CELEBRITY Deaths

Drug addiction has been the downfall of numerous celebrities for decades. The apparent ease in which illicit substances can be obtained only fuels the habit. Whether accidental or on purpose, a fatal fix is a final fix. The depressing roll call of stars who've succumbed to their dependency shows no sign of diminishing.

Mac Miller was one of many young stars to lose their lives to an overdose in recent years. He passed away in 2018 at the age of 26 after accidentally taking too much fentanyl, along with cocaine and alcohol. A man indicted in 2019 in relation to the death agreed to plead guilty to one count of distribution of fentanyl. The plea deal would see him sentenced to 17 years in prison. A second man has now pleaded guilty for his role in the fentanyl supply chain that contributed to Miller's death. 

Miller had attempted to purchase oxycodone, a highly-addictive prescription opioid, but was sold a counterfeit version that contained the deadly substance fentanyl. Both dealers have now confessed to knowingly selling fentanyl to the unwitting Miller, which was a major factor in his overdose.
