AceShowbiz - Juice WRLD's friends could be held accountable for the rapper's death. Words are chicago prosecutors are currently exploring whether to charge the "All Girls Are the Same" hitmaker's friends with felony murder.
Under "felony" murder, a person is guilty if he's committing a crime and someone dies during the commission. According to MTO News, an anonymous tweeter with clear ties to the Chicago prosecutor wrote, "Juice Wrld's team were smuggling drugs, and he tried to hide the evidence and died. It's straight forward felony murder."
As it has been reported before, police found 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 when searching Juice's plane. Two security guards working for Juice were charged with misdemeanor offenses for illegally possessing the guns and ammunition.
As the authorities were conducting the search, the Chicago-born star allegedly suffered convulsions and went into cardiac arrest. When his girlfriend was asked by police if he had any medical issues or had ingested any drugs, she replied that he took Percocet, a painkiller, and "has a drug problem," according to sources.
The "Lucid Dreams" spitter briefly woke up after an agent administered two doses of Narcan, an emergency treatment when opioid overdose is suspected, but he was "incoherent." He was then rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, where he was pronounced dead at 3:14 A.M. local time.
Meanwhile, Juice's ex-girlfriend has spoken up on his drug issue. Alexia Smith, who claims she was in a relationship with the rapper for nearly a year in 2018, tells Daily Mail that the late artist would take up to three potent Percocet pills a day and mix the drugs with a cough syrup concoction called lean. She also claims that she tried to help him get clean, but he turned violent during his withdrawals.
