Maryland fugitive Roy McGrath died from self-inflicted gunshot and another from agent’s gun, authorities say

July 31, 2023

Roy McGrath, the onetime chief of staff to former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan who fled ahead of his federal corruption trial, died by two gunshots to the head — one was self-inflicted and the other came from a federal agent’s gun, authorities in Tennessee said Friday. Because the shootings happened simultaneously and because McGrath, 53, lived for another 30 minutes after being shot, the medical examiner wasn’t able to determine a manner of death, meaning either suicide or homicide, according to the autopsy report obtained by The Baltimore Sun.
