Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office just released the investigation results...

Fentanyl Toxicity:

coronor's report

via: http://www.projectknow.co...-overdose/
Fentanyl is a prescription synthetic opiate analgesic used for the treatment of severe pain. As an opioid, fentanyl binds with the opiate receptors of the brain when used, creating a sense of euphoria and relaxation in the user. With repeated use, those around the user may notice fentanyl overdose symptoms as the result of the user having taken too large a dose. Overdoses from narcotic painkillers like fentanyl can be extremely serious with long-lasting, if not fatal, consequences. As such, knowing how to recognize the signs of fentanyl use as well as the symptoms of an overdose can help those around the user realize the danger early and seek treatment before serious consequences of an overdose can occur.

I have no reason not to believe this. I am just very saddened that it happened and he didn't deserve this. I am just so depressed. I have been trying to make something of myself and with him gone it's like I want to give up.

I am so sorry he had to go through this alone.

Well, this is the autopsy report, right? The criminal investigation is still ongoing. This says definitively that he died from Fentayl Toxicity.

Well, there it is in black and white. sad

But, I agree...where's the rest? Did he have a hip replacement or not? Did he have an illness or not?

ETA: When Whitney's report was released, we even knew whether her teeth were real. But, maybe the family has requested privacy and all we can see is the cause of death.

Why does it have 4 causes listed and one is known as fentanyl and the other three are listed as na (not applicable).

This comes directly from the ME's office. I signed up for alerts long ago and got this in my email. It's official, there's no doubt whatsoever.

They don't have to say anything more than what they said there. His official cod is accidental od via Fentanyl. http://www.anokacounty.us...View/10066

It is normal - see subdivision 2 of the following: https://www.revisor.mn.go.../?id=13.83

Any other specific detail possessed by the medical examiner is nonpublic and won't be released unless the family chooses to do so, or someone petitions a court to release it based on a public interest exception.

Are the scars mentioned a result of hip surgery?

I think this only tells you why he died. It doesnt matter what else was going on with his body. What killed him was the drug overdose.

I have ot go google what fentanyl is...I dont know anything about it....

The more info the more questions that will be raised. He died from an OD of fentanyl. He died because he needed with managing his pain and he had no one that could help him. He helped so many, but he was human and needed help. Nothing more to say on this. Let's celebrate his life.

it

Are we getting a toxicology report as well or is this it?

Also, it says he had a scar on his hip and leg...suggests surgery was possible.

And fentanyl most often comes in patch form, I think. So this was heavy duty stuff.

Man, so sad. We love you Prince.

Report lists scar on left hip, which may indicate from a surgery...

The template form that they use leaves space for up to 4 causes (or causes of causes). For example, a cause might be "loss of blood" under 1. while "gunshot wound" might be under 2. In this case it would appear that there was no other applicable contributing cause other than the fentanyl OD.

OMG! This opens the wound that has not healed in our hearts again. I am so saddened. How devastating for all of us fans to read this. It kind of puts a finality to his earthly being. We know his soul is in Heaven with his son Amir. He finally has peace in his heart. Rest in peace my sweet Prince. cry

I was reading a wiki about it because the reporter on CNN said it was the most potent opioid.

He was only 112lbs. sad

FWIW, the description of clothing in the report matches exactly what he was wearing when he was photographed at the pharmacy the preceding evening, which might suggest that the OD happened that evening, or at least prior to him preparing to go to sleep.

The clothing description matches the picture that TMZ was pushing. Prince didn't strike me as the type to walk around the house in all black basic clothing neutral

Why did the lady on CNN at the Medical Examiners office have to state it like "This is the new Heroine?" I don't like that! Goodness. Prince was in severe hip pain! He just took too many pills! Geee I miss him. sad
