Slipknot have released a statement on a developing story about the death of their brother and bassist Paul Gray. Two years after his tragic passing, information has been released that Gray's physician Daniel Baldi was charged for involuntary manslaughter after being caught for over prescribing narcotic painkillers to his patients - one of those patients being Paul Gray.

Slipknot's statement can be seen below:

As the loss of our brother Paul Gray is still very fresh for us in the Slipknot family, 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! 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.
