Prince death investigation documents: Opioids found in several places in Paisley Park

Posted April 18, 2017

The "Purple Rain" hitmaker tragically passed away on April 21 previous year aged 57 after an accidental Fentanyl overdose, and reports from the search warrants released by Minnesota authorities, which have been obtained by TMZ, have revealed the music legend's home was laden with pills prescribed to Peter Bravestrong, which was believed to be the alias Prince went under to maintain his privacy.

The legendary musician was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park home on April 21 past year.

Schulenberg is the same doctor who was at Paisley Park on April 21 (the day of Prince's death) when deputies arrived on scene and the same doctor who admitted to authorities, he prescribed Oxycodone for Prince on April 14, the day before he overdosed while returning from a show in Atlanta, forcing his plane into an emergency landing. He went to Paisley Park on April 21 - the day Prince was found - to drop off test results, he said.

A Minnesota doctor is disputing that he ever prescribed opioids to Prince or to anyone else with the intent they be given to Prince.

According to the warrants, authorities searched his estates as well as looking through the star's mobile phone records and email accounts.

Some information may be revealed on Monday when search warrants executed by local authorities, likely including one from the first search of Paisley Park, are due to be unsealed.

Prince did not have a cellphone, and authorities searched multiple email accounts that belonged to him, as they tried to determine who he was communicating with and where he got the drugs that killed him, according to the search warrants.

As for Dr. Schulenberg, he left his job at North Memorial Medical Center almost three weeks after Prince's death. They've also said there was an attempt to get Prince into rehab before he died.

One key figure investigators want to interview is Kirk Johnson, a longtime drummer for Prince and the estate manager at Paisley Park who was among those who discovered the musician's body.

Johnson had contacted Schulenberg to help treat Prince's hip pain.

The documents suggest Prince was struggling with an addiction to prescription opioids.

But he "put the prescription in Kirk Johnson's name for Prince's privacy".

June 2, 2016: The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office releases a report that says Prince died from an accidental, self-administered overdose of the powerful drug fentanyl.

According to the search warrants, investigators found several pills labelled Watson 853 - the identifier for generic hydrocodone-acetaminophen.

The official cause of the 57-year-old's death was an overdose of the opioid Fentanyl.

Schulenberg also told investigators that on April 15, he had prescribed Prince oxycodone, also in Johnson's name. He and five others were searching for Prince when Kornfeld said he heard a scream.

No one has been charged in connection with his death, but authorities say the investigation is still open and active. First responders revived him with two doses of a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

However, the medications were not prescribed to the musician under his own name.
