Prince Death Investigation: Pills Were Hidden Throughout Paisley Park
Court documents have now revealed that the medications found in Prince’s house after his death last year were not prescribed to him by his doctors. Based on the search warrants, the bottles of opioid painkillers were found in a number of places in Paisley Park. Numerous medications were found in envelopes and vitamin bottles, some of which were prescribed to the artist’s former drummer and friend, Kirk Johnson.
According to Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg, he had written down a prescription for Oxycodone for Prince using Johnson’s name to keep the mater private. The Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program search noted that Prince did not receive prescriptions under his name, the warrant stated.
In a statement released on Monday, Schulenberg’s lawyer stated that the doctor took an active part in the investigation and denied that he prescribed opioids to Prince. The information from these documents suggest how the criminal investigation into Prince’s overdose death will go.
Still, the circumstances surrounding the musician’s death remain unclear; there have been unanswered concerns especially among his family members and friends. These include questions about the person/s who supplied Prince with painkillers that caused his death. Was he aware of what he was consuming? What was the duration of his opioid pain medication intake?
According to the authorities, the investigation remains open especially with the fact that no suspect has been charged in relation to Prince’s death. As stated by the medical examiner’s office, the music artist’s death was caused by an accidental fentanyl overdose.
Last August, the Minneapolis Star Tribute referred to an insider who was familiar with the investigation, stating that the medications taken in by the investigators at Prince’s residence had been labeled as hydrocodone, although it was actually fentanyl. This medication has been deemed as the strongest painkiller available in the market. It is 50 times stronger than morphine and 30 times more potent compared to heroin.
