There has been a break in the investigation into the death of Rapper Mac Miller as his alleged drug dealer is charged!
Federal prosecutors have officially charged a Hollywood Hills man in connection to the death of rapper Mac Miller.
In a 42 page criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California, Cameron James Pettit, 28, is the person who allegedly supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl.
In discovered text messages between Miller and Pettit, prosecutors say the late rapper asked Pettit for percs,” which is an abbreviation for percocet, a prescribed painkiller that contains oxycodone.
Miller who was found unresponsive in his studio city home back on September 7th of 2018 was said to have suffered from an overdose.
After autopsies and toxicology reports, Miller’s death was later ruled an accidental overdose from alcohol, cocaine, and fentanyl.
Two days after Miller’s death, authorities served search warrants on various locations. At one location, they discovered a plastic bag containing pills that were allegedly supplied by a prostitute and later given from Pettit to Miller.
What makes this case ever more sticky is that prosecutors say that Pettit DM’ed his friends after Miller’s death saying he shouldn’t post anything as a reaction “just to be smart.”
They also say he later would respond “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail” when someone asked how he was doing.
As of now, there is no word on what charges he will face, but as more news is released, we will keep you updated!
