Unsealed Warrants Reveal Painkillers Prescribed For Prince Under Different Name

It’s been nearly a year since the shocking death of rock music legend Prince. Last April, the star was found unresponsive and alone in an elevator in his Paisley Park mansion in Minnesota. Autopsy results revealed the reclusive star died from an accidental overdose, and questions and rumors have been swirling around ever since. As Yahoo shares, we’ve gained some more clarity into what went down thanks to some unsealed warrants.

Although Prince was thought to be a practitioner of clean living, it turns out that he had been struggling with a serious opioid addiction. The overdose stemmed from his use of the drug fentanyl, which is a synthetic drug that is 50 times more powerful than heroin. Investigators are still combing through things to determine where he may have gotten the fentanyl that proved to be his ultimate undoing, but some new revelations show that it wasn’t the only drug he was using.

Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg, a Minnesota doctor with offices close to Prince’s home, has admitted to prescribing oxycodone for the star, and he also made another startling admission according to one affidavit. The doctor prescribed the drug for Prince in the name of one of his associates "for Prince's privacy." While the doctor may have done that due to the star’s request, it still presents a stunning lack of judgment on his part.

In the aftermath of Prince’s death, it’s becoming quite clear that he was battling addiction for some time. The ultimate responsibility for that lies with Prince himself, but for a licensed physician to allegedly continue feeding the addiction just boggles the mind. Sounds like red flags should have been raised a number of times with the doctor, as well as Prince’s associates, friends, and family.

It remains unclear if criminal charges will be warranted in Prince’s death. It’s a truly sad end to a memorable life, but he will be remembered as a member of rock music royalty forever.
