An autopsy report released today reveals Slipknot bassist Paul Gray’s death was caused by an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl, a narcotic analgesic that is 100 times more potent than morphine. According to the Polk County, Iowa Medical Examiner’s Office, the toxicology report and final autopsy showed that Gray also had “significant heart disease” at the time of his death on May 25th at age 38.

Another passing that possibly could have been prevented. How sad…
