Authorities have set their sights on two doctors that may have broken laws to supply Prince with the synthetic opioids that contributed to his death.
According to TMZ, the FBI, DEA and Carver County District Attorney’s Office are investigating his primary physician, Dr Michael Schulenberg, as well as addiction specialist, Dr. Howard Kornfeld.
Dr. Schulenberg was at Prince’s home when his body was discovered, but says he was only there to inform Prince of some test results. Dr. Kornfeld’s son was also at the house with a backpack loaded with synthetic opiates to treat addiction. Kornfeld’s lawyer says none of the opiates went into Prince’s system.
As for the two doctors, Kornfeld is still actively practicing in Marin County, CA but Dr. Schulenberg has been MIA from his med clinic since Prince died in April.
Our sources say if state charges are filed, the case will not go to the grand jury … the DA will make the decision. We’re told it’s unclear how long the investigation will take, but it could be several months.
