Lil Peep

Police Have Officially Confirmed The Cause of Rapper Lil Peep's Death

Last week, we shared the news that police were investigating the death of rapper Lil Peep.

Peep had become famous earlier in the year after coming out as bisexual and dropping his first album.

Then a month ago, the 21-year-old rapper was found dead, and police opened up an investigation because they feared foul play may have been involved.

This thought sprang up after texts were found from a woman who allegedly visited Peep before his death.

One text allegedly says, “GBC [Lil Peep] high af because of me and my friend lol.”

The investigation is still ongoing but has now confirmed the fact that Lil Peep died from a Fentanyl-Xanax overdose.

Sargent Pete Duncan from the Tucson, Arizona Police Department share that, “It appeared to have been an overdose from evidence found near his body – most likely from Xanax or a combination of different drugs.”

Then later, the toxology report from the Pima County Medical Examiner confirmed that there were traces of “many other” drugs in the rapper’s system.

That said, the investigation is still ongoing as police still haven’t ruled out whether his death was a planned murder or not.

As Dugan told Rolling Stone that they have yet to find out if any of the drugs he took were tampered with and that, “it will really boil down to what was in his system.”

Police Suspicious that Recently Out Rapper Lil Peep’s Death Was Foul Play

Last month, news hit that rapper Lil Peep was found dead of what looked like an overdose. The relatively new celebrity made news in the summer for coming out as bisexual and then debuted his album to moderate success.

When the artist died, his social media received a multitude of messages from celebrities like Sam Smith, Charlie XCX, and Post Malone. Then, a live stream of his memorial service was shared last night (and can be viewed below).

But that’s not the end of the story, it seems.

The Tucson Police Department have opened up an investigation into the death of Lil Peep after discovering “troubling private messages” on his phone, says TMZ.

The texts seem to have been sent by a woman who reportedly went to the tour bus to see the rapper right before his death.

“GBC [Lil Peep] high af because of me and my friend lol,” the woman allegedly wrote in a group text message. “He passed the f*ck out. My brother called and I tried to get him to say hi to my brother, but he wouldn’t wake up.”

Then before Lil Peep’s death, he posted a video on Instagram where he said, “six Xanax, and now it’s lit.”

Police are currently looking into if the Xanax he took was laced with fentanyl. That said, it will take sometime between six to eight weeks to get the results from the full toxicology test.
