Physician Daniel Baldi is accused of prescribing large amounts of narcotic painkillers to patients who later died of overdoses, including Slipknot’s Gray.
Today, the band issued a statement on Baldi’s arrest.
“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 band says.
“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,” the statement concludes. “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.”
Gray died two plus years ago from an accidental overdose; his body was found in a hotel room.
Paul was only 38.
