Late American rapper Jarad Anthony Higgins alias Juice Wrld who died in December 2019 was killed by an accidental overdose of drugs according to an autopsy report released on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
The Cook County Medical Examiner which carried out the autopsy on the rapper’s dead body identified the drugs that killed the 21-year-old as oxycodone and codeine.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Juice Wrld suffered a medical emergency shortly after arriving at Chicago’s Midway International Airport in December. He was then rushed to the nearest hospital where he was confirmed dead.
The police report said the private plane that brought the late rapper to the airport “contained a large number of narcotics”. People who were on board the plane with Juice Wrld had two loaded luggage carts which allegedly contained 41 bags of what reportedly looked like marijuana.
Other items found in the luggage carts, according to the report of the Chicago Police are six prescription bottles of suspected liquid codeine and three firearms. However, none of those on board the plane took ownership of the plane.
A police statement said the rapper had a seizure while the police were searching the bags on the private plane. The seizure prompted a Homeland Security officer to administer Narcan on the rapper. The drug is said to be used to reverse an overdose of Opioid.
Juice Wrld was born in Chicago, Illinois. He was best known for his hit singles “All Girls Are the Same” and “Lucid Dreams” which helped him gain a recording contract with Lil Bibby’s Grade A Productions and Interscope Records. He topped the Billboard chart in 2019 with his second album Death Race for Love.
The rapper predicted his death in one of his tracks titled: “Legends”. The track was about the short lives of artists. A line on the track goes: “What’s the 27 Club? We ain’t making it past 21. I have been going through paranoia.” May his soul find rest.
