2 years after Prince's death, prosecutors will announce if charges are coming

Carver County Attorney Mark Metz says investigators believe that Prince didn't know he was taking counterfeit pills that contained fentanyl. However no criminal charges have been pressed because not enough evidence has been found locate the supplier of the fentanyl, which is 50 times stronger than heroin. "The counterfeit pills contain the potentially deadly opioid, fentanyl".

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. The icon was supplied bootleg prescription pills.

Remarkably, at the same time officials are announcing that there will be no charges over the drugs that actually killed Prince, officials also announced a civil settlement with a doctor who prescribed painkillers to Prince's associates, knowing the drugs would actually go to the musician. Schulenberg's attorney denied that and did not admit liability as part of the settlement, saying the prescription was not intended for Prince, the Associated Press reported.

In the Senate, Ranking Agriculture Committee Democrat Debbie Stabenow says the House version of the bill is "impossible to pass". The order calls for agencies to strengthen work requirements and to look for new ones.

"There is no reliable evidence showing how Prince obtained the counterfeit vicodin laced with fentanyl or who else may had a role in delivering the counterfeit vicodin to Prince", Metz said. Although these were not the drugs that killed Prince, the doctor who helped him get access to painkillers through third parties has agreed to pay $30,000 and subject himself to federal monitoring for two years.

Authorities in Minnesota on Thursday released thousands of videos and images taken from Paisley Park during the investigation into the death of the iconic singer.
