The man who pleads guilty to the death of rapper Mac Miller

LOS ANGELES (AP) – An Arizona man accused of supplying a dealer who sold Mac Miller the drugs that killed the rapper agreed to plead guilty to federal charges, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Ryan Michael Reeves, 38, admits to the sole charge of distributing fentanyl, the US Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles said in a statement.

Reavis knowingly supplied counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl to co-accused Cameron James Pettit, 30, from Los Angeles, pursuant to a plea agreement. Pettit sold the pills and other drugs to Miller, who, according to prosecutors, overdosed on it two days later.

Another defendant, 48-year-old Steven Andrew Walter from Los Angeles, last month agreed to plead guilty to one count of distributing fentanyl. Prosecutors said Reavis provided the pills to Pettit at Walter’s direction. Reeves and Walter are expected to announce their requests in the coming weeks.

The case against Pettit is still pending.

Reeves, who previously lived in West Los Angeles, moved to Lake Havasa, Arizona in 2019.

Miller’s assistant discovered the rapper was unresponsive at his Los Angeles home on September 7, 2018, and he was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Miller, a Pittsburgh native whose real name was Malcolm James Myers McCormick, was a beloved and respected figure among hip-hop fans. Circles, his sixth and final studio album, was released posthumously in 2020.
