Prince’s Doctor: Here’s Where the Meds Came From

Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg is, to put it mildly, a person of interest in the investigation of Prince’s death.

A search warrant reveals that Dr. Schulenberg saw Prince on April 7 (the day he canceled shows in Atlanta and a week before whatever happened on that plane ride home from the rescheduled Atlanta gigs that resulted in the emergency landing) and April 20 (the day before Prince died). He also left his practice a few days ago.

The warrant also says that “medications and prescriptions” were involved in each visit. At least some of those prescriptions were filled at a local Walgreens drugstore, one of the very last places Prince was seen alive. We don’t know what the medications were or if Prince took them. That information will have to wait for the toxicology report.

Meanwhile, detectives and the DEA continue to go through the Paisley Park compound looking for…something.
