The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office released the toxicology results Monday and revealed Miller died from "mixed drug toxicity".

Mac Miller died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, according to the coroner.

Miller, 26, was found unresponsive at his Los Angeles-area home on September 7 and was declared dead soon after.

Additional details have been published by TMZ this morning (November 5), including the fact that Miller's unresponsive body was found on his bed, in the praying position.

Miller's assistant agreed, saying Miller was feeling positive about his projects, but said he had a tendency to slip into drug binges, and had such an episode three days before the one that left him dead. A rolled up $20 bill with white powdery residue was also found in his right pocket.

'Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26, ' it read. "Everyone who he worked with was aware that he was delicate, but thought it was because of the new album, nerves, nothing like this". He had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, but his mother told investigators he had not overdosed in the past to her knowledge, or been hospitalized for any reason. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.
