An aspiring rapper and student at Michigan State University tweeted about hallucinogenic drugs just hours before he was found dead on a highway. Dustyn Frolka, also known as D-Fro, was found dead near East Lansing last Saturday in the middle of Interstate 69. He was 19 years old.

After a motorist called 911, police found Frolka partially clothed and in respiratory distress. He was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead. Although he had abrasions that indicated he had hit the pavement, there were no visible wounds on his body. Police are currently investigating the death as a homicide, but it’s possible that drugs may have played a role in the tragic death.

His final posts to his Twitter account included him writing, “Give me drugs, condoms and money, and I’m straight. I’ve never done DMT and tonight is about to change.” DMT is a reference to the hallucinogenic drug dimethyltryptamine. Frolka was also arrested last month for cocaine possession and had recently stopped performing after parting ways with his local record label. Blake Selby, a fellow rap artist who had signed him to his label, acknowledged that Frolka “had been on kind of a downward spiral.” But Becca Brett, a fellow MSU student who briefly dated him this year, remembered Frolka as “very giving, good hearted...he always had other people’s interests in mind.”

A benefit concert in honor of Frolka will be held on April 25 in Owosso, MI, with all ticket sales going towards a college fund for his infant daughter.
