Rapper Lil Peep Dies Of Suspected Drug Overdose After Posting Haunting Instagram Message

Rapper Lil Peep, born Gustav Ahr, reportedly died of an overdose on Wednesday. His manager Mikey Cortez confirmed his death on Instagram.

According to The New York Times, authorities suggest the 21-year-old Long Island rapper’s death was the result of a Xanax overdose before he was scheduled to perform a show in Tucson, Arizona.

“I’m completely heartbroken and lost right now,” Cortez said on Instagram. “I can’t even feel it’s not real. I love you and I’ll miss you always. One of the realest. Please someone tell me this isn’t real.”

Peep released his first project, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1, over the summer. On it, he repeatedly referenced his consumption of cocaine, molly and Xanax, according to UPROXX.

The star made a chilling Instagram post just hours before he died. In one, he appears to be taking two pills.

5 Of The Most Shocking Moments From The Jeffrey Dahmer Trial

On February 19, 1992 Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to 15 consecutive life terms in prison after he confessed to killing, dismembering and sometimes eating 17 boys and men. As Wisconsin no death penalty, it was the maximum sentence allowed. The three-week long trial had no shortage of sad and unsettling moments. Here are some of the most shocking.

On November 11, Oxygen will air a special two-night event, Dahmer on Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks, with new revelations about the infamous serial killer.

1. When a victim’s sibling lunged at Dahmer

Nine relatives of Dahmer’s victims spoke on the stand to describe the pain they’ve endured because of the serial killer’s actions. The statements were heartbreaking, but none more than Rita Isbell’s (which starts at 2:19 in the video below.) Dahmer killed her brother Errol Lindsey and Isbell’s grief erupted into an emotional outburst.

‘Dahmer On Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks’ Premieres November …

Oxygen Media, the new destination for high-quality crime programming, ventures into the mind of America’s most notorious serial killer when its two-night special “Dahmer on Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks” premieres Saturday, November 11 at 7pm ET/PT. Twenty-five years ago, Milwaukee resident Jeffrey Dahmer was tried and convicted of 17 gruesome murders, shaking the public’s perception of evil to its core. The shocking nature of his crimes – luring young men into his home, where he drugged, sexually violated, killed and eventually consumed his victims – unmasked a madman walking in the shadows and launched the question: how did a once mild-mannered, handsome young man become one of history’s most terrifying and unexpected serial killers? During his time behind bars, one of the nation’s leading investigative journalists, Nancy Glass, secured both exclusive access and the first televised interview with Dahmer, developing a candid relationship in which he divulged the darkest

Sky Vision Commits to True Crime

Barnaby Shingleton, the director of entertainment and factual at Sky Vision, talks to TV Real about the ongoing demand for crime-themed factual programming.

Chalk it up to morbid curiosity but there’s something fascinating about stories centered on illegal activity.

“Over the last couple of years Sky Vision has greatly expanded its true-crime catalog, reflecting the increased audience demand for this genre of programming,” says Barnaby Shingleton, the director of entertainment and factual at Sky Vision. “There are close to 500 hours of [true-crime] content in Sky Vision’s catalog, from long-running series like I Knew My Murderer and It Takes a Killer (Bellum Entertainment) through to limited series
