In a scene eerily similar to the fateful death of King of Pop Michael Jackson, and the eventual prosecution of his personal doctor, reports indicate the late icon Prince’s doctors could potentially face criminal charges due to an ongoing criminal probe.
And it ain’t just the local cops that are in on the act. Federal authorities from the DEA and FBI are now investigating as well.
Family physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and California addiction doctor Howard Kornfeld are the professionals being investigated, according to TMZ.
Schulenberg treated the late music icon at least twice in the weeks prior to his death, and said he had returned the day of Prince’s collapse to deliver test results. Kornfeld, whom Prince’s team called April 20 to set up an emergency intervention, had sent his son Andrew Kornfeld to the Grammy winner’s Paisley Park estate with the opioid addiction treatment buprenorphine.
Prince died in May as a result of a drug overdose.
