Juice Wrld May Swallowed Drugs Purposely To Avoid Feds
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Juice Wrld may have caused his own death in order to hide evidence from investigators.
According to reports, the 21-year-old rapper swallowed multiple Percocet pills because police were awaiting his private jet at Midway Airport in Chicago.
The Feds had been investigating the "Lucid Dreams" rapper since November.
On Sunday (December 8th), federal agents and city police officers were waiting for Juice Wrld's aircraft when it landed, after being tipped off that a private plane traveling from Los Angeles to Midway with guns and drugs.
During the search of luggage carts loaded with bags from the plane, a sniffer dog made a "positive alert," at which point officers found numerous bags of suspected marijuana.
They also found bottles of prescription cough syrup, three guns, metal-piercing bullets, and a "high-capacity ammunition magazine."
It was during the search that the rapper, real name Jarad Higgins, started going into convulsions. After his girlfriend said he'd been taking Percocet, an opioid painkiller, one of the agents administered Narcan in a bid to revive the star.
According to the Chicago Tribute, the musician woke up briefly but was incoherent. He was later pronounced dead at the nearby Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at around 3:15 am on Sunday morning.
Police have yet to confirm or deny reports that the rapper swallowed a host of Percocet tablets in a bid to hide them from officers and agents conducting the search.
An autopsy on the rapper's body was completed on Monday, but additional testing was ordered. The results have yet to be announced.
