Chicago, IL – Juice Wrld’s cause of death has officially been determined after he shockingly passed away last month. According to the Cook County Medical Examiner, the late rapper died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine.
The Interscope Records artist, whose real name was Jarad Higgins, went into cardiac arrest at the Chicago Midway International Airport and was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois on December 8, 2019.
According to police, Juice suffered a seizure while cops and federal agents searched his private plane for guns and drugs.
Witnesses claimed Juice swallowed multiple Percocet pills, which contain oxycodone, in an effort to conceal them from authorities. Police and federal agents were called to the airport after being tipped off to a private jet carrying large amounts of narcotics.
Authorities found 70 lbs. of marijuana and six bottles of what’s believed to be liquid codeine, but no passengers have been charged with drug possession so far.
Two of Juice’s security guards were hit with gun charges after three handguns were discovered on the jet.
Juice was 21 years old. He was laid to rest at a private funeral on December 13.
