By  | 

What so many of us didn’t want to believe could be true.

A law enforcement source told The Associated Press that Prince cause of death was due to an opioid overdose.

An official working with the investigation spoke with the AP confirmed a lot of what was already suspected.

Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg, a family practitioner, treated Prince twice in the weeks before his death and told investigators he prescribed medications for the singer. The medications were not specified in a search warrant for the Minnesota hospital that employed Schulenberg at the time.

Schulenberg saw Prince April 7 and April 20 — the day before his death — according to the warrant. Schulenberg’s attorney has declined to comment on the case.
