More details surrounding the death of Prince emerge. According to a search warrant of Prince's Paisley Park complex outside Minneapolis, investigators found several pills labeled Watson 853 - the identifier for the generic hydrocodone-acetaminophen - in various rooms. A search also turned up other "numerous narcotic controlled substance pills" in various containers, some prescribed to his bodyguard. The documents say detectives were "made aware by witnesses that were interviewed, that Prince recently had a history of going through withdrawals, which are believed to be the result of the abuse of prescription medication." Prince was found dead at the complex on April 21, 2016. His official cause of death was given last year as an accidental, self-administered overdose of the painkiller fentanyl. No criminal charges have been brought over Prince's death.
