Stephen Andrew Walter, 49, was one of three men charged in Miller’s death in the Studio City section of Los Angeles in 2018.
Authorities say one of the guys who supplied the fentanyl-laced counterfeit oxycodone pills that led to Mac Miller’s death was sentenced to more than 17 years in jail on Monday. Stephen Andrew Walter was one of three individuals accused with the rapper’s murder in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Studio City in 2018. According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, he pleaded guilty last year to one count of fentanyl distribution.
According to the US Attorney’s Office, Walter instructed co-defendant Ryan Michael Reavis to hand the drugs over to co-defendant Cameron James Pettit, who subsequently sold them to Miller. Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, died of “mixed drug poisoning” caused by cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol, according to the Los Angeles County medical examiner-office.
