But it wasn't until September 7 at noon that Miller's body was discovered in his San Fernando Valley house, meaning he was "was dead for many hours before his body was discovered" by paramedics and professionals. Miller was found dead later in the afternoon.

Miller, 26, died of an apparent overdose at his California home last Friday.

It was previously reported that the Goosebumpz rapper, real name Malcolm McCormick, was pronounced dead at the scene after someone at his home called emergency services. It was called in as "cardiac arrest", because the person may not have realized he was dead.

Sources told the website that Miller's home had been virtually "swept clean" which they say would make "no sense" as someone who had overdosed would not have the foresight to clear their house of paraphernalia.

Investigators performed the autopsy and released the body to the family, but a cause will not be announced until the toxicology test results come back and that might take weeks or months, Los Angeles County coroner's spokeswoman Sarah Ardalani said Monday. Thank you for your prayers. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time'.

Mac had struggled with substance abuse, previously admitting he battled an addiction to lean or purple drank - a mixture of promethazine and codeine. He was 26 years old.
