UPDATE: Nearly two years after Prince’s death, a newly unsealed toxicology report reveals that the singer had an “exceedingly high” level of Fentanyl in his system at the time of his death. The Associated Press reports that Prince’s blood stream had 67.8 micrograms per liter of the powerful opioid; overdoses often occur when the Fentanyl levels reach three to 58 micrograms per liter, the AP notes. After weeks of speculation, law enforcement officials confirmed Thursday that Prince died of an opioid overdose, according to the Associated Press. In a report released by the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office, the singer died of an accidental Fentanyl overdose. Leading up to today’s announcement, news sites have speculated about Prince’s alleged drug use around the time of his death on April 21st. Although the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office said initially that an autopsy on the artist was inconclusive – it wanted to wait until the toxicology report came in – investigators reported in late April that Prince had been in possession of prescription painkillers. The Drug Enforcement Agency and U.S. Attorney joined the investigation in early May.
