A drug dealer who allegedly sold drugs to rapper Mac Miller just before his death has been arrested in connection to the demise of the rapper.
Malcolm McCormick which is Mac Miller’s real name was found dead at the age of 26 in his studio home on the 7th of September 2018.
The man, who’s from Hollywood Hills, LA, was arrested and has been charged on suspicion of distributing a controlled substance.
According to a federal criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California, 28-year-old Cameron James Petit supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl which is fifty times more potent than heroin.
Mac Miller had reportedly asked to be furnished with “percs,” an abbreviation for percocet, a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.
The coroner eventually ruled that Mac Miller had accidentally taken an overdose which had killed him.
According to the BBC, part of the damning evidence against Petit was text messages found after the discovery of Miller’s body. He had sent a text to a friend where he had said: “Most likely I will die in jail.”
Petit has appeared before a court and is in custody pending the time of the trial. If found guilty, he would be looking at a jail term of about 20 years.
The two remained friends past the relationship and his death hit her hard. In an interview with Vogue, she said he was one of the best people in the world, but admitted that he struggled with demons.
“You have no idea how many times I warned him that that would happen and fought that fight, for how many years of our friendship, of our relationship” she said.
