Rapper and singer Juice WRLD died as a result of oxycodone and codeine toxicity, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said Wednesday. The medical examiner determined the rapper’s manner of death to be an accident.
The rapper, whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins, suffered a medical emergency shortly after arriving at Chicago’s Midway International Airport in early December, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told CNN at the time.
The entertainer, 21, died at a hospital, according to police. The day Juice died, Chicago police were called to the airport to assist federal authorities “in regards to a private jet arriving at the airport which contained a large amount of narcotics,” police said in a statement.
The plane’s occupants were found inside the airport with two loaded luggage carts, the statement said. A search of the luggage found 41 bags of what was suspected to be marijuana, six prescription bottles of suspected liquid codeine and three firearms, the police statement said. None of the plane’s occupants claimed ownership of the luggage, police said.
The rapper had a seizure during the search, police said, and a Homeland Security officer administered Narcan to the victim. Narcan is used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.
