Details about Juice WRLD’s final flight from Los Angeles to Chicago have surfaced, as per TMZ, and it seems the late rapper was popping pills while on the private jet.
On Monday (December 9), it was revealed that the rapper had popped “several unknown pills” prior to suffering the seizure, as per police testimony via passengers on the plane. Additionally, law enforcement sources told the celebrity gossip outlet that the FBI confiscated 70 pounds of weed that was stored in suitcases on the aircraft. Additionally, one of the rapper’s associates told police that the star had a Percocet problem and a bottle of codeine cough syrup was found on the plate. Juice WRLD’s cause of death has yet to be determined but the Cook County Medical Examiner is conducting an autopsy today. He was 21.
Meanwhile, two men on the plane, Chris Long and Henry Dean, were arrested for possession of handguns. Authorities recovered three guns in total. While Dean was released without bail, Long was released after posting a $1,500 bond.
As you know, the rapper died on Sunday morning after suffering a seizure in the Chicago Midway International Airport. He had just gotten off the plane after flying from California when the tragic incident occurred. Hours after the news broke, DJ Akademiks took to social media to share what is believed to be the last known footage of the star.
