Nearly a year ago the world was shocked to hear that the pop icon, Prince, had passed away. He was just 57 years old when he died of a drug overdose. There were many speculations as to who, what, and how this could have happened, but today some telling information was released.
It appears Prince had been using alias names so he could be prescribed a surplus of prescription medications. One of the names was Peter Bravestrong. Peter was a common alias Prince used while traveling. Also, he had meds written out and filled for the name Kirk Johnson. Kirk was actually Prince’s body guard, but he has yet to be charged with any crime.
Upon inspection, sources revealed that pills were everywhere in the Paisley Park studio. They were stored in various pill bottles that were mislabeled, and some prescription meds were also found in vitamin bottles and envelopes. While we know Prince was taking many medications such as Percocet and Dilaudid, those weren’t the pills that ultimately lead to his death. Investigators believe the official cause of death was due to an accidental overdose of Fentanyl. It’s a synthetic opiate that is about 50 times stronger than heroin.
So far no one has been charged with assisting in Prince’s death, but the investigation is still open and on-going.
