Mac Miller's autopsy confirms his cause of death
On September 27 Mac Miller passed away - now, his autopsy has confirmed how he died
Mac Miller, born Malcolm James McCormick, died in September but his autopsy was just officially made public November 5. The autopsy reveals that Miller died from an accidental overdose on fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.
The autopsy calls the combination a "multiple drug toxicity." The amount of each of the drugs inside of Miller's body was not enough to kill him, but the combination of the drugs is what became lethal to the 26-year-old rapper. Miller's death came mere months after his breakup with his girlfriend of 2 years, Ariana Grande, and weeks after his latest album "Swimming" which was presumably about Grande.
Grande mentioned after their breakup that his drug addiction was partly to blame, saying on Twitter, “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s— together is a very major problem.”
Since Miller’s death, Grande has posted very loving things about him and in her latest single, “Thank U, Next” she refers to Miller as an “angel.”
Drug abuse is becoming a serious issue in the United States where, in 2017 alone, approximately 72,000 deaths were caused by drug overdose - with nearly 30,000 of those deaths caused by fentanyl (synthetic opioids).
