The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed on Thursday that Prince, who was found dead in his Minnesota home on April 21st, died from an accidental fentanyl overdose.
A Minnesota medical examiner says Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.
The report from the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office was issued Thursday, more than a month after the music superstar was found dead at age 57 at his Paisley Park mansion.
The single-page report said Prince "self-administered fentanyl," referring to a synthetic opioid many times more potent than heroin.
The report was signed by Quinn Strobl, the office’s chief medical examiner.
