Juice WRLD, whose name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, suffered a seizure shortly after arriving at Midway International Airport on Dec. 8, the Chicago Police Department said.


He was quickly transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead hours later.

“The announcement that the rapper had oxycodone, an opioid that is a pain killer, and codeine in his system follows initial reports that a federal agent who was at the airport to search the plane administered the opioid antidote Narcan to the rapper after he had gone into convulsions.

Several of the people who had accompanied the 21-year-old singer on the flight from Los Angeles to his hometown of Chicago were arrested for possession of a firearm.
