Popular rapper, Juice WRLD died from oxycodone and codeine toxicity, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has said.
The lyricist died at a hospital he was rushed to after battling a medical emergency when he arrived at Chicago’s Midway International Airport on December 8, 2019.
On the day he left the world, Chicago police stormed the airport to help federal authorities “in regards to a private jet arriving at the airport which contained a large amount of narcotics.”
As police checked the plane, they saw forty-one bags of what was suspected to be marijuana, 6 six prescription bottles of suspected liquid codeine and three firearms, according to their statement.
The late rapper suffered a seizure during the search, and a Homeland Security officer administered Narcan, a procedure used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, to him.
Sadly, Juice did not make it.
