Cameron James Pettit, 28, of West Hollywood; Stephen Andrew Walter, 46, of Westwood; and Ryan Michael Reavis, 36, a former West Los Angeles resident who relocated to Lake Havasu, Arizona earlier this year, were charged in a three-count indictment.

All three were previously charged with drug-related offenses. Wednesday’s charges add the allegation that their drugs directly led to Miller’s death.

According to court documents obtained by, the three defendants gave Miller the deadly drugs about two days before he suffered a fatal overdose in Studio City on September 7, 2018.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner later determined that Miller died of mixed drug toxicity involving fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

According to the indictment, late on the night of September 4, Pettit agreed to supply Miller with 10 “blues” – a street term for oxycodone pills – as well as cocaine and the sedative Xanax.

But, instead of providing Miller with genuine oxycodone when he made the delivery during the early morning hours of September 5, Pettit allegedly sold McCormick counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl – a powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin.

Investigators believe that Miller died after snorting the counterfeit oxycodone pills.

“It has become increasingly common for us to see drug dealers peddling counterfeit pharmaceuticals made with fentanyl. As a consequence, fentanyl is now the number one cause of overdose deaths in the United States,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna. “These defendants allegedly continued to sell narcotics after (Miller’s) death with full knowledge of the risks their products posed to human life. We will continue to aggressively target drug dealers responsible for the spread of this dangerous chemical.”
