The young rapper was found dead on March 6 at a South Carolina home, according to reports released by the Richland County Coroner’s office, reports Billboard.com.
Speaker, whose real name is Derek McAllister, was discovered in his garage on Two Notch Road in Columbia, SC. Coroner Gary Watts stated that he did not suspect foul play and an autopsy performed on the emcee turned up no sign of trauma. Results are pending for a toxicology test to determine if Speaker had any legal or illegal substances present in his body at the time of his death.

“It’s not like him not to communicate or come home for this long period of time,” Mesha reportedly wrote. “I pray that my son is ok.”
