No Criminal Charges In Prince's Death By Overdose

The singer passed away in April 2016 after being found unresponsive in his Paisley Park mansion.

Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg examined Prince and took a blood sample and administered IV fluids. "Can you call me?" His passing dealt a massive blow to the music world, fans, and pop culture as he became one of the many iconic rock stars lost in 2016.

Surveillance footage showed the bodyguard Johnson at a Walgreens, picking up a prescription hours before Prince's death. Andrew Kornfeld was carrying buprenorphine, a medication that can be used to help treat opioid addiction.

While Paisley Park was bare on the outside, it was bright inside with massive photos of Prince, pastel walls and whimsical floors. His doctor was also seen arriving to find rescue units already on the scene.

Those words, found amid hundreds of pages of interviews between investigators and Prince's closest confidants, provide insight into just how much the man known for his energetic performances and larger-than-life personality was suffering.

Metz said the evidence shows Prince thought he was taking Vicodin, not fentanyl.

They added that they could not determine who had provided the powerful drug that killed the musician, who was then aged 57.

State prosecutors say they haven't determined the source of the fentanyl and no charges will be filed.

Schulenberg, who denies any liability, violated the Controlled Substances Act when he had illegally written a prescription for Prince in someone else's name, federal prosecutors said Thursday in official settlement documents obtained by ABC News.
