Beckett, who is seen at home with an unidentified friend, appeared to be tall filming himself pulling poses in the mirror and showing off his new space.

Another video shows that he takes a hit of an unidentified substance from a large bong, while a third contains footage of the large collection of modified weapons he has collected.

Friends said Beckett often posted videos on social media in which he drank ‘lean’ – a very intoxicating blend of codeine cough syrup and Sprite, also known as ‘purple drink’.

In addition, he was known for his regular use of the opioids Xanax and Percocet and, according to a friend who knew him from his time in Snow Mass, Colorado, was notorious for knocking on the door of his neighbors late at night to ask for baking soda that can be used to turn cocaine into smokable crack.
