Investigators said he was last seen alive at about 8 p.m. the night before at Paisley Park, a sprawling compound that doubled as the reclusive singer's recording studio and home in Chanhassen, Minn.

The report indicates the legendary musician administered the drug himself.

In the weeks following his death, friends suggested the "Little Red Corvette" singer had suffered from severe hip pain for years. For the manner of death, a box was marked "accident".

After Prince died, authorities began reviewing whether an overdose was to blame and whether he had been prescribed drugs in the preceding weeks. A lawyer for Schulenberg said Friday she was unable to comment on the investigation.

Shortly after Prince's death, his longtime friend and onetime fiancee, Sheila E. The autopsy report was released hours later. It also has legitimate medical uses.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, 50 times more potent than heroin, that's partly responsible for a recent surge in overdose deaths in some parts of the country. Because of its risks, it is tightly controlled by the Food and Drug Administration, but much of it is manufactured illegally. Advocates of the drug say the opiate can help addicted patients by offering pain relief with reduced possibility of overdose and addiction.

"Fentanyl is a drug that would nearly never be prescribed to a patient like Prince who doesn't have terminal cancer because the potential for overdose is extremely high", Kahn said.

The singer's health issues first made headlines on 15 April (16), when a private plane he was a passenger on made an emergency landing at the Quad City International Airport in IN, so Prince could be taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance for treatment. The first responder gives him a shot of Narcan , an antidote used to reverse the effect of opioid overdoses.

Prince's weight is listed at just 112 pounds (50.8 kilograms) in the report. He had scars on his left hip and right lower leg. He has no link to Prince.

Meanwhile, Prince's estate administrator is seeking to set a strict timeline to ensure anyone seeking a piece of the singer's fortune fulfils a sworn affidavit, featuring a three-page questionnaire detailing parentage and birth certificate details, by 10 June (16). If he did not, the person who gave it to him could be prosecuted. "Prince RIP I am crying!" "These guys don't write receipts, and they change phones all the time". Under Minnesota law, the same actions can result in third-degree murder charges and up to 25 years in prison.

The Carver County Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate the death with help from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

A Minnesota-based physician, Dr. Michael Schulenberg visits Prince, as per the search warrant.

Howard Kornfeld, an addiction treatment doctor has also stated he was in touch with Prince's representative the day before Prince died. Kornfield flew his son, Andrew, out to Prince and he was among the people who discovered Prince's body on April 21.

A rainbow appears over Paisley Park near a memorial for Prince on April 21. Mauzy has refused to identify that doctor. The pre-med student advocates for a prescription drug called buprenorphine, hence the survival rates for addicts raise when given. Taking buprenorphine, he wrote, helps to eliminate the craving for opioids, as well as the symptoms of withdrawal.

Singer Prince reportedly died of an opioid overdose.

The University of California, Santa Cruz graduate - who is now applying to med school - had buprenorphine in his possession at the time that he found Prince, as previously reported.

The names of at least two doctors have come up in the death investigation.
