Another man arrested in connection with Mac Miller’s death

The second person linked to the rapper’s overdose.

On Tuesday, a man from Arizona was arrested in connection with Mac Miller’s death. He is the second person linked to the rapper’s fatal overdose last September.

According to The Arizona Republic, the authorities had issued a warrant for a search of Ryan Reavis’ home in Lake Havasu City as part of an active investigation into Miller’s death. Police reportedly discovered prescription pills, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, a physician’s prescription pad and several firearms—including “large amounts” of ammunition—in his residence.

The 36-year-old currently faces fraud, gun and drug charges, and is held on $50,000 bail. He was also recently transferred to Mohave County Sheriff’s office jail. Investigators, however, have not detailed Reavis’ connection to Miller’s death.


News of Reavis’ arrest comes weeks after another man, 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit, was taken into custody for allegedly supplying Miller with fentanyl-laced drugs right before his death. Pettit was charged with one count of distribution of a controlled substance on September 4. He is set to appear in court in October.

Miller’s father addressed Pettit’s arrest earlier this month at an event marking one year since the rapper’s passing. “They finally caught the motherfucker that sold him the drugs that killed him and [my family finds] some comfort in that,” Mark McCormick said.
