Police found the body of Jason Rae—the husband of Grammy-nominated British singer Corinne Bailey Rae—in a Leeds apartment on Saturday. He was 31. Toxicology reports have not been returned yet, but it's suspected Rae died of a drug overdose.
According to several stories in the British press, a 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of supplying Rae with drugs. He has since been released on bail. Rae's funk band, the Haggis Horns, cancelled their Leeds gig on Sunday after hearing about the saxophonist's death.
Corinne Bailey Rae was nominated for song of the year at the Grammy's in 2007 and 2008. Her latest disc, Live in London & NY, came out in April of last year.
