UPDATE: Authorities Find Drugs and Weapons on Juice WRLD's Plane

His cause of death remains unknown.

UPDATE (December 11, 2019): Following the sudden death of rapper Juice WRLD, born Jared Anthony Higgins, the New York Times reports that authorities found drugs and firearms on the plane the rapper traveled on before suffering a fatal seizure.

According to Chicago police, the plane was carrying approximately 70 pounds of marijuana, six bottles of codeine cough syrup, two nine-millimeter pistols and a .40-caliber pistol when it landed at Midway Airport in Chicago. Metal-piercing bullets and a high-capacity ammunition magazine were also discovered on the aircraft.

Though two of the rapper’s security guards were charged misdemeanors for illegal possession of guns and ammunition, no drug charges have been filed. In addition, Higgins’ cause of death remains unknown. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said additional studies, including toxicology and neuropathology reports, must be administered before drawing any conclusions.
