To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Any files on Jarad Anthony Higgins, a world-renowned rapper, who has passed away on December 8, 2019. Higgins, the famous musician, is also known by his rapper name, Juice Wrld. Although he was pronounced dead resulting from a drug induced seizure, there are unanswered questions lingering about Juice Wrld's passing. Many people believed the death of the beloved rapper was planned from the start, as his past tweets and lyrics predicted his death. I am looking evidence related to the death of Juice Wrld that could reveal signs of depression or a development of suicidal inclinations throughout his career. Millions of people in our country today are mourning the death of Juice Wrld, and they are in dire need to understand the truth of one of the most influential rappers this decade.
The first link attached below clarifies some examples of Higgins foreshadowing his own death, even to the point where he accurately predicted he would not live past the age of 21. The second link is an obituary of Juice Wrld, which also two features prominent figures who are devastated by his death.
