Minnesota prosecutor won't file charges in Prince's death

The obtained pictures come after authorities in Minnesota - where Paisley Park was located - announced on Thursday that no criminal charges would be filed in relation to the iconic musician's passing.

Before that visit, text messages from Johnson's phone revealed that he'd written to Michael T. Schulenberg, Prince's doctor, saying: "Prince is asking for fluids".

A state prosecutor on Thursday closed the case without criminal charges, saying evidence showed Prince unwittingly took a counterfeit painkiller that contained deadly fentanyl.

His former fiancée and music collaborator Sheila E. told ABC News in 2016, the day after his death, that he'd suffered many injuries from performing. Schulenberg provided a prescription for clonidine, a blood pressure medication used to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms and an antihistamine similar to Benadryl. I can drive over if it would help.

Images just released show Paisley Park as a colorful, eclectic space that was the beloved home of Prince, where the superstar had relaxed, recorded music and threw parties.

Metz is not filing charges against anyone in Prince's death, which was two years ago tomorrow. The bottle was found in Prince's bedroom and was photographed by police as part of the investigation into his death. The "Purple Rain" singer was under the impression that he was taking Vicodin but was actually taking counterfeit pills that were laced with fentanyl.

Federal prosecutors and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration alleged Schulenberg, a family physician who saw Prince at least twice before he died, violated the Controlled Substances Act when he wrote a prescription in the name of someone else on April 14, 2016.
