No one will be charged in the accidental overdose of musical artist Prince, a Minnesota county prosecutor announced at a Thursday press conference held nearly exactly two years after the singer's untimely death at age 57. Though it had been known for some time that Princehad died of an accidental overdose of the synthetic opiate fentanyl, the confidential report revealed that the concentration of the painkiller was "exceedingly high". Metz insists there is nothing to suggest Prince knew he was ingesting the powerful opioid.
Search warrants unsealed about a year after Prince died showed that authorities searched his home, cellphone records of associates and his email accounts to try to determine how he got the drug.
The county attorney says despite Schulenberg's decision to issue an illegal prescription there is no evidence the Percocet prescribed had anything to do with Prince's death, or that either Schulenberg or Johnson has ties to the counterfeit Vicodin that killed him. A friend of Prince reportedly reached out to a specialist to help the singer with his addiction, but the appointment was not scheduled until the day after he was found dead, on April 22.
Researchers found signs that Prince suffered from distress and that countless of varied sorts of pain killers were seen according to Metz.
Metz said that a lack of evidence led to them not filling charges in the case.
"The fact that criminal charges are not brought certainly does not mean that some person or persons associated with Prince did not assist or enable Prince in obtaining the counterfeit Vicodin", he said.
The source of the fentanyl dose that killed the singer is still unknown.
