The world of hip-hop was shaken in early September 2018, by the death of rapper Mac Miller at just 26 years of age following an overdose. More than three years after this disappearance which still resonates like a blow with the hammer for the fans of the rapper, his principal dealer affirms not to know the contents of the pills which took the rapper during his appearance in court.
Two of three men plead guilty after Mac Miller death
Fans of rapper Malcolm James McCormick are still not healed from the great wound caused by the disappearance of their idol. Investigations revealed that the deadly pills that killed Mac contained fentanyl. Suppliers of the pills have since been identified and their legal proceedings have begun. In fact, in early November, two of the three suppliers involved, Ryan Michael Reavis and Stephen Andrew Walter, had pleaded guilty to charges of distributing fentanyl. But the third supplier, Cameron James Pettit, who was the one who sold the “blue” pills directly to Mac Miller, still has his case pending.

In a court hearing on Tuesday, Stephen Andrew Walter claimed he was unaware the pills contained fentanyl , although prosecutors disagreed: “I was charged with selling blue pills, little blue counterfeit oxycontin pills… and didn’t know what was in them. I didn’t know, for example, that there was fentanyl in it. But I say, yes, that I aided and encouraged the transaction. I’ve never met [Miller] before. I only spoke to Cameron [James Pettit]. I didn’t know what his intentions were with the pills. After seeing Ryan Reavis I didn’t know what to do with it, ”he said.
According to the allegations, Walter passed the pills to Ryan Michael Reavis , who then supplied them to Cameron James Pettit for sale to Mac. When asked if he wanted to change his initial not guilty plea to guilty, Reavis confirmed, “ Yes, thank you . Indeed, Pettit had made a deal with Mac that he would sell her cocaine, xanax and 10 oxycodone pills , which were the ones filled with fentanyl. However, the rapper died two days after the purchase.
