Paramedic Justin Fredrickson said it was "immediately" clear to him that Prince was not breathing, and he believed he was suffering from opiate intake, according to documents released by the Carver County Sheriff's Office.

Prince died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl in April 2016 after taking counterfeit Vicodin pills that were laced with fentanyl, said Carver County attorney Mark Metz. Joshua Welton, who co-produced some of Prince's work, and Hannah Welton, the drummer in the Prince-created band 3rdEyeGirl, said they were like Prince's family. He told her after his show that he thought he was going to fall asleep on stage. There are pictures of pills that were found in various bottles in several different rooms. "The United States Attorneys' Office for the District of Minnesota has confirmed that he is not a target in any criminal inquiry and there have been no allegations made by the government that Dr. Schulenberg had any role in Prince's death", Schulenberg's attorney, Amy Conners, said in a statement to ABC News.

The messages show Johnson contacted Schulenberg on April 7, 2016 because Prince wasn't feeling well and wanted fluids. Prince's doctor had prescribed a medication used to treat opioid withdrawal. He wrote that Prince was supposed to "fly out today for a show". Schulenberg also ran unspecified tests on Prince and showed up at Paisley Park on the day Prince died. Schulenberg did so, again under Johnson's name, Metz said. Johnson contacted Schulenberg again on April 18, and expressed concern that Prince was struggling with opioids. That test would've helped medical officials determine what Prince had ingested. Meanwhile, Johnson and others had reached out to addiction specialist Howard Kornfeld, who dispatched his son to Paisley Park to try to convince Prince to seek treatment.

The doctor sent his son, Andrew, to Minnesota that night, and the younger Kornfeld was among those who found Prince's body.

An assistant to Prince told investigators that he had been unusually quiet and sick with the flu in the days before he was found dead.
