    by Tracy Connor

    Search warrants from the investigation into Prince's overdose death were released on Monday, revealing that prescription medications were found all over his house — including some in the name of a confidant who claimed he didn't know the singer was addicted to pain pills.

    The court documents detail investigators' efforts to obtain cellphone and Internet records after Prince was found dead April 21 at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota...

    Prince fans mark 1st anniversary of music superstar's death
    Concerts, dance parties, memorabilia displays planned in tribute

    At Paisley Park, which has been turned into a museum, a full four days of events are on tap, ranging from concert performances by Prince's former bandmates to panel discussions. Fans who can't afford those high-priced tickets can head to a street party outside First Avenue, the club he made world famous in Purple Rain. And the Minnesota History Center is staging a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including his iconic Purple Rain suit.

    Investigative sources told reporter Beth McDonough that Prince may have thought he was taking a legitimate painkiller, like hydrocodone or fentanyl, that unknowingly also had U-47700 in it. *


    Because U-47700 is not considered a controlled substance by state or federal agents, it's not regulated. *The Drug Enforcement Administrations says it tends to be produced overseas in China or Eastern Europe. *It's widely available, easily accessible and affordable, about $40 online. *

    Doctor has reached a settlement with the county to avoid prosecution.

    The Minnesota physician who saw Prince twice in the weeks before the artist's death agreed to pay $30,000 to the US to settle allegations that he prescribed drugs to someone else knowing that Prince would take them.

    Carver County attorney Mark Metz said the recording artist Prince died from an accidental fentanyl overdose after he took counterfeit pills containing the powerful painkiller.
    "Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him," Metz said.
    There is no evidence showing how he obtained that counterfeit pill, he said. Because of that, there will be no criminal charges filed in the case, he said.

    Prince heirs sue Illinois hospital over care during overdose
