A Los Angeles man has been charged in connection with the death of rapper Mac Miller.
28-year-old Cameron Pettit is accused of supplying Miller with counterfeit opioid pills that were laced with fentanyl two days before he died of an overdose.
An autopsy found Miller had fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his system when he was found unresponsive in his Studio City home last September. The cause of death was ruled an accidental overdose.
Authorities found drugs they believed were from Pettit in Miller’s home, and evidence that Miller had crushed and sniffed oxycodone provided by Pettit.
Prosecutors say Miller had texted Pettit asking for Percocet, Xanax and cocaine. Pettit allegedly replied with a price and said he could supply the drugs in an hour or two.
Pettit is not charged with having a direct role in Miller’s death. He was denied bail and will be arraigned on October 10.
Miller was in a two-year relationship with Ariana Grande that ended a few months before he died. Hip hop heavyweights including Travis Scott and Chance the Rapper were among those who attend his memorial service, highlighting Miller’s impact on the world of music.
