Juice WRLD Died from Accidental OD of Oxycodone and CodeineJanuary 22, 2020
Juice WRLD died from accidental overdose … according to the Cook County Medical Examiner.
The M.E.’s Office says it found Oxycodone and codeine in his system and determined he died from toxic levels of those drugs.
TMZ broke the story … Juice WRLD died in early December following a drug bust at Midway Airport in Chicago. Witnesses believed the rapper had swallowed a bunch of Percocet pills in an attempt to hide them from the feds. He ultimately suffered seizures, which proved fatal.
We should note Oxycodone is the main active ingredient in Percocet. Juice often rapped, and talked about abusing lean — aka codeine cough syrup. So, the presence of codeine in his system adds up.
The feds also found 70 pounds of weed in multiple vacuum-sealed bags inside luggage from the private jet. But, as we reported … it doesn’t appear anyone will be charged for the weed.
Juice WRLD’s family spoke out on the rapper’s struggle with prescription drug abuse and hope his story inspires others to win their own battles.
