WAYNE STATIC's Widow TERA WRAY STATIC Found Dead

Tera Wray Static, the widow of STATIC-X frontman and founder Wayne Static, was found dead late last night of an apparent suicide, a longtime associate of Wayne has confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. More details regarding her passing will be posted here as soon as they become available.

In a 2013 interview with Gotham News, Wayne revealed that his wife’s presence on the road at least partly contributed to the breakup of STATIC-X‘s classic lineup. He said: “Well, I wanted Tera on tour with me, so she was always with me. She was with me during interviews too. We love each other. I wanna have her with me at all times. She came on stage and danced for a few songs and… I think Tony [Campos, then-STATIC-X bassist] didn’t like that. I think it pissed him off. I think he thought, ‘She’s not in the band, she shouldn’t be here.’ But the reality of it was, we’d do interviews and she’d just sit there. He didn’t like the fact that she was around all the time. For all I know, maybe he thought he should’ve hooked up with her and ended up married to her, so maybe he’s jealous. I don’t know. I don’t fucking know. I could give a shit if we did an interview and his girlfriend was sitting next to us. The funny thing is, before we got married and she was a porn star, she rode with us on the bus for a whole year, [and] everyone loved her then. When she was a porn star, everything was awesome. Then we got married, and everything changed. I don’t know why.”

Last July, Tera paid tribute to her late husband with a sleeve tattoo that she showed off on Facebook.

Wayne Static died after mixing Xanax and other powerful prescription drugs with alcohol, according to the coroner’s report. The 48-year-old Static, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was found dead in his Landers, California home on November 1, 2014.

The report, which was released in March 2015, stated, “[Static‘s] wife stated that just prior to going to bed, he crushed one-half of a 30 mg oxycodone pill and consumed it. The oxycodone had been prescribed to his wife. He also drank an unknown amount of alcohol. His wife awoke at around 1530 hours. She found the decedent dead in the bed and called 911 at 1547 hours. Paramedics arrived and confirmed death at 1600 hours, noting rigor mortis and lividity.”

The report added that Tera Wray told them that Static “took oxycodone, Xanax (alprazolam) and alcohol to relieve panic attacks.”

She claimed that he took Xanax on a daily basis at the prescribed dosage, according to the report, and would “occasionally have his own prescription for oxycodone, but he would usually take hers.”

Wray also told the coroner that she and Static “had a history of cocaine and ecstasy abuse, but they stopped using illicit drugs in 2009.”

Static‘s mother also told the coroner that her son was a “self-admitted alcoholic” for whom drinking had been a problem for two years. Both his mother and Wray said that Static was “not suicidal.”

Statements from both Wray and a publicist back in November 2014 dismissed rumors that his passing was the result of a drug overdose.

Static founded STATIC-X in 1994 and achieved commercial success with the band’s 1999 debut, “Wisconsin Death Trip”, which included the rock radio hit “Push It”.

The group issued five more studio albums before disbanding permanently in June 2013. Static has been pursuing a solo career at the time of his death.
