Autopsy finds rapper Mac Miller died from drugs and alcohol
A coroner's report indicates Rapper Mac Miller died from an accidental overdose caused by a combination of cocaine, alcohol, and the powerful opioid fentanyl.
The Los Angeles County coroner's report named Miller's cause of death as "mixed toxicity" of the three substances found in his system.
The 26-year-old Pittsburgh native, who frankly discussed his depression and addiction in his rhymes, died suddenly on Sept. 7. He was known to many as Ariana Grande's ex-boyfriend, but had a devoted following that included some of the biggest names in hip-hop.
The report states Miller's personal assistant, making a daily visit to Miller's home in the San Fernando Valley found him unresponsive on his bed at about 11:30 in the morning.
The assistant moved the body to the floor and performed CPR at the direction of a 911 operator. Paramedics soon arrived and Miller was declared dead 16 minutes after the initial 911 call.
