Juice Wrld Died Of Drug Overdose
A month after the untimely death of American rapper Juice Wrld, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday revealed that the rapper died of oxycodone and codeine overdose.
Juice Wrld whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins died after suffering a seizure while walking through Chicago’s Midway airport on Sunday, December 8.
Before Juice Wrld’s private plane arrived from Los Angeles, police officers and federal had been waiting at the Atlantic Aviation hangar at Midway early Sunday because they suspected the 21-year-old musician was in possession of contraband.
Police sources revealed that Juice Wrld began convulsing and going into a seizure as the police were going through two carts of luggage.
An agent administered two doses of Narcan, an emergency treatment when an opioid overdose is suspected.
Juice Wrld woke up but was incoherent, police said. Paramedics took him to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m., about an hour after he landed in Chicago.
The police search of the luggage aboard the plane turned up 41 “vacuum-sealed” bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9-millimetre pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, according to police. The two guards with Higgins were charged with illegally possessing the guns and ammunition.
Juice Wrld was 21 years old when he died.
