New things have been revealed in relation to the death of famous singer Prince. The latest reports indicate that some mislabeled pills were found at the star’s home, after this shocking death on April 21.
Prince was found dead in his home outside Minneapolis. An autopsy report on the star’s death found that Prince has died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl. However, it remained unclear how this has happened. Now, some sources close to the investigation indicated that Prince might have ingested mislabeled drugs.
So investigators found that drugs labeled as hydrocodone actually contained fentanyl. It is unclear how the mislabeling occurred. It could either be the mistake of a pharmaceutical manufacturer or the pills might have been illegally manufactured or illegally obtained. Some sources claimed that investigators are considering the theory that Prince did not know that the pills contained fentanyl.
It is not clear if Prince ingested some of these pills before his death. Star Tribune, which reported the mislabeling first, indicated that according to its source the singer did not have a prescription for fentanyl. Furthermore, several experts claimed that mislabeling is a common practice on the illegal drug market. These point to the hypostasis that the singer illegally purchased the powerful drug.
Fentanyl is known to commonly be illegally sold. The drug has created an epidemic of overdose deaths in the United States. This drug is considered to be 50 times stronger than heroin. The investigation into the singer’s death remains ongoing. Investigators refused to confirm the new report and revealed nothing about their findings.
