Probe into Prince's opioid death brings no criminal charges

Prince memorial

Following the announcement, the Carver County sheriff's office in Minnesota has released 15GB of data - the "vast majority" of evidence - to the public under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act.

Prosecutors in the Minnesota county where Prince died will announce a decision Thursday on criminal charges following a two-year investigation into the musician's death from an accidental fentanyl overdose.

Prince, 57, was found dead at his Paisley Park home and recording studio complex near Minneapolis on April 21, 2016.

ABC News reports that the icon died after accidentally overdosing on counterfeit painkillers.

Trump used a fake name to get on the Forbes 400 list
The tactic landed him a place on the Forbes list he hadn't earned - and led to future accolades, press coverage and deals. The magazine instead published that Trump and his father Fred Trump were worth $200 million each.

But the investigation, which included searches of Prince's computer, mobile phone records of his friends and interviews with associates, determined that Prince suffered from severe pain for a number of years and numerous painkillers were found in his residence, according to Metz.

Prosecutors add that no one will be criminally charged in the singer's death.

However, Dr Michael Schulenberg, the doctor who had treated the superstar just before his death, has agreed to pay US$30,000 (S$39,000) to settle a federal civil violation for an illegal prescription.

The settlement was made by Schulenberg to avoid a trial. Officials said the doctor's Percocet pills were not responsible for Prince's death.

It's (another) boy! MI family with 13 sons welcomes No. 14
The well-known Kent County couple with 13 sons has welcomed another baby into the family and - you guessed it - it's another son. He said they expect to work on choosing a name for the baby as soon as Wednesday evening.

The prescribed Percocet is not what killed Prince, Metz said. "The counterfeit pills contain the potentially deadly opioid, fentanyl".

The music megastar, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson, died at his estate in Chanhassen, Minn., in 2016 after unknowingly taking a counterfeit Vicodin pill that actually contained the far more potent opioid fentanyl, officials announced Thursday.

Metz also said that due to a lack of evidence, it was impossible to know how Prince obtained the counterfeit drugs and who may have played a role in helping him possess them.
