Man Arrested in Connection with Mac Miller’s Death
Nearly a year after Mac Miller's sudden passing, an alleged drug dealer has been charged in connection with his death.
Last year, TMZ reported that Miller died from a lethal cocktail of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol at the age of 26.
The L.A. County Coroner released a toxicology report that notes “mixed drug toxicity” as the main reason for his death, which was ruled accidental.
According to the report, Miller's assistant found him unresponsive in a "praying position" with his face resting on his knees. There was blood coming out of his nose. An empty bottle of alcohol and a bottle of prescription drugs were found on the scene. A rolled-up $20 bill with a white, powdery residue was also found in his right pocket.
On Wednesday, Cameron James Pettit, 28, was charged with supplying Miller with the pills that contributed to his overdose. He was taken into custody on the same day.
In the 42-page criminal complaint obtained by TMZ, prosecutors alleged that Petit sold counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl to Miller, who had asked for Percocet.
The document noted that Miller got two deliveries of drugs, just two days before his death. One of the deliveries was from Pettit, who allegedly provided the fentanyl-laced oxy pills, cocaine, and Xanax. The second delivery was from a prostitute, who allegedly gave him additonal drugs. The prostitute worked for a madam allegedly associated with Pettit.
After Miller's death, prosecutors alleged that Pettit direct-messaged friends, saying he wouldn't post a reaction “just to be smart.” When someone asked how he was doing, Pettit allegedly wrote, “I am not great... Most likely I will die in jail.”
The criminal complaint noted that Pettit was one of three people to supply Miller with the counterfeit drugs.
