On Saturday, May 25, 2024, the tragic passing of Grayson Murray was announced. His parents, in the announcement, confirmed that he died by suicide. Authorities have also released an official statement, revealing Murray’s cause of death.

According to reports, at around 10 am on Saturday, May 25, 2024, officials were called to a Palm Beach Garden townhouse. A neighbor alerted them after the house’s carbon monoxide alarm went off. Upon getting to the building, they found the apartment filled with fumes and Murray dead.

Further investigation showed that Murray died of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning which came from the garage, where his Land Rover had been left running. At the time of his death, he was cohabiting with his fiancée, Christina Ritchie. Authorities have now revealed the cause of death to be carbon monoxide poisoning.

However, just a day before his death, he announced his withdrawal from the Charles Schwab Challenge. According to his announcement, he withdrew because he was not in the best shape mentally and physically for the tournament.
