Lil Peep toxicology report rules death accidental due to Fentanyl and Xanax overdose

Lil Peep toxicology report rules death

In a tragic twist in the death of rapper Lil Peep, a toxicology report has ruled that his death was an accident.

The rapper hadn’t intended to take his own life, but had instead taken a lethal concoction of Fentanyl and Xanax which led to his death. There were previous claims his Xanax may have been laced with the Fentanyl.

The toxicology report says that the 21-year-old died as a result of ‘combined toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam.’ Alprazolam is another name for Xanax, used to combat anxiety.

In the report conducted by the Pima County Medical Examiner, and seen by TMZ, he also tested positive for several recreational drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and the painkiller Tramadol, as well as powerful opiates Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.

Fentanyl and Xanax are highly dangerous to take together as they can cause respiratory issues which can lead to a coma or even death.

Lil Peep, real name Gustav Åhr, had no alcohol in his system at the time of his death.


He died on November 15 in Arizona on his tour bus just hours before he was due to perform a show. Lil Peep reportedly went for a nap around 5.45pm and when his manager checked on him he was sleeping and breathing normally. When she checked on him later he couldn’t be roused.

Efforts were made at the scene to save his life, but he could not be revived.

Before the reports came to light, his brother claimed it had to have been an accident because Lil Peep had been very happy just prior to his death.

‘It was an accident, it really was an accident,’ he told People. ‘He was super happy with where he was in life.’

He added: ‘He was so proud when he heard that there were people in the world who wanted to kill themselves, and then they didn’t because they listened to his music. He was helping people, he was not somebody who needed help.

‘He was not as sad as people think he was. It’s frustrating as someone who remembers a happy brother.’
