Mac Millers Death Was A Murder (Details Here) 

 

The 42-page criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California alleges that Cameron James Pettit, 28, supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl. Miller had asked to be furnished with “percs,” an abbreviation for percocet, a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.

Miller was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home on Sept. 7, 2018. The manner of death was certified as an accident, although it was later determined that the rapper died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.

Investigators, who served search warrants at multiple locations, recovered a plastic bag containing pills allegedly supplied by a prostitute and a madam. Two days earlier, Pettit delivered to Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained 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.”

The criminal complaint detailed Instagram direct messages between Pettit and others reacting to the rapper’s death. “I think I should probably not post anything …just to be smart,” Petit allegedly said in one of the texts.

Asked in another text message how he was doing, Petit allegedly wrote: “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.”
