The official cause of death of legendary singer, Prince who died on April 21, has been released. The singer who was found unresponsive in his Minnesota home is said to have died of an opioid overdose.
A Criminal Investigation was launched into the cause of Prince’s death in May by the U.S. Attorney’s office and Drug Enforcement using blood samples given that the singer was cremated a few days after his death.
Dr. Howard Kornfield, a doctor who specialises in the treatment of opioid addiction and saw the “purple rain” crooner twice before his death has been questioned by detectives while his son Andrew Kornfield remains a person of interest in the ongoing investigation as he reportedly flew into Minnesota with a backpack full of synthetic opiates, and was in the singer’s home when Prince died.
As at the time of this report, it is unknown if any suspect has been arrested.
