An unnamed paramedic who responded to the 911 call at Prince’s estate reportedly told staff members and police that Prince may have been dead for upwards of six hours before his body was discovered, according to the Star Tribune. The paper provided no further details about how the paramedic allegedly came to that conclusion, or why the information didn’t come forward until now.
Police are currently investigating Prince’s death to determine if it was the result of a dangerous combination of prescription drugs. The authorities don’t have the results of Prince’s toxicology report yet, but they’re interested in determining if he was taking a toxic cocktail of Percocet and Buprenorphine, according to sources who spoke to TMZ.
Authorities are also curious as to why Dr. Micheal Schulenberg, Prince’s physician, was at his house when he died. If Percocet and Buprenorphine turn up on the toxicology report, they’ll be investigating him — as well as Andrew Cornfield, Prince’s rehab specialist. If either gave him that combination of drugs, it’s not going to be good.
