None of a pills found during hostess Prince’s estate in Minnesota had been prescribed to him, justice annals show

Investigators found “narcotic medications” in Prince’s estate in Minnesota after he died of an opioid overdose final year, some in vitamin bottles, though zero had been prescribed to a cocktail star, according to justice annals expelled Monday.


The newly unblocked hunt warrants in Carver County, Minn., do not uncover where Prince Rogers Nelson might have gotten a absolute opioid fentanyl he took before he was found passed during his Paisley Park estate outward Minneapolis during a age of 57 on Apr 21, 2016.

No arrests have been done in tie with a ongoing investigation, that is being conducted by a Carver County Sheriff’s Office and a Drug Enforcement Administration.

Investigators’ annals contend Prince got his painkillers by others, many recently with a assistance of a internal doctor, Michael Schulenberg, who had started treating Prince in a month before his death.

On Apr 14 — a day Prince fainted during a private moody from Atlanta to Minneapolis and had to be regenerated from an opioid overdose — Schulenberg wrote an oxycodone medication dictated for a entertainer, though he prescribed a drugs to Prince’s crony and bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, “for Prince’s privacy,” a alloy told investigators, according to a aver application.

The annals also prove that a state’s trusted medication monitoring database, that helps pharmacists ensure for drug abuse, showed no prescriptions underneath Prince’s name.

Schulenberg’s attorney, Amy S. Conners, pronounced in a matter Monday that a alloy did not provide Johnson as a medication pass-through for Prince and pronounced he has cooperated with investigators.

“Dr. Schulenberg never directly prescribed opioids to Prince, nor did he ever allot opioids to any other chairman with a vigilant that they would be given to Prince,” Conners pronounced in a statement.

Johnson’s attorney, F. Clayton Tyler, pronounced in a matter that his customer “did not secure nor supply a drugs that caused Prince’s death.”

The hostess didn’t have a unchanging doctor.

“His many new hit before Dr. Schulenberg was several doctors his managers would set adult for him before a uncover so that Prince could perceived a ‘B12 [vitamin] injection’ to ‘feel better’ before behaving for a show,” according to a unblocked records.

The annals — that embody requests to seize computer, email and cellphone annals associated to Prince — also fact some of a private life of a reserved megastar who refused to use a cellphone after his private information was hacked, who emailed regulating a manager’s name as his pseudonym and who trafficked underneath a name “Peter Bravestrong” when on a road.

The day before his death, Prince had sought a assistance of a California-based obsession treatment doctor, Howard Kornfeld, who couldn’t go on such brief notice and instead sent his son, Andrew, 26, who was not a stable doctor, to weigh Prince for probable entrance to his father’s diagnosis clinic.

Andrew Kornfeld had arrived during a skill with Johnson and Prince’s assistant, Meron Bekure, when Prince’s physique was discovered.

“Andrew pronounced he listened a roar and ran down a gymnasium and celebrated Prince fibbing on his left side in a elevator,” states one of a newly unblocked justice records, that pronounced that Prince lived during a Paisley Park estate alone and though a confidence guard.

Schulenberg arrived during a skill a same morning.

Investigators were not confident with some of a answers they got from a organisation during Prince’s estate. “Interviews with those who were during Paisley Park a morning Prince was found defunct have supposing unsuitable and, during times, paradoxical statements,” one request stated.

Johnson told investigators he didn’t know Prince was addicted, according to a warrants, that note that Johnson had famous Prince given a 1980s. He was also one of a few people with untrammeled entrance to Paisley Park, where “there was a large volume of analgesic drugs … in several tablet containers via a residence,” one aver stated.

Johnson had picked adult several non-opioid drugs for Prince a day before a entertainer’s death, and his name was found on some of a bottles in Prince’s estate, a annals said.

Investigators also pronounced they took a trek belonging to Andrew Kornfeld that contained medications, kept in cosmetic bags and envelopes, that he didn’t have a permit to distribute. They enclosed buprenorphine, a diagnosis drug for soporific addicts, and an anti-nausea suppository. Investigators asked him what he was doing with a drugs.

Kornfeld “admits he brought them of his possess accord. He pronounced he got them from his possess medicine cabinet, though he denied he dictated to use them,” one newly unblocked record states. “He pronounced he did not consider about it, he only had them, and now admits it was not a really good idea.”

Investigators kept reason of Kornfeld’s trek as probable evidence. Kornfeld has not been indicted of wrongdoing.

Kornfeld’s attorney, William Mauzy, pronounced that Kornfeld is stable by Minnesota’s Good Samaritan law, that gives shield for drug possession if someone provides assist to a plant of an overdose.

“I consider a unsealing of a hunt [warrant] creates it extravagantly transparent again that Andrew had zero to do with Prince’s death,” Mauzy said, observant that Kornfeld had never met or talked to Prince. “He flew from San Francisco, was met by Prince representatives, went to Paisley Park, and sadly Prince looked like he was experiencing a drug overdose, and [he] called 911 as a obliged chairman would.”
