Prince's sister troubled by death investigation

Prince's sister troubled by death investigation

ABC News reports that the icon died after accidentally overdosing on counterfeit painkillers. "In all likelyhood, Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfit pill that could kill him", said Carver County Attorney Mark Metz. "We simply do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime related to Prince's death". "The counterfeit pills contain the potentially deadly opioid, fentanyl".

Prince was found unresponsive on April 21, 2016, after a fentanyl overdose.

Jack Kurtz/ZUMA Press/NewscomPop legend Prince died of a fentanyl overdose in 2016, probably because he bought what he thought was Vicodin on the black market.

Investigators were unable to identify who gave Prince the pills laced with fentanyl, but they said they did not think the drugs were given to the star with the intent to kill or harm him.

Metz said Thursday that Schulenberg prescribed Percocet to Prince shortly before he died, but put the painkiller prescription in the name of Prince's bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, in order to protect the music superstar's privacy. Officials said the doctor's Percocet pills were not responsible for Prince's death.

One of Prince's sisters is expressing disappointment about the way the investigation into her brother's death was handled.

In a separate development, a doctor who treated the musician in his final weeks has been fined for allegedly writing a prescription knowing it would be used by another person, the U.S. Attorney for Minnesota said in a statement. Schulenberg's attorney denied that and did not admit liability as part of the settlement, saying the prescription was not intended for Prince, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities in Minnesota on Thursday released thousands of videos and images taken from Paisley Park during the investigation into the death of the iconic singer.
