Eminem's sister-in-law Dawn Scott was found dead on Tuesday, January 19 in a Detroit trailer park. Police confirmed that Dawn died after "an apparent heroin overdose."
"She was found slumped over in bed and unresponsive," Mayor James Fouts of Warren, Michigan said. "It's suspected to be drug use, possibly heroin." Dawn, who died at her age of 41, is the twin sister of Eminem's ex-wife Kimberly Anne Scott. Dawn is also the biological mother of Eminem and Kim's adopted daughter Alaina.
Kimberly was shocked and she couldn't hide her grief. Shortly after getting the sad news, she posted a heartfelt message for her late twin sister. "Dawn was my sweet, beautiful sister who lost her way. I kept a light lit for her hoping she'd find her way back to me," she wrote. "I miss her and love her more than anything I could ever say. I wish she was here so I could hug her and tell her I love her."
On Wednesday, January 20, Kim posted a sweet note on a funeral home's tribute wall. "Half of me is gone and I will never feel whole again. She made me laugh and kept me on my toes. She was the best sister and friend in the world and I will miss her until we are together again," so read the note.
