An Illinois medical examiner's office ruled on Wednesday that Juice WRLD died of an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine after he suffered a seizure.
He suffered the seizure at the airport as police searched his private jet for narcotics and guns. Two of Juice WRLD's bodyguards were charged following the search for unlawful gun possession.
