In a series of tweets on Friday, Grant Wahl’s brother said he had been through another life-changing moment several hours before the journalist died.
Eric Wahl said he “agreed to divorce the love of my life” last Friday.
“In the span of a few years, I observed [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 down my 19 year old cat. Last Friday, I agreed to divorce the love of my life, and later that day, my brother died,” Eric tweeted Friday.

Eric initially suspected foul play in his brother’s death. Previously, Grant had been prevented from entering a stadium while he was wearing a rainbow jersey.
Just one day before his death, Grant Wahl posted a scathing review of the Qatari government and the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, stating their indifference to the deaths of the 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 in the Saudi Arabian training center during the group stage. He suffered a fatal blow to the head during a fall in a forklift accident (information kept secret until broken by The Athletic’s Adam Crafton).”

“I’m gay. I’m the reason he wore the rainbow jersey at the World Cup,” Eric said. “My brother was healthy. He told me that he received death threats. I don’t think my brother died. I think they killed him and I’m just asking for help.”

Eric recently retracted his original suspicion and Grant was determined to have died of an “undetected, slow-growing” ascending aortic aneurysm with hemopericardium, according to an autopsy by a New York City medical examiner, according to Wahl’s wife, Dr. Celine Gounder.
