No Charges Filed in Prince Case


“I think he would have hated us all knowing so many of these little details.  He didn’t want anyone to know he was being prescribed anything.   He was so private.”   -Jodi

According to USA Today.

“He thought he was taking Vicodin and not fentanyl,” said Carver County Attorney Mark Metz at a press conference in Prince’s home county.

Metz, the top prosecutor in the suburban Minneapolis county that is home to Prince’s studio/home complex Paisley Park, told reporters the results of a “painstaking and thorough” two-year investigation found that Prince did not know he had become addicted to fentanyl and neither did anyone around him.

“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,” Metz said.

Metz said there was no evidence that the counterfeit pills, laced with fentanyl and found at Prince’s home, were prescribed by a doctor.
