No Criminal Charges In Prince's Death

  • Authorities To Release Findings From Investigation Of Prince's Death

Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is believed to be 50 times stronger than heroin.

Search warrants a year ago revealed that prescription drugs were found all over Prince's house, some of them in the name of a confidant who claimed that he hadn't known that Prince was addicted to pain pills. He added that there is also no evidence to support a sinister motive, intent, or a conspiracy to kill Prince.

Three editors met with Prince at his Paisley Park home in Minneapolis, and a deal was locked down weeks before he died in April 2016, Newberg said on Variety's "Strictly Business" podcast. According to The New York Times, Prince was dealing with an opioid addiction - even hiding these narcotic painkillers in bottles of aspirin and other over-the-counter drug containers. "Dr. Schulenberg affirms his previous statement that he did not prescribe opiates to any patient with the intention that they be given to Prince".

Then, last month, investigators from the Carver County Sheriff's Office presented their findings to Mark Metz, the Carver County attorney. "We had to do it because I knew he would not want to meet individually with editors". Because of that, there will be no criminal charges filed in the case.

Never-before-released audio and video of Prince will be featured during the concert. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the federal case remains open.

He will pay a $30,000 fine and have his written prescriptions monitored for violating the Controlled Substance Act. The doctor is not facing criminal charges and his attorney says he had no role in Prince's death.

"Dr. Schulenberg chose to settle with the United States regarding alleged civil claims in order to avoid the expense, delay, and unknown outcome of litigation". In one of the letters released Thursday, authorities said Schulenberg was not the target of a criminal investigation.

Authorities have been investigating the death of the Purple Rain singer for two years, terming it an "active homicide investigation", according to affidavits and search warrants unsealed in 2017. He gave Prince intravenous fluids, then wrote out prescriptions for vitamin D and anti-nausea pills. Buyers often don't know who they're dealing with or what's in the drugs they purchase, she said.

It's been two years since the death of Minnesota and cultural icon Prince, but his legacy is living on in the state thanks to many celebrations of his life and music. Documents released by authorities previous year paint a picture of a man struggling with an addiction to prescription opioids and withdrawal, and they also show there were efforts to get him help. The papers also show there were efforts to get him help.

Schulenberg had prescribed the Percocet to Prince's bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, as a cover for Prince. Metz said Johnson contacted Schulenberg, who once again treated Prince with fluids, and drew blood for lab testing. Schulenberg did so, Metz said.

"He continues to deny that he had anything to do with the death of his close friend, Prince", Tyler said in a statement obtained by CNN affiliate WCCO.

When Prince collapsed on the return flight home that made an emergency stop in Moline, Ill., first responders revived Prince with anti-narcotic treatment Naloxone, often known by its brand name, Narcan.
