The rapper's tragic passing happened following a seizure he suffered at Chicago's Midway Airport on Sunday, December 8.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said Monday that Juice Wrld's autopsy is complete, but declined to rule on a cause of death, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. According to police, people on the plane said that the late rapper had "popped several pills" prior to suffering seizures.

Federal authorities confirmed Monday that the opioid antidote Narcan had been administered to Higgins, who briefly woke up as they attempted to revive him.

According to the Guardian, Higgins went into convulsions while his private plane was being searched by federal agents and city police officers at Chicago's Midway International Airport.

He says a search found multiple bags of suspected marijuana, prescription cough syrup, three guns, metal-piercing bullets and a high-capacity ammunition magazine.

Juice was rushed to the Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill. where he was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m. Two security guards named Chris Long and Henry Dean, who accompanied the rapper in the private jet, were recently arrested for the possession of handguns.

The heavy police presence was there in part because the group's movements had been on the radar after an earlier raid at LAX on November 18, according to TMZ.

Sources tell TMZ that Higgins was flying to his hometown of Homewood, a suburb of Chicago, when the pilot allegedly alerted authorities that his entourage had guns and drugs on board.

The late rapper, who won Top New Artist at the 2019 Billboard Awards, had been vocal about his addiction in the past. On Twitter, he vowed to his girlfriend, Ally Lotti, that he would quit the painkiller codeine.
