New details this morning about Prince’s death.
Newly unsealed court documents are revealing his struggle with opiate addiction and how he tried to keep it a secret.
Nearly a year since his death, and we are learning what investigators found inside Prince’s home the day he died.
The unsealed search warrants paint a picture of just how bad his addiction was.
Investigators found a sizeable amount of narcotics located inside, not in prescription bottles, but hidden in vitamins, Aspirin, and other over the counter pain relief bottles.
They say they were all over the estate, including Prince’s dressing room, the mirror room, and the purple rain room.
Some pills were also found in a suitcase with a name tag, Peter Bravestrong, an alias Prince reportedly used when he traveled. Also found in the suitcase were hand written lyrics to his 1987 hit “You got the look.”
Investigators say most of the drugs were prescribed under the name of his long- time friend and drummer, Kirk Johnson, and the doctor who prescribed the drugs told investigators that he put the prescriptions in Johnson’s name for Prince’s privacy.
What’s still unclear is where Prince got the Fentanyl, the drug that ultimately took his life.
Investigators have been scouring his computers, email, and phone records for any clues, but as of this morning, no answer to that question.
