September 7 will officially mark the one-year anniversary since Mac Miller passed away. The Pittsburgh legend died at the young age of 26 while in Studio City, CA. His death was initially ruled as an accidental overdose from from alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.
According to the Associated Press, prosecutors say that Miller was given fentanyl-laced by a drug dealer which led to his death. 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit is now being charged by feds for Miller’s death as they say the rapper used counterfeit oxycodone pills which had fentanyl in them. Pettit’s charges were listed in a 42-page criminal complaint from the Central District of California.
Prosecutors added that Miller had originally requested percocets. Two days before his death, Miller received “two deliveries” of drugs from Pettit which had fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills, cocaine and Xanax. A prostitute also gave Miller pure oxycodone, hydrocodone, amphetamine, Xanax and cocaine. Prosecutors say that the prostitute was working for a “madam” who had ties with Pettit. Pettit originally didn’t respond to the second request for the drugs so the madam sent the prostitute to make the delivery.
The prostitute and madam have not been charges yet as of now. The original autopsy revealed that Miller died from an accidental overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl. A month before his death, Miller had released his fifth studio album “Swimming.”
