An autopsy determined he died of a Fentanyl overdose, but the documents do not indicate if authorities have pinpointed the source of the killer dose of the synthetic opioid. No one has been charged with a crime in connection with Prince's death.
The warrants say that controlled substances were found in bottles all over the Paisley Park complex, often in vitamin bottles. Some were in a suitcase labeled with a Prince alias, Peter Bravestrong.
Several medications were prescribed to Prince under the name of Kirk Johnson, his longtime bodyguard, assistant and personal friend. The doctor who prescribed them said he used Johnson's name "for Prince's privacy," one warrant says.
Perhaps the most toxic element in our celebrity culture is that after stars reach the pinnacle of fame and fortune, they usually reach a place where nobody is willing and able to tell them "no" and make it stick.
The result is usually a rapid diminishment in the quality of their work, drug addiction, early death, or all three.
