2-Year Probe Into Prince’s Death: Prosecutor To Announce Results

Two years after iconic singer Prince passed away, authorities will finally release their findings as to the cause of his death.

Finally Getting Answers

Prince Rogers Nelson's death, which was ruled to have been from an accidental drug overdose, has been thoroughly investigated over the past 24 months. Now, Minnesota prosecutors are ready to release an official statement.

Carver County Attorney Mark Metz will announce the results of the investigation on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. The main revelation is whether anyone will face charges as a result of the investigation. The county sheriff's office reviewed the case thoroughly over the past week.

Peter Ivy, the chief deputy county attorney, told the press on Tuesday that prosecutors would be ready to announce something very soon.

An Accidental Overdose

The legendary musician was just 57 years old when he died. The singer was found unconscious at his Minnesota home on April 21, 2016. The results of an autopsy subsequently revealed that he died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.

The synthetic opioid, for which Prince had no prescription, is 50 times more powerful than heroin. The Associated Press obtained a toxicology report back in March, revealing excessively high levels of the drug in the musician's bloodstream.

Police conducted a thorough search of the estate and looked into internal records to find out how the musician obtained the drug. They located numerous pills, many of which were stored in vitamin bottles and envelopes, among various other hiding places.

A Private Struggle

Prince's drug-related death came as a massive shock to those close to him, who knew him to be extremely dedicated to clean-living and devoted to Jehovah's Witnesses. Subsequent reports revealed, however, that the iconic performer suffered from intense pain following years of touring and, as a result, he may have been self-medicating.

He was reportedly struggling with addiction and withdrawal, particularly in his later years. He had several but ultimately unsuccessful attempts to stay clean.

The singer collapsed on a flight just a week before his death. As a result, the aircraft made an emergency landing. He was reportedly revived with two doses of a drug antidote to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

Federal prosecutors and the Drug Enforcement Administration opened an investigation following Prince's death. They looked into how the musician obtained numerous pills that the police found scattered throughout his property while investigating his death.

Prince was self-conscious about his height -- 5'3" -- and wore high-heeled boots (either 4" or 3 1/3") whenever he went out in public, and moreover, he did not like to be seen wearing the same pair of boots at two different appearances on the same day.

Prince contracted with Andre No. 1, a famous cobbler-to-the-stars on Sunset Boulevard founded by Andre Rostomyan, whose client roster includes everyone from Frank Sinatra to Lady Gaga. Rostomyan made a shoe last -- a wooden model -- of Prince's feet, and would take orders for 30-40 pairs of boots/month, eventually supplying more than 3,000 pairs to Prince.

Each pair was identical in shape, but used unique mixes of materials, colors, and gimmicks like light-up lucite heels. Prince consulted closely on the details, visiting the store in person with fabric, making calls as to whether to cut it with or against the bias, etc. Boots that were to be worn onstage -- where Prince gave incredibly athletic, graceful performances -- got extra-strong structural wood to ensure that they could survive the workout that Prince put them through.

Prince refused to have his wooden lasts improved by means of a 3D scanning system, saying that the religious tenets of the Jehovah's Witnesses forbade believers like him from using technology to capture a part of the human body.

There was only one instance in which Prince was adamantly against something Gary suggested. “He was a Jehovah’s Witness,” the shoemaker explains. “I wanted to use one of the 3-D scanning machines I’d just gotten to mold the new shoe forms for him and make the process a bit faster, but he refused. I guess they don’t believe in using technology to re-create a certain part of the body.” Gary continued to make Prince’s footwear by hand, even crafting “slippers” for him to wear while he was at home. “They were actually more like platform flip-flops,” he says. “They looked a lot like those ’90s platform thongs made by brands like Rocket Dog and Soda.” Mostly, though, whether at home, onstage, or in public, Prince had his bespoke man stilts on. “I’ve seen a lot of people pull off a lot of different shoes, but there were definitely times where I thought Prince couldn’t do it, especially with all of the splits and the dancing,” Gary says. “But no matter the heel, he always did.”
