Paul Gray Doctor Charged With Manslaughter
A doctor has been arrested and charged with manslaughter for over-prescribing painkillers to patients including the late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray. Gray died in 2010 aged 38 from a drug-related overdose. Now physician Daniel Baldi has been charged with eight counts of manslaughter, and is accused of unintentionally causing Gray's death by writing "high-dose prescription narcotics to a known drug addict" since 2005, according to Blabbermouth. The remaining members of Slipknot are outraged by the news, and sympathise with the victims of other families who have been affected by Dr. Baldi's alleged actions. "This new development has us all in a state of anger and sadness. The fact that this person took advantage of our brother's illness while he was in a position to help others has outraged everyone in our family. We can only hope that justice will be served so this can NEVER happen to anyone else ever again!" wrote the band in a statement. "Our thoughts go out to the families of the other victims. We plan to cooperate as much as we possibly can to ensure this tragedy is never repeated, and to make sure this man pays for what he has done." The doctor's lawyer says they will fight the charges. Grey is survived by his wife Brenna and daughter October.
