Rapper, Eminem has lost his sister-in-law, the biological mother of his adopted daughter, Dawn Scott. The 41-year-old woman was found dead on Tuesday from a suspected drug overdose. She was found unconscious in a home in Macomb County, Michigan, along with an emaciated elderly woman who was taken to the hospital.
“She was found slumped over in bed and unresponsive,” Mayor James Fouts of Warren, Michigan told PEOPLE. “It’s suspected to be drug use, possibly heroin.”
The Macomb County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Scott’s identity, but could not confirm an official cause of death as a toxicology report is still pending.
“All I want in life is for the people I care about to be truly happy and healthy,” Eminem’s 20-year-old adopted daughter, Alaina Scott wrote.
