Tribute to Paul Gray (#2)
Paul Dedrick Gray, 38, of Johnston was found dead at about 10:50 a.m. Monday 24th May 2010 by an employee at TownePlace Suites, 8800 Northpark Drive in Urbandale, police said.
There was no evidence of foul play in Gray's death, but the investigation is ongoing, police said. An initial post-mortem examination on the 38-year-old's body proved 'inconclusive'
An autopsy performed Tuesday revealed no cause of death, and the Polk County medical examiner said he would not release evidence from the autopsy until toxicology tests are completed in four to six weeks.
Bottles of pills and a syringe were next to the body of Slipknot bass player when he was found dead at an Urbandale hotel, according to a 911 tape obtained by WOI-TV.
Paul leaves behind his wife Brenna Gray, who is pregnant with the couple's first child.
