Following some uncertainty, Mac Miller's cause of death has now been revealed. The coroner ruled the official manner of death as an accident.

Miller, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, died in September at age 26. A rolled up $20 bill with white powdery residue was also found in his right pocket.

Following his passing, Mac's family and the Pittsburgh Foundation formed what's called The Mac Miller Circles Fund, a charity meant to help "underserved communities", cope with drug abuse, through means of "exploration in the arts and community building". She posted an affectionate video of him on her Instagram page weeks after his death, and released a new song, Thank U, Next, on Saturday that mentioned Miller along with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, her fiance until recently.
