The Iowa-based, award-winning metal group Slipknot is asking that items stolen from a band member’s grave site be returned. Slipknot’s official Myspace page includes a new post from the band titled “Theft From Paul’s Grave.” It states several gifts left at Paul Gray’s grave site have been stolen.
The items included statues of a gargoyle and a Buddha. They were placed there by family and friends. The band is asking the items be returned with “no questions asked.” The 38-year-old Gray was found dead on May 24 in an Urbandale hotel room. An autopsy found he died of an “accidental overdose of morphine.”
Gray was a founding member of Slipknot, which won a Grammy in 2006.
