More details are pouring in surrounding the death of rap star Juice Wrld … details that could explain his sudden seizure at a Chicago airport.
Juice WRLD real name Jared Anthony Higgins might’ve made a fatal decision as law enforcement searched his private jet — swallowing a bunch of painkillers in an attempt to hide them from the feds.
Apparently the pilot who was flying Juice’s private plane alerted authorities on the ground that the rapper’s entourage had guns on them. When they landed, FBI and FAA agents were waiting for Juice and company.
At some point between the plane landing and the feds conducting their search Juice was seen swallowing several Percocet pills in what people believed was an attempt to hide them. It’s believed the pills might’ve contributed to his death.
An autopsy was performed on the rapper Monday, but additional testing, including toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology is still needed before determining an official cause.
As for what the feds found — 3 guns (which were all registered) and 70 lbs. of weed, allegedly found in multiple vacuum-sealed bags inside luggage from the private jet.
Emergency crews responded about 2 a.m. to a private hangar at the airport, according to the Chicago Fire Department, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Juice WRLD, was then rushed to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m.
