Drugs in Prince’s Possession Were Not Prescribed to Him, Court Documents Show
Court documents pertinent to the Prince investigations have been unsealed. In transcripts obtained by media houses from the court, it appears that none of the medication found in the pop star’s house were legally prescribed. When investigators went to Paisley Park, they found a whole bunch of medications, some hidden in envelopes and others tucked away in vitamin pills bottles. The drugs included sleeping pills as well as opioid pain killers. For a long time now, the US media has reported that the highly respected musician died after overdosing from an opioid known as fentanyl. The overdose was accidental, according to official reports.
Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg, who knew and treated Prince over the years, admitted that he provided prescriptions of Oxycodone to the late musician under a different name in order to protect his privacy. This is according to a search warrant, which was among the documents unsealed. However, the doctor’s attorney was quick to take a swipe at the reports, stating that Dr. Schulenberg had not provided opioids to Prince or someone whose intention was to give the drugs to Prince. The attorney was however quick to add that the doctor was talking to the investigation and was ready to help.
Prince’s death raised questions of foul play, and fans were shocked at its suddenness. According to the authorities, the investigation is still active, but no criminal charges have been brought against anyone as at the moment. It is still not known who supplied Prince with the powerful painkiller fentanyl, or how long he had been taking it. The Minneapolis Star Tribune fanned the flames last August when they announced that a source had told them that Prince took hydrocodone thinking that it was fentanyl because his bottles were labeled that way. This was seen as an eye-opener in what has been for a long time now been seen as a criminal investigation. It has been reported that government investigators did not find evidence of the existence of fentanyl in the bottles and stacks of pills that were recovered from Paisley Park.
Scientists say that fentanyl is without a doubt one of the strongest pain killers in the market, seeing it as 50 times more potent than morphine and 30 times the potency of heroin.
Prior to his death, Prince had been struggling with a series of withdrawal bouts, and this is considered evidence that he was taking drugs. On the eve of the fatal occurrence, his handlers had consulted an opioid specialist from California to help the singer with recovery.
