Autopsy showed morphine overdose killed Slipknot bassist

Slipknot bassist Paul Gray’s death two months ago was from an accidental morphine overdose, the Polk County, Iowa, medical examiner said Monday.

Gray, 38, was found dead by staff at a hotel near Des Moines, Iowa on May 24, said Sgt. Dave Disney of the Urbandale Police Department.

Toxicology test results showed a fatal level of morphine and fentanyl — a synthetic morphine — in Gray’s body, said Dr. Gregory Schmunk.

Schmunk also noted the presence of significant heart disease, according to a police statement Monday.
