Two of Mac Miller‘s dealers pleaded guilty to distributing drugs to the late rapper. According to multiple news outlets, Stephen Andrew Walter and Ryan Michael Reavis each confessed to their role in the transaction that indirectly led to the emcee’s death.
On Sept. 4, 2018, Walter instructed Reavis to deliver oxycodone pills to Cameron Pettit. During Tuesday morning’s (Nov. 30) court hearing, Miller’s supplier confessed to giving the substances to Reavis but said that he was unaware of the pills’ contents.
“I was charged with selling blue pills, little blue counterfeit oxycontin pills … and I didn’t know what was in them,” Walter told Judge Otis D. Wright. “I didn’t know, like, fentanyl was in it. But I do say, yes, that I aided and abetted the transaction. He added that he’d never met Miller and was unaware of Petitt’s plans with pills. “I didn’t know what his intentions were with the pills,” he said. “After he saw Ryan Reavis, I didn’t know what he was going to do with them.”
Petitt, who had agreed to give Miller cocaine, Xanax and 10 “blues” aka oxycodone pills, sold the drugs to the rapper, who passed away two days after the transaction. While Walter claimed he didn’t know the contents of the pills, Reavis, who remained mum during the hearing, admitted that he knew they contained either fentanyl or some other controlled substance. Following an investigation into Miller’s death, it was confirmed he passed away after ingesting a mix of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.
Walter, Reaves and Pettit, who has pleaded not guilty, all face up to 20 years in federal prison, a lifetime of supervised release, a $1 million fine and other court fees for distributing a controlled substance to Miller. They are all scheduled to stand trial next year.
