Federal prosecutors have charged a man in the 2018 death of rapper Mac Miller at his Studio City, California home, NBC News reports.
A criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California alleges that a Hollywood Hills man named Cameron James Pettit provided Miller with fake oxys that contained fentanyl.
The 26-year-old rapper was pronounced dead at his home on September 7th, 2018 after being found unresponsive.
The L.A. County Coroner’s Office later ruled Miller’s death an accidental overdose as fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol were in the rapper’s system at the time of his death.
Pettit allegedly gave Miller, who had been asking for percs (the painkiller Percocet), pills that instead contained fentanyl, cocaine, and Xanax.
The complaint details Instagram messages Pettit sent to his friends in the wake of Miller’s death.
“I think I should probably not post anything … just to be smart,” he wrote in one. When someone asked how he is, he responded, “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.”
According to TMZ, the complaint says that Pettit is one of three people responsible for Miller’s death.
Petit was taken into custody on Wednesday morning. It is not yet known if the other two undisclosed persons have been charged.
The complaint also refers to a prostitute and a madam who also supplied Miller with the drugs.
The Drug Enforcement Agency said in a statement that Pettit would appear in court later in the day on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.
