Earlier today we reported that over the weekend that Juice WRLD has passed away after suffering a seizure in the Chicago Midway Airport at the age of 21.
It was later stated that the rapper had allegedly swallowed several pills before boarding his flight, now the medical examiner’s office has officially launched an autopsy on him to determine the cause of death.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office released a statement, “The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that studies are required to establish the cause and manner of death for 21-yer-old Jarad A. Higgins. Additional studies include cardiac pathology, neuropathology, toxicology, and histology. The cause and manner of death are pending at this time. The Office will release a statement when cause and manner of death are determined.”
Juice WRLD was alive when the paramedics arrived but was later pronounced dead shortly arriving at the hospital.
We will continue to keep his family, friends and loved ones in our prayers. May he rest in peace.
