Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who was also known as "#2" and "The Pig," was found dead in a room in a hotel room just outside of the band's hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, on Monday (5/24) morning. He was 38.
According to a report by the Des Moines Register, an employee of the Towne Place Suites, located in Urbandale, Iowa, discovered Gray's body and notified authorities. An autopsy performed Tuesday morning proved inconclusive, though it did confirm that there was no evidence of foul play or trauma. Determination of cause of death could take 4–6 weeks, pending toxicology test results.
