Prince died after accidentally overdosing on fentanyl

Prince was killed by an accidental overdose of fentanyl – the same powerful painkiller found at the house where Michael Jackson died.

The medical examiner in charge of the case confirmed tonight that the Purple Rain singer had binged on the syn­­thetic opiate that is more potent than morphine.

It is often used to treat people who have developed a tolerance to milder drugs.

Reports that Prince had AIDS or HIV were quashed by Dr A. Quinn Strobl, who did the autopsy. She reported “no other significant conditions”.

The 57-year-old was found dead at his home in Minnesota on April 21, a day before he was scheduled to meet a doctor in an attempt to kick an opioid addiction.



It was reported at the time he had been abusing the less-powerful percocet, which he took for chronic hip pain.

A police source said: “The test results beg more questions than they give answers.

“Although investigators have kept an open mind on what caused his death there has been a long-held suspicion it was drugs.

“Now it has been determined it was fentanyl the trail begins in earnest to find who supplied them. Was it through legal or illegal means? Was it a doctor or a dealer who was fuelling his habit?”

A police search of Prince’s property found several drugs.

It is not clear if he actually did, although pictures emerged of him outside a ­pharmacy that night.

Addiction spec­ialist Dr Howard Kornfeld was due to see Prince on April 22 but was detained and sent his son instead.

It was Andrew Kornfeld who made the 911 call when Prince was found dead.
