Paul Gray of Slipknot

Involuntary Manslaughter Case Against Dr. Of Late Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray To Go Before Supreme Court


It’s often said that the wheels of justice are slow to turn and such is the case with the involuntary manslaughter count faced by Dr. Daniel Baldi—the former doctor of late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray. Baldi was previously acquitted on numerous involuntary death charges—including Gray‘s. The victims families alleged that Baldi recklessly prescribed medication to patients who were at risk (aka had previous struggles with addiction.) Gray himself died as a result of an overdose of morphine and fentanyl back in May of 2010.

Gray‘s widow Brenna filed a lawsuit against Baldi back in 2014 that was initially dismissed due the Iowa statute of limitations. Gray filed the suit in 2014 and the current laws in Iowa state that a suit must be filed within two years of a person’s death to be valid. A new report over at The Des Moines Register has word that the case will now go before the Iowa Supreme Court tomorrow, Tuesday, February 15th, with a verdict in the favor of Gray‘s estate potentially undoing the the two-year rule.
