Prince‘s death saga is starting to feel all too familiar.
The singer’s criminal death investigation is in full swing, and authorities are scrutinizing his doctors—just as it happened in Michael Jackson‘s death investigation. According to reports, authorities are taking a hard look at Prince’s primary physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and renowned addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld, to determine if either of them crossed the legal line by writing prescriptions to Prince or otherwise facilitating the singer’s acquisition of meds.
Sources revealed that the FBI, the DEA and the Carver County District Attorney’s Office are all on the case. Dr. Schulenberg was at Prince’s home when his body was discovered, but says he was only there to inform Prince of some test results. Dr. Kornfeld’s son was also at the house with a backpack full of synthetic opiates to treat addiction.
Interestingly, Dr. Schulenberg has been MIA from his med clinic since Prince died in April, but Dr. Kornfeld is still actively practicing in Marin County, CA.
No word on how long the investigation will take, but we’ll keep you updated.
