In just a few days, September 7 will mark one year since Mac Miller’s tragic death. As Celebuzz!reported at the time, Mac Miller was pronounced dead in his San Fernando Valley home from “mixed drug toxicity.” Finding a combination of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in Miller’s system, the coroner categorized his death as an accident. Now, charges have been made to a man who knowingly supplied fake drugs to the rapper.
On Wednesday (Sept. 4), federal prosecutors have filed charges against Cameron James Pettit, 28, for supplying Mac with deadly, fentanyl-laced pills that were a direct contribution to the rapper’s death, according to TMZ. He was taken into custody.
As stated in the 42-page criminal complaint, prosecutors say the “Self Care” rapper asked Petit for “percs,” which is the street short term for the prescribed painkiller Percocet.
According to prosecutors, Petit supplied Mac with the counterfeit oxycodone pills just two days before the rapper’s death. The pills contained fentanyl, cocaine, and Xanax. According to TMZ, following Mac’s death, Petit allegedly direct messaged friends on Instagram, telling them that he probably shouldn’t post a reaction to the rappers death “just to be smart.”
The news outlet reports that prosecutors claim that when someone asked Petit how he was doing, he wrote, “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.” Whew! If that doesn’t sound like he’s guilty…
The 42-page criminal complaint also states that Petit was one of three people who supplied Mac with fake drugs. There’s no word on the other two suspects nor if any charges have been filed against them.
Like we’ve previously stated, Mac’s death came after he was officially charged following his May 2018 car accident and subsequent arrest. The rapper was facing a DUI charge, which comes with a possible sentence of six months in jail and a $1k fine.
