During an appearance on CBS, Wahl’s wife, Dr. Céline Gounder, confirmed that her husband had suffered from an aortic aneurysm, which Mayo Clinic describes as a bulge that forms in the wall of the aorta. Gounder noted that the aneurysm was “likely brewing for years.” The 49-year-old had mentioned having a severe cough in the days leading up to his passing. Some studies claim coughing is a symptom of thoracic aortic aneurysms.
The reporter’s brother, Eric Wahl, had expressed suspicion about his sibling’s death, claiming there was foul play, according to the New York Post . The journalist had criticized Qatar’s treatment of LGBTQ rights and migrant workers. The brother asserted Wahl was healthy and disclosed to him that he’d received threats to his life. The suspicious sibling eventually reversed course on his claims. Gounder said there was “nothing nefarious” about the situation.
The 49-year-old’s body returned to the US on December 12, with his wife by his body’s side as it traveled to the medical examiner’s office. Gounder offered her husband an emotional tribute on his Substack on December 14.
