Almost one year to the date has passed since Mac Miller was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home. His untimely death, which was ruled an accidental overdose, sent shockwaves across the international music world. However, a later toxicology report showed the rapper died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine, and fentanyl.
Federal prosecutors have now charged a Hollywood Hills man, Cameron James Petit, in connection with Miller’s death. In a 42-page criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California, the report alleges Petit supplied the late rapper with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl, cocaine, and Xanax.
“We are aggressively targeting drug dealers responsible for trafficking illicit fentanyl, which has become the most deadly facet of the opioid epidemic,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna. “We are committed to slowing the number of overdose deaths and prosecuting those responsible for spreading this most dangerous opioid.”
If convicted, Pettit faces a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, according to the DEA.
