A second arrest was made in connection with Mac Miller’s death. On September 24, police found a man in Phoenix in possession of drugs and firearms, along with a doctor’s prescription pad. This is the second person found and arrested this month in association with the rapper’s death.
According to NBC News, Ryan Reavis was arrested on fraud, drug and gun possession charges. “While investigating Mac Miller's death, police found Ryan Reavis in possession of a doctor's prescription pad, prescription-only pills, drug paraphernalia and marijuana,” the news site stated. Additionally, “A 9 mm pistol, two shotguns, a handmade firearm suppressor, and ‘large amounts of ammunition’ were also seized from the home,” according to police.
Ryan is being held on a $50,000 cash bond at the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. Fox News reported that he has not entered a plea, and police did not know if he hired an attorney who could be asked for comment.
This is the second arrest made in connection with Mac’s death. On September 4, the DEA’s Fusion Task Force and Los Angeles Police Department arrested Cameron James Pettit. Cameron, 28, allegedly supplied Mac with fake oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.
The “Self Care” rapper was found face down and unresponsive on September 7, 2018 at home in Studio City. Mac was described as, “having suffered blunt trauma to his head, with a quarter-inch abrasion on the bridge of his nose, and blood in his right nostril.”
He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Pittsburgh native whose real name was Malcolm James Myers McCormick was 26 years old. In November 2018, his cause of death was revealed to be an accidental drug overdose of cocaine and fentanyl.
In the months leading up to his death, Mac had a very public breakup from his girlfriend at the time Ariana Grande in May 2018. Not long after their breakup, the “Weekend” rapper was arrested for drunk driving and fleeing the scene.
The day before he died, the “Jet Fuel” rapper was featured in an explosive Vulture interview, where he opened up about working through anxiety and depression, along with how playing music helped curb it.
