Mac Miller death investigation triggers third arrest

A third man has been arrested amid an investigation into the death of the late Mac Miller.

A spokesperson from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles tells ET that Stephen Walter was arrested on Monday in a drug trafficking conspiracy related to the death of Miller. Walter will be held without bond. Court documents obtained by ET allege that Walter is connected to Cameron James Pettit, who was arrested earlier this month on a charge of providing counterfeit drugs to Miller just days before the rapper died last September of an overdose. Miller was 26 years old.

Cops allege that Pettit contacted Walter on Sept. 4, 2018, and asked for 10 Percocet pills, which Miller had requested in a text. Cops allege that Walter then sent a runner to Pettit with the pills, and that Pettit delivered them to Miller on Sept. 5.

The runner was allegedly Ryan Reavis, who was arrested on Wednesday. According to a press release from the Lake Havasu City Police Department, the 36-year-old was arrested after the Drug Enforcement Administration exercised a search warrant and during the search, found a physician’s prescription pad, prescription-only pills, a usable amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. In addition, police say, a 9mm pistol, two shotguns, a personally manufactured firearm suppressor and large amounts of ammunition were also found and seized inside the residence. Reavis was arrested and charged with fraudulent schemes and artifices, possession of marijuana, possession of prescription drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, weapons misconduct by a prohibited possessor and manufacture of a prohibited weapon.

I am beyond heartbroken over Malcolm’s death. He was a good friend and was wonderful to my sister. He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation center where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs alcohol and medications I was taking, when I couldn’t imagine living without them. It was the place where I found the community of support that showed me that living life without drugs was a possibility and I would never have discovered that if it weren’t for Malcolm. I remember when I would get 30, 60, 90 days clean and Malcom would be there with a gift and a card and words of encouragement... telling me that he knew how hard getting sober is and how impressed he was that I was succeeding. Addiction is a TERRIBLE disease… many people are suffering from addiction like I am and many many of them are losing. Those of us who are struggling with addiction must stay strong. We must continue to work HARD on ourselves every single day and help each other. Our disease is strong but WE ARE STRONGER and I vow to work every moment of my life to keep myself sober so that i may be there for others. This is a difficult road but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TRUDGE IT ALONE. To anyone who needs help, help is there. you just need to have the courage to ask, which I know can be EXTREMELY difficult... but when you do I GUARANTEE support will be there. do not be ashamed if you are losing the battle against addiction, shame feeds the disease, humility defeats it. please ask for help! you are NOT ALONE! I am here... and I will continue to be here... for you... Malcom my friend, you will be dearly missed. and I know you will be looking down on me from heaven, proudAF for every day I live my life clean and sober... 453 days and counting... Thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙏💖 AA: (212) 870-3400 NA: (818) 773-9999 Suicide Prevention Lifeline: :800-273-9255

Meanwhile, Pettit was charged with one count of distribution of a controlled substance. According to the affidavit in the criminal complaint, Pettit is the one who allegedly sold Miller the counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl -- a "powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin."

Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was found dead on Sept. 7 at his San Fernando Valley home. The L.A. County Coroner's Office released its report on Miller's death last November and said that the rapper died from "mixed drug toxicity," noting fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol. His death is categorized as an accident.

Following Pettit's arrest, Miller's father, Mark McCormick, attended an event in his son’s honor in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on the anniversary of his death. He acknowledged Pettit's arrest, telling fans in a fan-captured video, "So they finally caught the motherf**ker that sold him the drugs that killed him. And we find some comfort in that."
