In a series of tweets on Friday, Grant Wahl’s brother said he went through another life-changing moment a few hours before the journalist’s death.
Eric Wahl said he “agreed to a divorce from the love of my life” last Friday.
“For a couple of years I’ve watched [Grant’s wife] Celine’s father died on a stretcher, my mother died, my mother-in-law died, my father died; Last month I had to put my 19 year old cat to sleep. Last Friday I agreed to a divorce from the love of my life and later that day my brother passed away,” Eric tweeted on Friday.

Eric initially suspected foul play in his brother’s death. Grant had previously been prevented from entering a stadium while wearing a rainbow shirt.
Just a day before his death, Grant Wahl published a scathing review of the Government of Qatar and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, protesting their indifference to the deaths of workers who built the World Cup stadium.
“The Supreme Committee in charge of the World Cup in Qatar does not care that a Filipino migrant worker died at the Saudi Arabian training center during the group stage. He suffered a fatal blow to the head in a fall in a forklift accident (information on file was classified until broken by The Athletic’s Adam Crafton).”

“I’m gay. I’m the reason he wore the rainbow shirt to the World Cup,” said Eric. “My brother was healthy. He told me he had received death threats. I don’t think my brother just died. I believe he was killed and I’m just asking for your help.”

Eric recently refuted his initial suspicions, and it was determined that Grant died of a “slow-growing, undetected” ascending aortic aneurysm with hemopericardium, according to an autopsy by a New York City coroner, Wahl’s wife, Dr. Celine Gounder revealed.
