Roy McGrath, embattled Hogan aide who evaded trial last month, dies after being found by authorities

April 4, 2023

Roy McGrath, a close ally of former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan who initiated a nationwide search three weeks ago when he did not appear in court to answer wire fraud charges, died Monday after being found by authorities in Tennessee. He was 53. Mr. McGrath, whose brief role as the governor’s chief of staff ended in scandal leading to criminal charges, died Monday evening after being shot near a shopping center in West Knoxville as federal agents closed in on his location. It was unclear Monday night whether Mr. McGrath was shot by an agent or shot himself.
