Juice WRLD: Rapper died from accidental overdose of painkillers, coroner rules

23 January 2020

A medical examiner has ruled Juice WRLD died after an accidental overdose of powerful painkillers.

The rapper - whose real name is Jarad A. Higgins - died in December 2019 at the age of 21 after having a seizure.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office says: "Higgins died as a result of oxycodone and codeine toxicity," and "the manner of death is accident."

These drugs are used to treat severe pain and contain opioids - they've been linked to an opioid crisis in the US.

Juice WRLD suffered a seizure during a police search of his private jet when it landed in at Chicago airport and later died in hospital.
