Lil Peep’s postmortem has been completed following his tragic death, revealing the 21 year old died in an apparent suicide.
The rapper, who’s real name was Gustav Åhr, passed away on Wednesday 15 November as the result of a suspected drug overdose, according to officials.
Police in Tucson, Arizona, say Lil Peep, was found dead on his tour bus less than an hour before he was to take the stage for a concert at a local club.
Sgt Pete Dugan told the Associated Press that evidence points to an overdose, although no official cause of death has been announced.
The Chief Medical Examiner at The Pima County Office also confirmed in a statement to the publication on Thursday, that it is suspected that the musician died as a result of a drug overdose.
“The Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner contracts toxicology testing with an independent reference laboratory,” said Dr. Gregory Hess.

Dr. Gregory Hess confirmed that the autopsy results from a comprehensive postmortem exam on the YouTube star could take over a month to finalise.
The results of the postmortem will be obtainable when the toxicology test is complete, but that it will be “six to eight weeks” before those tests results will be available to determine a definitive cause of death.
