An unconfirmed report to emerge from the tragic story of the later performer Juice WRLD claims he swallowed the pills which are believed to have killed him…to hide them from the police.
The 21-year-old star passed away on Sunday after he is said to have ingested opioids on a plane as it was being searched by police.
Today, sources have told authorities that he only swallowed the drugs (Percocet) because he feared he’d face legal trouble if they were discovered by officers.
It is believed, according to the reports, Juice WRLD may have been trying to get rid of the pills, knowing that the group was carrying tons of weed and several firearms.
His official cause of death is still unknown as the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office and authorities say they need results from toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology tests to determine the official cause.
The tragedy kicked off when the Chicago Police Department received an alert from a source who urged them to search the rapper’s plane as they drugs and firearms were on board.
When agents stepped on to conduct a search they found 70 lbs of marijuana as well as two guns and were horrified when Juice went into convulsions and collapsed.
To save him, the officers administered 2 doses of a drug named Narcan to him and were relieved when he woke up.
Alas, he passed away shortly after and was pronounced dead at 3.14 am.
