Juice WRLD Died of Drug Overdose

The medicinal inspector's declaration comes a little while after the 21-year-old rapper, whose given name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, went into seizures Dec. 8 at Chicago's Midway International Airport.

Rapper Juice WRLD died of an accidental overdose of oxidodone and codeine, the Cook County (Illinois) medical examiner said Wednesday.

The medical examiner's announcement comes several weeks after the 21-year-old rapper, named Jarad Anthony Higgins, struck at Chicago's Midway International Airport on December 8, and then boarded a private plane. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The declaration that the rapper had oxycodone, a narcotic that is a painkiller, and codeine in his framework follows starting reports that a government operator who was at the air terminal to look through the plane regulated the narcotic antitoxin Narcan to the rapper after he'd gone into spasms.

At the time, Chicago Police representative Anthony Guglielmi said a medication sniffing hound made a "positive caution" on baggage trucks that were stacked with packs from the plane and that a pursuit of the gear uncovered sacks of suspected pot, jugs of remedy hack syrup, guns and metal-piercing shots.

Guglielmi said: "none of the dozen or so individuals on board the plane confessed to conveying the medications. In any case", he said that "analysts were leading a scientific investigation to figure out which packs had a place with which travelers, including that two security guards who were on the plane were captured for crime firearm charges. A call to Guglielmi on Wednesday to inquire as to whether any other individual had been charged was not promptly returned.
