CCTV footage shows Prince visiting doctor the day before his death


A wealth of material gathered as evidence in the investigation into the death of musician Prince has been released, following the ruling that no criminal charges will be filed over his accidental overdose of the opioid painkiller fentanyl.

Among the 15GB of data made public by the Carver County sheriff’s office in Minnesota is CCTV footage of Prince visiting the offices of Dr Michael Schulenberg on 20 April 2016, the day before he died aged 57. Dr Schulenberg has since agreed to pay $30,000 (£21,330) in a settlement, after being charged with violating the Controlled Substances Act for writing an Oxycodone prescription for Prince in the name of the musician’s assistant, Kirk Johnson.
