Mac Miller Was Reportedly Dead for Hours Before His Body Was Found

Funeral services will reportedly be held in Pittsburgh for rapper and Point Breeze native Mac Miller. According to TMZ, Miller had been dead for several hours before he was discovered unresponsive inside his Southern California home on September 7.

The 26-year-old rap star, real name Malcolm McCormick, was found dead in his bedroom at his house in the San Fernando Valley area of LA last Friday.

Law enforcement sources say it was clear to paramedics that Mac was dead long before they arrived.

Still, Miller's autopsy has been completed, People reports. It's believed that he died of a drug overdose.

18 million new cancer cases this year
According to IARC , a specialised cancer agency of the World Health Organisation, the disease is a growing global health threat. It also expected the cancer burden to rise to 18.1 million new cases.

It is believed he died from an overdose but his death certificate states the cause of death is still unknown listed as "deferred". The exact cause of death will be confirmed after Miller's toxicology reports come back, in 4-6 weeks. The initial 911 call was reported a "cardiac arrest" upon the assumption the caller was present during the ordeal.

A small amount of white powder was found and police think that the house was cleaned to remove evidence of drugs.

The location was chosen for its significance to Miller: His 2011 debut album was named after the park's playground, known as Blue Slide Park, located just a couple blocks from the high school he went to. Thank you so much for everybody being here.
