According to The Des Moines Register, the wife and daughter of late SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray have obtained a settlement from health care providers who were blamed for his drug-overdose death.
Gray was found dead on May 24, 2010 after overdosing on drugs in a hotel room in a suburb of Des Moines, Iowa, where he and SLIPKNOT were based. His family blamed the death on a Des Moines pain doctor, Daniel Baldi, who had treated Gray for years, and sued the doctor and his former employers. The lawsuit was scheduled to go to trial on Monday, but it was settled over the weekend.
Baldi was accused of causing the deaths of Gray and eight others with his careless prescription habits.
The doctor was acquitted in May 2014 of seven criminal counts of involuntary manslaughter.
Baldi‘s lawyer cross-examined Brenna, asking her if she was aware that her husband overdosed on the painkillers fentanyl and morphine, neither of which Baldi ever prescribed to him.
