Second Man Arrested In Connection With Mac Miller’s Fatal Overdose

A second man has been arrested in connection with rapper Mac Miller’s death. 

Mac – real name Malcolm James McCormick – died in 2018 after a fatal overdose.

The second arrest comes just weeks after Los Angeles prosecutors charged another man for allegedly supplying the rapper with counterfeit drugs laced with fentanyl. 

Ryan Reavis, 36, was taken into custody after the FBI targeted him over Miller’s death, according TMZ

Authorities obtained a search warrant for Reavis’ home.

They reportedly found prescription-only pills, marijuana and a physician’s prescription pad. 

Cops also found firearms, including a 9mm pistol and two shotguns, a homemade firearm suppressor ammo.

Reavis was booked on fraud, drug and gun charges on $50,000 bail.

Last month, Cameron James Pettit, 28, was arrested for supplying Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.

Federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint in the Central District of California.

Authorities say the “Self-Care” rapper asked Petit for percocet, a powerful prescription painkiller containing oxycodone. 

But it was actually laced with fentanyl, a powerful drug that is fifty times more potent than heroin.

26-year-old Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018.

It was just two days after he asked for the drugs.

Investigators are in possession of dozens of text messages between Pettit and Miller.

The messages were sent in the months before the rapper’s death. Pettit and Miller allegedly discussed drugs numerous times.

Cops are also reportedly in possession of a damning text message Pettit sent to a friend after Miller died.

“Most likely I will die in jail,” he wrote.

Authorities believe the “Donald Trump” rapper died shortly after snorting counterfeit drugs which had been supplied to him by Pettit.

The coroner found fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his body. It was proven that Miller likely took an accidental overdose.

Pettit has now been charged with a federal count of distribution of a controlled substance, according to the DEA. He is now being held in custody until the trial and could face up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
