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

No Criminal Charges In Prince's Death By Overdose

Investigative files released as prosecutors closed their probe into Prince's death show that his closest confidants had grown increasingly anxious about his health in the days before he died — and that they tried to get him help.

Prince died on April 21, 2016 at the age of 57.

Pills and other items were found in Prince's home, Paisley Park, after deputies responded to a call that he'd been found dead April 21, 2016. It was announced this week that no charges would be made in relation to the music icon's death.

Surveillance footage showed the bodyguard Johnson at a Walgreens, picking up a prescription hours before Prince's death. Schulenberg provided a prescription for clonidine, a blood pressure medication used to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms and an antihistamine similar to Benadryl.

Not every single pill was tested, just a wide sample, so police would only say "they believe" all of the counterfeit pills contained fentanyl, the drug caused Prince's death.

"Therefore, without probable cause and no identified suspect, the Carver County Attorney's Office can not file any criminal charges involving the death of Prince". Carver County Attorney Mark Metz confirmed the news, stating during the press conference,"The evidence suggests that Prince took counterfeit Vicodin, containing fentanyl".

But none of his inner circle was able to give investigators the insight they needed to determine where Prince got the fentanyl that killed him.

Although Prince's doctor, Michael Schulenberg, paid a settlement for prescribing opiates for Prince in someone else's name, the drugs he administered did not lead to the singer's death.
