CHASKA, Minn. (KMSP) - The search warrants related to the Prince death investigation will be unsealed and become public data on Monday, April 17, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Friday. Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud said “the matter remains an open and active investigation.”

The unsealing of the documents comes almost exactly one year from the date of Prince’s death.

CHASKA, Minn. (KMSP) - The search warrants related to the Prince death investigation will be unsealed and become public data on Monday, April 17, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Friday. Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud said “the matter remains an open and active investigation.”

The unsealing of the documents comes almost exactly one year from the date of Prince’s death. Prince Rogers Nelson, 57, was found dead at his Paisley Park estate on April, 21, 2016. The Midwest Medical Examiner confirmed his death was caused by an accidental overdose of fentanyl. Deputies attempted CPR but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Last October, a court order extended the seal on the search warrants and accompanying documents involved in the Prince death investigation until April 17, 2017. Friday’s news confirms that seal won’t be extended a second time.

A search warrant filed May 6, 2016 in Hennepin County identified a Minnesota doctor who treated Prince. The doctor allegedly wrote Prince prescriptions, and was at Paisley Park the day he died. The search warrant for Prince’s medical records was served at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.

According to the document, obtained by the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg saw Prince on April 7 and April 20 – the day before he died. Investigators learned Dr. Schulenberg performed some tests on Prince and was dropping the results off at Paisley Park “when he appeared on the death scene.”
According to the warrant, Dr. Schulenberg told investigators he prescribed medications to Prince, and the prescriptions were to be filled at Walgreens. TMZ has previously reported that Prince had gone to Walgreens 4 times in the week before his death.

Carver County Deputy Sheriff Jason Kamerud told the Associated Press the search warrant was supposed to have been sealed. The warrant asks for all medical records, documents, reports, charts, photographs, prescriptions, doctor's notes and medical images for Prince Rogers Nelson.

The matter of heirship to Prince’s estate is an ongoing matter in Carver County probate court. Prince did not leave a will, was twice divorced, and both of his parents preceded him in death. He didn't have any known children, but does have a sister (Tyka) and at least 5 half-siblings.

This week, the 6 likely heirs to the estate of Prince are asking a Carver County judge to make a final determination and officially name them the late musician’s heirs. On March 21, Judge Kevin Eide wrote the court “is reasonably certain that Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, John R. Nelson, Tyka Nelson, Omarr Baker, and Alfred Jackson (the “Non-Excluded Heirs”) will be found to be the heirs of the Decedent.”

Those 6 have each satisfied the court with proof that they are the sibling of half-sibling of Prince, while handfuls of other claims were dismissed through DNA testing or other means. The 6 siblings say their request does not ask for any immediate payments from the estate, and that their “sole intent with this motion is to clarify what is already widely known -- that they are the siblings” of Prince.



Remember. It's “The Media”!



So when they say Monday, they're lieing through their teeth. They really mean, three Sundays from now — the lieing scum that they are >:د |

I think this is going to be less illuminating than some here are hoping for. They're just releasing search warrants themselves; they're not publicizing whatever they found when the warrants were executed.

--No per the law in Minn the public has a right to request access to these documents every 6 months. The 17th is six months to day from the last request so we will see search warrant docs on Monday. I also want you and others to take note that he went to that Walgreens numerous times in the weeks up to his death with no controlled substances filled and no doctor shopping. I am firmly convinced he was getting legit Rxs filled and we will soon find out.

Well the article in the Tribune is stating the case is still open but they could be wrong or it could be closed on Monday we will soon see.

What makes you think we're "going to find out" his medical records on Monday?

-

I defer to a lawyer here, but I believe HIPAA rules still apply. And second, it sounds like they're releasing the warrants (the requests to search various properties), not the results of what they found when they executed the warrants.

God I hope so. No need for the public to know all the details when it's not going to provide any answers but just cause more gossip.

What does that mean? That they're not going to release details or they're not going to comment on what they do release?

I did not say medical records would released I pointed out a important point from the article that gets glossed over on this board. When the search warrant was left open before we found out about his two treatments in the hospital in 2014 and 15 so do not assume nothing will be in the file.

According to the articles, Carver Couty is releasing "a handful of search warrants" -- aka requests to search property (according to the Strib, likely primarily releated to the search of paisley park). That's it. There's no mention of releasing info about who was interviewed. And we'll have no idea what, if anything at all, they found. So, as another poster mentioned, this likely much ado about nothing.

mickeyaddict, not a fan of yer username. Seems a bit much given all the strong anti-addict sentiment against addicts that's repeatedly expressed in so many threads on this site. Too each his own, indeed.



Admit it! You're all just jelly that yous didn't think of using a miniature Paisley Park avatar first. It's beautiful. Ain't it? I think so anyway. That's what matters.



Anyway. Thanks Trivial (now that's a fitting name) for reminding me of that one New Order tune I used to love… “Everybody makes mistRakez. Even me…
