

    You know what happens when you assume, P … you make an ass of yourself.
    You've already pissed people off.

    As for Paul's sake, RIP. Best wises to his family, friends, and loved ones.

    Respect, people… not a hard thing to do.

  24. 24

    Re: BrookeR – mario's condolences are fake, forced and an attempt at attention………

  25. 25

    R.I.P Paul… been a fan for many many years…

  26. 26

    Holding a press conference the DAY AFTER your band mate/husband DIES….? Desperate move to sell some shiz. Do you have any idea how much it takes to coordinate a PRESS CONFERENCE??? Is that your priority the DAY HE DIES??? FILTHY, horrible douche move… also DON'T take up actig Slipknot dudes - you suck.

  27. 27

    RIP Paul! You are in the arms of the angels and may you find some comfort there. Prayers to his family.

  28. 28

    RIP… Paul Grey was a genious. I can't believe some of his devoted fans would rather come on to this website and talk shit to the commenters on Perez. Are you serious? Go put on an early album, and just listen for about 2 hours, guarantee you wont have a nasty thing to say to anyone after, if you are a true fan.

    Re: Elilan

    This wasn't done for the national news…these guys are a huge deal in Iowa, and naturally people were probably asking them all kinds of 'how do you feel' questions…better to get out there, answer the press, and be done with it than hole up & have the vultures fuck with you for the next month. I thought it was nice to see the guys pull together, not only for each other, but also for Paul's wife. Go with God, Paul brother….

    Oh, and go fuck yourself, you heartless piece of shit Elilan.

  30. 30

    You will be missed and mourned. Whatever the reason for his passing, it's still sad to leave the loved ones behind. So sad :(

  31. 31

    *Paul grAy … not grEy. Sorry for the typo! RIP

  32. 32

    Very sad, Mick can't even speak. Rip Paul Gray.

  33. 33

    Re: Prince Von A Hole – It might be fake sympathy but it's better than him being a dick hole about everything. He could have acted way worse about it.. but didn't. At least this useless pig knows how to keep his mouth shut when he's supposed to, if he knows what's good for him.

  34. 34

    wow yea man it sucks when a band loses a member that had a good essence to the band to make music Rest in peace Paul!! even though i personally dont know much about the band slipknot there r a few songs im into!!!

  35. 35

    Re: Elilan – they held a press conference on very short notice in respect for the fans. slipknot has a very large and dedicated fanbase and Paul's death is not just another superficial celebrity death. Have some respect!

  36. 36

    RIP Paul. We

  37. 37

    Re: #Cejers – hypocritical much? Are you not on here talking about it? I happen to be a fan of Perez, and a maggot since I was 10 years old thus I am commenting on this post because it involves my favorite band. There are so many idiots like you preaching your gratuitous bullshit on here–I have a right to give my opinions too. Have a nice day, know-it-all ;)

  38. 38

    umm who cares. he is in hell

  39. 39

    i said that just to piss off kaddict.

  40. 40

    RIP Paul Gray. we will miss and us maggots will never forget you

  41. 41

    "police are still baffled as to what caused his death" Then it's revealed that a needle was reported on the 911 call. Why do they release false statements when it was so in their face?

  42. 42

    Re: valpal88 – i'm not pissed, sweety. I am slightly amused with your immaturity. Don't worry, someday you might grow up.

    And p.s. there is no heaven or hell. There is only now. I say RIP because of social conventions.

    It is a shame that he died so young. It is a shame that he succumb to drugs. But regardless of any of that–he was an amazing bassist and his talent is undeniable.

  43. 43

    what in the fuck do you mean, "again, our sympathies go out…"
    You posted this news with no sympathies, no "sad, so sad" or "tragic"
    you listed the facts and that was it.
    All of his fans are well aware that you are not a Slipknot fan(Thank fuck for that!), but there are millions and millions of people who are…people who read your site, and mabye even occasionaly get a kick out of your antics.
    But your fake, ass-covering sympathies are fucking bullshit, Asshat.
    He was a real person and a great musician, and just because it's not your cup of tea, doesn't make his death any less of a loss to the world of music, and the universe in general.
    You make your "living" out of bringing pain and humiliation to people who you don't even know…
    Paul Gray made his living bringing his fans, his friends and his family Joy and love and pure happiness…
    What in the fuck is ANYONE going to say about you when you die?

    Re: YouGottaBeFuckingKidding – It's called a STATEMENT to the press. You tell your publicist to WRITE it and you RELEASE it. Questions ANSWERED. You don't fucking organize the media, a venue and put on your best boo-hoo face and show the fuck up to answer questions. I'm not heartless just smart and in the know. The LAST thing you should even care about before the body is in the ground is giving a press statement at all anyway. Bury the body - get the coroner report - speak from TRUTH not rumor when you have the cause of death and THEN I'll believe you that you're so fucking broken up. Oh yeah - as for commenting on the "lifestyle's" they lead in the press conference….weak. I'm sorry but a record deal with Roadrunner/Nuclear Blast divided 9 (or more ways) after taxes & management cuts made NOBODY rich. Especially when your top albums are only go GOLD. They need to keep on selling shit. The only thing Slipknot has as a consistent revenue stream is MERCH. SO don't fucking call me heartless — I know what I'm talking about. This is a business not a brotherhood and Slipknot NEEDED to get themselves some press to make all the kiddos run out to Hot Topic & buy another shirt before the river of nickels dries up for good. It's called SHOW business kitten. They put on a good show to get paid. Suck on that crybaby.
