Late rapper Mac Miller has passed away for many hours before his body was found in his home's bedroom in San Fernando Valley.
The Pittsburgh native's friends stayed in his house for a party until morning. He passed away due to an apparent drug overdose. According to the police, no one has come forward to claim that Mac was alive after the night of Thursday.
New Details About Mac Miller's Death
According to a report by TMZ, law enforcement told them that when the authorities got to the rapper's home on the noon of Sept. 7, it was apparent that he had been dead for hours.
Furthermore, he was pronounced dead at the scene, after 911 received a call saying that he was unconscious. The dispatch call came through as cardiac arrest. This might be because the caller may not have known that the famous rapper was already dead when the call was made.
An autopsy has been completed on his body. However, it was not enough to reveal the cause of his death. Until now, authorities are still not able to determine the rapper's cause of death, as per his death certificate. The Coroner is still waiting for the results of the toxicology test, which could take up to four to six weeks.
TMZ claims that they got a tip from law enforcement that a small amount of white powder was found at the home. Cops also claim that Mac Miller's home was cleaned out to hide any evidence of drugs.
The rapper dated singer Ariana Grande before his death. The two broke up in May, and Grande is now involved with Pete Davidson. According to rumors, Mac Miller was struggling with his split from the Grande.
"I am happy for her and moving forward with her life just as I'm sure she is with me," said Mac Miller before he passed away.
Petition To Rename Frick Park
The rapper's body was taken back to Pittsburgh, his hometown, for the funeral. There is also a vigil for him, along with a petition to rename Frick Park to Mac Miller Blue Slide Park to memorialize him. The park is notably the namesake of the rapper's first album, Blue Slide Park.
However, Mayor Bill Peduto of Pittsburgh said that it would be a long process before the park would be renamed because there are strict rules on naming a public asset.
Thousands of people are attending the rapper's vigil in Pittsburgh organized by Nightfall Records. A documentary will also be shot during the event. The event will have food trucks, art events, and a candlelight ceremony.
