Just four days before Prince's death last year on April 21, several affidavits and search warrants were unsealed in Carver County District Court.
One of the surprising pieces of information is that the last doctor to see the musician had prescribed oxycodone to him but used the name of his friend who was his drummer and estate manager at Paisley Park.
The 57-year-old Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator in his home by members of the staff and an out-of-state doctor who was there to help him with his drug addiction. Autopsy results showed that he succumbed to an accidental overdose of fentanyl. An investigation into his death continues.
It was not the first clue that there was something very serious going on with Prince. The week before he passed, he was on his private plane, returning from a concert in Atlanta. They had to make an emergency stop, and he was revived with a drug that reverses the effects of opioid overdoses.
Search warrants explain that authorities searched Prince's home, the cell phone records of his associates, and his email accounts as they tried to figure out where he had obtained the fentanyl.
Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg saw Prince on April 7 and then again the day before he died. An affidavit shows that he admitted to the authorities that he had prescribed oxycodone to Prince the same day as the emergency landing of his plane, "but put the prescription in Kirk Johnson's name for Prince's privacy."
Johnson was not only a friend to Prince but also his longtime drummer and was the estate manager at Paisley Park. His cell phone records were searched to see if there was any more information about what happened in that month before Prince died.
Neither Johnson nor Schulenberg have been interviewed again since the very early hours into the investigation of Prince's death according to an official with knowledge of the investigation.
