Mystery remains over drug involved in Prince's death

By Amy Forliti

A doctor who saw Prince in the days before he died had prescribed pain medication oxycodone under the name of the singer's friend to protect his privacy, according to court documents.

But the documents, unsealed yesterday as the year-long investigation into Prince's death continues, revealed nothing about how the superstar got the fentanyl that actually killed him.

Prince was 57 when he was found unresponsive in a lift at his Paisley Park home in Minneapolis last April. The documents show authorities searched Paisley Park, mobile phone records, and Prince's email accounts to try to determine how he got the fentanyl, a synthetic drug 50 times stronger than heroin.
