Pettit was arrested in September along with Stephen Walter and Ryan Reavis. In private messages sent before his arrest, Pettit expressed concern about an imminent arrest in connection with Miller's death. "I think I should probably not post anything... just to be smart," he said before expressing concern that he could "die in jail."
