DEA Launches Criminal Investigation Into Prince’s Death
The streets have been buzzing with talk that “they” killed Prince, and from the looks of things, that might just be accurate and the legend’s drug-related death may result in some serious jail time for someone close to his camp. The DEA is raiding his home in search of evidence that could put the doctors that wrote out his prescriptions for Percocet and other opiates — or worse, got them for him without going through proper medical protocols. Via TMZ:
The DEA is currently at Prince’s Paisley Park home, executing a search warrant, and TMZ has learned there is an active federal investigation into doctors who prescribed meds to Prince … sources connected with the investigation tell TMZ.
Our sources say the feds are conducting the probe under a series of federal laws targeting doctors who sell prescriptions to drug abusers. Our sources say this is precisely the reason for the investigation.
The laws also outlaw doctors and pharmacies who falsify record or forge prescriptions.
Our law enforcement sources tell us … there’s an additional element … crossing state lines to violate prescription laws. Our sources say the feds are also looking at the son of the rehab doctor who flew to Minnesota with a backpack full of synthetic opiates. The son, Andrew Kornfeld, was at Prince’s home when he died. We’re told Andrew is under the federal microscope.
If these doctors got Prince hooked on highly addictive painkillers and then fostered his subsequent addiction with under-the-table dealings until the pills finally killed him…then they DEFINITELY belong behind bars.
