Three drug dealers who sold rapper Mac Miller the narcotics that ended his life have been given a trial date.
Stephen Walter, Cameron Pettit, and Ryan Reavis stand accused of providing the cocaine and oxycodone to the “Self Care” rapper that killed him on September 7th, 2018. They are set to appear before a judge on November 16th.
Pettit was arrested on September 4th, 2019, for allegedly providing counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with the fentanyl to Miller. Reavis was the second suspect to be arrested, while Walter was the third. He was detained for allegedly sourcing the fake oxycodone that Pettit then sold to Miller.
Two days before his death at his San Fernando Valley home, Mac Miller purchased two grams of cocaine, five oxycodone pills, five Xanax pills, 10 Adderall pills, and five Norco pills supplied by Pettit. The rapper was located unresponsive in his bed in a “praying position” by his assistant, who told 911 operators that he was already “blue.” Miller had a 1/4-inch cut on the bridge of his nose, with blood flowing out of one nostril.
Police found an empty bottle of liquor on the nightstand next to Miller’s bed. A bottle of prescription pills was located in the bathroom. Miller also had a rolled-up $20 bill with a white powdery substance inside his right pocket when authorities responded to the scene. An autopsy confirmed that the 26-year-old succumbed to “mixed drug toxicity,” including oxycodone laced with fentanyl.
Not long after his death, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) opened an investigation into how Mac obtained the drugs.
Reavis’s lawyer, Correen Ferrentino, says that his client was hoping to have a separate trial due to only being an “alleged runner and minor participant, who claims to only have been involved in one transaction.” However, a judge did not buy it and ruled all three men be tried together.
Walker, Pettit, and Reavis have been held without bail since their arrests. All three men have pleaded not guilty.
