The Swimming rapper died at his home, on 7 September, aged 26. He had blood coming from one of his nostrils.

Police found a rolled up $20 bill with white powdery residue in Miller's pocket, with a bottle of prescription pills in the bathroom and an empty bottle of alcohol on the nightstand. Days before his death, there were reports that he had broken up with his girlfriend, the singer Ariana Grande. An unnamed insider told People "this is such a shock". "In China, you have some pretty big companies sending that garbage and killing our people", Trump added.
