Po­lice file re­veals new de­tails in case

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

A doc­tor saw Prince twice in the month be­fore his death - in­clud­ing the day be­fore he died - and pre­scribed him med­i­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to con­tents of a search war­rant that were re­vealed as au­thor­i­ties re­turned to the mu­si­cian’s sub­ur­ban Min­neapo­lis es­tate as part of their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into what killed him.

Dr Michael Todd Schu­len­berg treated Prince on April 7 and April 20, and he pre­scribed med­i­ca­tions for the mu­si­cian, ac­cord­ing to the war­rant, which was ob­tained by at least two news out­lets be­fore au­thor­i­ties moved to en­sure it was sealed.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors in­ter­viewed Schu­len­berg and searched a sub­ur­ban Min­neapo­lis hos­pi­tal where he worked. The war­rant did not spec­ify what med­i­ca­tions were pre­scribed or whether Prince took them. Schu­len­berg’s lawyer, Amy Con­ners, de­clined to com­ment. A law en­force­ment of­fi­cial said in­ves­ti­ga­tors are look­ing into whether Prince died from an over­dose and whether a doc­tor was pre­scrib­ing him drugs in the weeks be­fore his death.

Schu­len­berg is the se­cond doc­tor whose name has sur­faced in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Last week, a lawyer for Cal­i­for­nia ad­dic­tion spe­cial­ist Dr Howard Korn­feld told re­porters that Prince’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives had con­tacted Korn­feld seek­ing help a day be­fore the su­per­star was found dead on April 21.

On Tues­day, a sher­iff’s car and about a dozen un­marked ve­hi­cles en­tered the gates of Pais­ley Park. Asked what in­ves­ti­ga­tors were do­ing, Carver County Sher­iff’s Chief Deputy Ja­son Kamerud said they were “be­ing thor­ough”.
