"Notably, the evidence demonstrates that Prince had no known Vicodin or fentanyl prescriptions", Metz said.
Metz also announced that while there will be no criminal charges filed following the investigation into the death of Prince, a $30,000 civil suit was settled with Dr. Schulenberg, a doctor who saw Prince before his death.
Dr Michael Todd Schulenberg allegedly wrote a prescription for oxycodone in the name of Prince's bodyguard, intending for the potent painkiller to go Prince.
No one will charged in relation to Prince's death, it has been confirmed. That has been the subject of two years of investigation by the Carver County Sheriff's Office, working with federal agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration. He turned to painkillers as a solution, which eventually led to his death from taking fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is manytimes more powerful than heroin. He was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, his Minnesota home and recording studio.
At a press conference Metz told reporters that despite an exhaustive investigation conducted by local, state and federal investigators, authorities were unable to find the source of counterfeit Vicodin pills laced with Fentanyl that claimed the life of the legendary musician. "We may never know". There is no doubt that actions of individuals around Prince will be criticized, questioned and judged in the days and weeks to come. "But suspicions and innuendo are categorically insufficient to support any criminal charges". Prosecutors also affirmed in a separate letter to Schulenberg's attorneys that the doctor is not a target of a federal criminal investigation.
But a law enforcement official close to the investigation told The Associated Press that the federal investigation is now inactive unless new information comes forward. He made no admission of facts nor liability and denies any such liability. Authorities say Schulenberg prescribed oxycodone for Prince, again under Johnson's name.
Last year, more than 42,000 people died and 2.1 million others abused opioids around the country, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
The report said the concentration of Fentanyl in Prince's blood was 67.8 micrograms per liter. Prince did not have any prescriptions for Fentanyl. There was no evidence the counterfeit pills were prescribed by a doctor. Investigators say Schulenberg agreed, and issued a one-time prescription of 15 Percocet pills. None of the medications found in Prince's home were prescribed to him, according to court documents unsealed in April 2017.
It's illegal for a doctor to write a prescription for someone under another person's name.
"I am mindful that is a most unusual and extraordinary case involving a world famous celebrity", Metz said. But six days before his death, an airplane Prince was travelling on made an emergency stop in Moline, Ill., because the Minnesota native had passed out. A friend of Prince reportedly reached out to a specialist to help the singer with his addiction, but the appointment was not scheduled until the day after he was found dead, on April 22. Andrew Kornfeld was carrying buprenorphine, a medication that can be used to help treat opioid addiction.
