Mac Miller died from mix of fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol, coroner says

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office released the toxicology results Monday and revealed Miller died from "mixed drug toxicity".

His death has been categorized by the Coroner as an "accidental overdose".

Law enforcement sources say it was clear to paramedics that Mac was dead long before they arrived.

According to the report, Mac's assistant found him unresponsive on his bed in a "praying position" - kneeling forward with his face resting on his knees. During the 911 call, his assistant said that Miller was "blue". However, he admitted that Miller, who had a history of drug addiction, was known to abuse "alcohol, non-prescribed medication (specifically Xanax and unspecified opiates), and cocaine". A rolled $20 bill with "powdery residue" was found in the artist's right pocket.

Girl Scouts, adult killed when truck hits troop in Wisconsin
An adult was also killed and a fourth girl has been critically injured, police said in the USA state of Wisconsin on Saturday. Other members of the troop were picking up trash from the opposite shoulder as part of a recurring service project.

Meanwhile, an empty bottle of alcohol was near his body on a nightstand, with a bottle of prescription pills in the bathroom.

Miller's death came just months after he split from Ariana Grande and weeks after he was charged with a DUI.

Fentanyl was originally developed as a painkiller and anesthetic, but it's 50 to 100 times more potent than heroin. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.
