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.

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

More Bedlam at Bellum Entertainment: Labor Commission Investigating Numerous Unpaid-Wage Claims

Some 50 employees of Bellum Entertainment have filed wage claims against the company with the California Labor Commissioner. The company even stiffed former FBI agents and ex-cops who appeared as experts on its true-crime shows, and Bellum’s former vice president – the nephew of its owner – says he’s owed money too.

“The claims mostly allege non-payment of wages and have been filed by actors, producers, crew members and others,” said Paola Laverde, a spokeswoman for the Labor Commissioner’s office. “Some have settled and some have not and are in different stages of the wage claim process.”

It Takes a Killer

Bellum, the Burbank-based producer of reality such shows as It Takes a Killer, Corrupt Crimes, I Married a Murderer and Bizarre Murders, has been having trouble meeting its payroll since June, when CEO Mary Carole McDonnell told
