Cameron James Pettit Charged In Connection With Mac Miller's Death

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office Pettit was arrested on federal charges alleging he sold counterfeit pharmaceutical narcotics containing fentanyl to 26-year-old Malcolm James McCormick, who performed under the name of Mac Miller.

Cameron James Pettit, 28, is accused of selling counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs laced with fentanyl to the hip-hop artist - whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick - two days before his death in Studio City on September 7, 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Two days earlier, Pettit allegedly supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax, the criminal complaint said.

The docs claim authorities also found a plastic bag containing pills while investigating the 26-year-old's death, which investigators say were supplied by a prostitute and a madam.
