#1. He Filmed Lil Peep Before He Died
There’s very little information available about Bexey Swan. He’s reportedly a musician based in London and frequently collaborated with Lil Peep. He also promoted merchandise from Lil Peep’s promotional tour for his debut album.
Lil Peep, whose real name is Gustav Åhr, embarked on a tour for the promotion of his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober. The tour was expected to conclude on November 17.
Lil Peep passed away before a show in Tucson, Arizona. While the official cause of death hasn’t been disclosed, it is suspected that he died of a drug overdose.
The night before the 21-year-old’s death, Swan posted a Snapchat video of Lil Peep. The hip-hop artist was seen sleeping in the tour bus, with his head thrown back and his mouth hanging open.
In the clip, Swan tells the camera, “Apparently Peep’s at the back of the bus doing press ups, sit ups, working on his six pack, his muscles… I’m going to see for myself.” The camera moves to another part of the tour bus where we see Peep’s seemingly lifeless body. But before the video ends, Swan is back in the frame and says, “Oh.”

The Snapchat video was falsely linked to Lil Peep’s final moments and has since gone viral on the Internet. People who have seen it mistakenly believe that Peep is dead or close to dying in the video. Trolls have lashed out against Swan for posting the video and accuse him of not saving Peep.
People believe that Lil Peep passed out from using drugs and wonder if Swan would have checked to see if he was breathing, he could’ve saved him. Swan’s social media has since been flooded with accusations that he let his friend die.
