Rumours have been confirmed. The autopsy investigating Price’s untimely death at the age of 57 has revealed an opioid overdose to be the cause.
Less than week before his death his private plane made an emergency stop on its return from an Atlanta concert. Prince was found unconscious and he was treated with a shot of Narcan, an antidote used for opioid overdoses.
Family doctor Michael Toodd Schulenberg treated Prince twice in the weeks before his death, and told investigators he prescribed medications to the singer.
