Many fans of Juice WRLD are still shocked by his sudden death and at that time, his cause of death wasn’t distinguished yet.
He came back from Chicago last month, December, and had been pronounced dead hours later after that.
Juice WRLD, with the real name of Jarad Anthony Higgins, had a seizure upon arriving at the Midway International Airport on December 8, 2019. He was brought immediately to the hospital but died after. An initial report said that the plane that he flew with was searched.
According to the Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, a drug-sniffing dog showed a positive alert on his luggage.
They found 41 bags of marijuana, bottles of liquid codeine, guns, and some ammunition. None of the people he went with admitted about the drugs.
Currently, the investigators are analyzing which bag belongs to which passengers. He also said that the two security guards on the plane were arrested for misdemeanor gun charges. He was given opioid antidote Narcan after he had the convulsions.
The Associated Press said, “The announcement that the rapper had oxycodone, an opioid that is a pain killer, and codeine in his system follows initial reports that a federal agent who was at the airport to search the plane administered the opioid antidote Narcan to the performer after he’d gone into convulsions.”
A post was shared from the Cook County’s Twitter regarding the cause of death, “The Medical Examiner’s Office has determined the cause and manner of death of 21-year-old Jarad A. Higgins.
Rapper Juice WRLD cause of death is due to oxycodone and codeine toxicity.
The result of this medical exam came weeks after his sudden death.
Some of the people who were with him during the flight were arrested for possession of firearms.
Juice WRLD was known to share his drug use through his songs.
In an interview with the New York Times, he acknowledged his use of Xanax, “I smoke weed, and now and then I slip up and do something that’s poor judgment. I have a lot going for me, and I recognize it’s a lot of big things, a lot of great looks. I want to be there, and you don’t have to overdose not to be there.”
Just recently, a surprise album from Eminem was released, “Music to Be Murdered”. Different artists were featured, including a collaboration with Juice WRLD before his death.
Carmella Wallace, the mother of Juice WRLD, hoped that this tragic event would raise awareness “Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend, and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction.”
She added, “We hope the conversations he started in his music, and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything.”
Juice WRLD lived in Chicago suburb of Homewood, where many artists and rappers grew up as well.
