LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 28: Mac Miller performs on the Camp Stage during day 1 of Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2017 at Exposition Park on October 28, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

A coroner has ruled rapper Mac Miller's death an accidental overdose due to a combination of drugs and alcohol. It is being reported that the mix of all three drugs, not the amount of each, triggered his cardiac arrest. The manner of death was certified an accident.

Miller died in September 2018 and was found in his San Fernando Valley home. "Authorities were called and McCormick was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:51 a.m". The office said alcohol also contributed to his death. While used to treat severe pain, like that experienced by cancer patients, illegally made fentanyl is often mixed with heroin or cocaine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It will be led by Assistant Attorney General John Demers, who heads the National Security Division of the Department of Justice. A Justice Department spokesman said the defendants were served summonses in Taiwan and that none is in US custody.

The report said that Miller's assistant found him unresponsive on his bed in a "praying position" and was kneeling forward with his face on his knees.

Mac struggled with substance abuse over the past few years and that is what reportedly led to Ariana Grande ending her relationship with the rapper earlier this year.

It has been confirmed that the popular artist died from a drug overdose. Participating acts included Chance the Rapper, John Mayer and SZA. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.
