At first, authorities believed that the death was caused by an overdose – Miller had a long documented battle with addiction – but are also now saying that they have reason to believe that his home was cleared of any evidence of drug use prior to investigation, according to TMZ.
When police arrived, they reportedly only discovered a small amount of white powder. After conducting interviews with various witnesses and collating other evidence, they think they have reason to believe that the house was cleared of drugs at some point between Thursday night and Friday morning (LA time).
They also reportedly said that people were at the house between that time as well.
An autopsy and toxicology report is being done to determine the exact cause of death.
In the meantime, tributes from all corners of the music world have been flowing in since the shock announcement of Miller’s passing, as it is clear he touched so many. His ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, is the latest to do so, posting a simple, heartfelt photo of him on Instagram.
