Prince’s dead body was found by Andrew Kornfeld, the son of Dr. Howard Kornfeld, in the elevator at his Paisely Park estate and now he could reportedly be prosecuted even though he called 911! It’s all because he had a synthetic opiate in his backpack and he’s not a doctor, plus he was getting paid!
Things are getting very intense surrounding the investigation into Prince‘s death. We told you that The day before Prince’s death, April 20, his team frantically called opioid addiction expert, Dr. Howard Kornfeld and begged him to fly to Minnesota because to stage an intervention for Prince. But Dr. Kornfeld couldn’t make it so he sent his son Andrew Kornfeld on behalf of their recovery center, Recovery Without Walls. But it turns out Andrew might not be protected under the Good Samaritan Act for calling 911 because he had synthetic opiates in his backpack, potentially to treat Prince.

Andrew arrived to Prince’s home and immediately a search began to find Prince, who had not been seen since the night before. Andrew was with members of Prince’s team when they found him dead in the elevator and Andrew made the 911 call. But even though Andrew did not supply Prince with any drugs, he did have synthetic opiates in his backpack, a drug called buprenorphine. This is commonly used to wean people off of real opiates. But even though Andrew could potentially be protected under Minnesota’s Good Samaritan Act, which protects people from drug crimes if they call 911. But the issue is that since Andrew was potentially going to get paid for going to see Prince, this does not grant him immunity under the law, according to TMZ. Also, even if Dr. Kornfeld was going to prescribe the drugs to Prince, Andrew is not a doctor and it’s also illegal for individuals to take drugs across state lines.
Prince’s autopsy was completed on April 22, but the toxicology reports won’t be complete for several weeks. We’re hoping that more answers will be made public then. There’s also a very sad report that claims that Prince allegedly overdosed the night before Dr. Kornfeld’s son was set to arrive because he didn’t want to live anymore.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Andrew should be protected?
