The prosecutors reportedly alleged that Walter was the one who indirectly gave Mac Miller’s alleged dealer Cameron James Pettit the lethal pills
Mac Miller died in 2018 due to an accidental overdose on counterfeit, fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills, and his family might finally get justice as the late rapper’s drug supplier has pleaded guilty in court. The individual identified as Stephen Andrew Walter agreed to a plea deal of 17 years in prison and five years supervised release.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Stephen Andrew Walter accepted his wrongdoing. The prosecutors reportedly alleged that Walter was the one who indirectly gave Mac Miller’s alleged dealer Cameron James Pettit the lethal Percocet tablets. Miller, 26, was found dead at his home in California on September 7, 2018. The ‘Self Care’ hitmaker had an accidental overdose that was later reported to be a mixture of alcohol, cocaine, and fentanyl.
Who was Mac Miller's drug dealer?
Mac Miller’s drug dealer has been identified as Stephen Andrew Walter. He was indicted in the case in 2019 along with two others namely Cameron James Pettit, 28, of West Hollywood, and Ryan Michael Reavis, 36 of Havasu, Arizona. Stephen Andrew Walter is reportedly 46-years-old. He along with the other two conspired to distribute the poisonous drugs to Mac Miller.
In 2019, US Attorney Nick Hanna said in a statement while announcing their indictment, as reported by Reuters, “It has become increasingly common for us to see drug dealers peddling counterfeit pharmaceuticals made with fentanyl. As a consequence, fentanyl is now the No. 1 cause of overdose deaths in the United States.”
Is Mac Miller’s drug dealer going to jail?
As mentioned earlier, Stephen Andrew Walter might have to go behind the bars for more than 20 years. He also faces a $1million fine in the case. Prosecutors in their latest report said that the trio gave the deadly pills to Mac Miller three days before he was found dead. They reportedly also supplied the multi-platinum rapper with cocaine and Xanax. According to the legal documents, Walter was very much aware that the pills he was handing out to Petit were deadly in nature. Petit then delivered the drugs to Mac Miller.
According to Page Six, an indictment showed that Petit was fine with supplying to Miller with 10 oxycodone pills that also go by the name of “blues” on the streets. However, he sold fake pills to the rapper ultimately costing him his life. According to a 2018 report of TMZ, the Pittsburg-based rapper and Ariana Grande's ex-boyfriend was found at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities were reportedly alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Miller’s home. Mac Miller had released his fifth album ‘Swimming’ in August 2018. He also made news for his split with Ariana Grande in May that year after they dated for two years.
