On Monday we reported about the death of one of America’s fast rising HipHop acts Juice World whose dream was cut short by the cold hands of death when he had a seizure at Chicago airport.
In a fresh development to his sad demise, the BBC reports that drugs and some ammunitions were found in his jet moments before he died.
Law enforcement officials were waiting for the plane when it landed, having received information that banned substances might be onboard.
It was during a subsequent search of the aircraft that the rapper had a seizure that led to his death.
An autopsy on the 21-year-old has proved inconclusive.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said on Monday that additional studies were needed before they could determine the cause of death.
Police in Chicago said they did not suspect foul play; but gave some additional details that shed light on the sudden death of one of hip-hop’s brightest rising stars.
Their search uncovered 41 “vacuum-sealed” bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, authorities told the US media, including the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times.
Two men identified by police as Juice Wrld’s security guards have been charged with illegally possessing guns and ammunition.
