Prince’s final days were detailed in a series

According to the Carver County Sheriff's Office, all of the pills that were marked "Watson 853" were counterfeit. An autopsy report unveiled that the singer had died from a fatal "self-administered" dose of fentanyl, a powerful painkiller.

Prince was found dead inside of an elevator at his Minneapolis-area property, Paisley Park at the age of 57 in April 2016.

In surveillance footage hours before his 2016 death, Prince, dressed in black and looking gaunt, can be seen walking into a doctor's office with friend and bodyguard Kirk Johnson. Authorities found numerous pills in various containers stashed around Prince's home, including some counterfeit pills that contained fentanyl.

Just six days before he died, Prince passed out on a plane and an emergency stop was made in Moline, Illinois.

Within minutes, at about 8:42 a.m., Long reached the shooting scene and the shooter was in custody, officials said. Forest High was to participate in the walkout, according to a Thursday post on the Ocala school's Twitter account.

Since Prince's death, there's been much speculation over the vault at Paisley Park Studios, which has been said to contain recordings, memorabilia and more. Kornfeld sent his son, Andrew, to Minnesota that night and the younger Kornfeld was among those who found Prince's body.

Investigative files released as prosecutors closed their probe into Prince's death show that his closest confidants had grown increasingly anxious about his health in the days before he died - and that they tried to get him help. Andrew Kornfeld was carrying buprenorphine, a medication that can be used to help treat opioid addiction. Schulenberg did so, again under Johnson's name, Metz said.

But none of his inner circle was able to give investigators the insight they needed to determine where Prince got the fentanyl that killed him.
