Three men have been indicted in connection to Mac Miller’s deadly drug overdose, federal prosecutors have announced. A grand jury indictment that was unsealed in Los Angeles accuses the men of conspiring and distributing cocaine and oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl that caused Miller’s death in September 2018.Cameron Pettit, 28, of West Hollywood, California; Stephen Walter, 46, of Los Angeles; and Ryan Reavis, 36, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, were previously charged with drug-related offenses. Wednesday’s charges add the allegation that their drugs led to Miller’s death
Prosecutors say that instead of getting oxycodone on Sept. 5, 2018, the pills Mac received were counterfeit and contained fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid 50 times more powerful than heroin. According to TMZ, Mac allegedly crushed the pills, snorted them, and died.
Miller was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City, Calif. home on Sept. 7, 2018. The Coroner ruled his death as an accidental overdose due to mixed drug toxicity of cocaine, alcohol, and fentanyl, which is considered the number one cause of overdose deaths in the U.S.
