Police Investigating Fan Who Saw Lil Peep Shortly Before Death
(AllHipHop News) Arizona police officers investigating Lil Peep's death have reportedly discovered troubling messages allegedly sent by a fan who saw him just before he died.
Peep, real name Gustav Ahr, was found dead on his tour bus before a concert in Tucson, Arizona, earlier this month.
He was 21-years-old. Detectives reportedly suspect the rapper may have overdosed on drugs laced with the opioid fentanyl.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com that Tucson Police Department officers are also looking into private messages allegedly sent to a friend by a woman named Mariah Bons. Editors at the gossip site report that Bons saw Peep shortly before his death.
One alleged message reads, "GBC (Goth Boy Clique, a rap collective Peep belonged to) high af (as f##k) because of me and my friend lol (laugh out loud)."
She also allegedly wrote, "He (Peep) passed the f##k out my brother called and I tried to get him to say hi to my brother but he wouldn't wake up..."
Lil Peep's body was found alongside drug paraphernalia, Xanax, marijuana and an unknown powder. An initial autopsy proved inconclusive and toxicology results are pending.
The rapper often referred to drug use in his lyrics and in social media posts - and his brother Oskar has said he believes his sibling accidentally overdosed on tainted drugs.
"We (Peep's family) have heard there was some sort of substance he did not expect to be involved in the substance he was taking," Oskar told People magazine.
After his death, stars who paid tribute to the rapper included his ex-girlfriend, actress Bella Thorne, Mark Ronson, Ty Dollar $ign and Post Malone.
