At 10:50 AM on May 24, 2010 the dead body of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was discovered in an Iowa hotel room.  Friends and relatives had been unable to contact Gray and requested that his room be checked.   Later autopsy reports would list the cause of death as an accidental overdose of Morphine and Fentanyl.   The guitarist had apparently gone to the hotel to spend some time alone.  At the time of his death his wife Brenna was pregnant with their daughter.  

Paul Gray was one of the founding members of Slipknot and one of its principle songwriters.  He was also known as The Pig and #2.  Shawn Crahan, another original member of the group had this to say regarding Paul Gray:

"He was kind of the person in the band that really wanted everybody in the band to always get along and just concentrate on the band. He was a really great friend and just a great person. He's going to be sadly missed, and the world is going to be a different place without him."






Paul Gray's body was discovered in room #431.





Paul's grave does not have a permanent marker, but the plot outline is still visible.







On August 17, 2010, Brenna Gray gave birth to her and Paul's daughter.  She was given the name October Dedrick Gray.  She was born at 11:10 PM, weighing in at five pounds fourteen ounces and measuring nineteen inches.
