In early-September 2019, a year after Mac Miller’s death due to drug overdose, authorities in LA arrested a low-level drug dealer named Cameron James Pettit.
Accused of selling the “Self Care” rapper oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl, Pettit and his associate Mia Johansson got charged for their connection with Mac Miller’s death upon their arrest.
Charges Against Cameron James Pettit
On 5th September 2018, Cameron James Pettit delivered the pills to Mac Miller through associate and a sex worker Mia Johansson, better known as Carolina Cortez.
Two days later, Mac Miller passed away. Autopsy reports showed a combination of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol contributed to the overdose.
For his involvement, the prosecutors in LA charged Pettit with the distribution of controlled substances. If found guilty of the charges, the Hollywood Hills man could see 20 years in jail sentence.
As evidence, authorities provided Instagram messages that Pettit sent out to his friends. One of which read,
“I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.”
“Nothing has happened yet…but it might.”
Fearing suspicion, Pettit eventually deleted his old Instagram handle and created a new one.
