Prince’s autopsy revealed that the 5ft 3in singer weighed just 112lbs at the time of his death, and that he was dressed entirely in black (cap, pants, shirt, socks and boxer briefs) when his unresponsive body was discovered on April 21 inside an elevator at his Paisley Park estate just outside Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was announced yesterday that no criminal charges would be filed in the death of Prince, and tomorrow marks two years after he lost his life following an alleged overdose.
The investigation did reveal that Prince himself had no idea the pills contained Fentanyl, with officials stating that the singer thought he was taking Vicodin in the days and weeks leading up to his death.
This would suggest that neither Prince or those close to him knew that he was addicted to Fentanyl at the time of his death. This is hard to believe. Someone knew or knows who was subscribing these pills to prince? Someone on his staff had to know he was buying Fentanyl laced pills, which is said to be deadlier than cocaine.
Prince died of a self-administered Fentanyl overdose according to an autopsy report released by the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.
The 57-year-old singer’s death was ruled an accident, and the only listed cause on the medical examiner’s report was ‘Fentanyl toxicity’.
‘To actively charge a crime requires probable cause and a reasonable likelihood of conviction. The bottom line is that we simply do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime related to Prince’s death,’ said Mark Metz, the Carver County attorney on Thursday.
Authorities have yet to determine how prince got his hands on the highly addictive drug fentanyl. The question remains: Who Killed Prince?
