ET obtained court documents on Monday in the death investigation of the singer, and the results of the search warrant shows that bottles of opioid painkillers were found throughout Prince's Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The search warrant notes that Schulenberg said he saw Prince on April 7 and 20, and prescribed him medications to be picked up at a nearby Walgreens pharmacy.
A search of Prince's home yielded numerous pills in various containers. The suitcase contained prescription pill bottles in the name of Kirk Johnson, and a closer examination of those pill bottles revealed that not all the pills inside the containers were the pills listed on the prescription. His publicist reassured fans that the 57-year-old star was fine, but a May 6 search warrant said investigators spoke to a witness who said Prince was rushed to a hospital because he was unconscious, and that the singer had admitted to taking one or two pain pills.
Officials unsealed court documents Monday (April 17) to reveal details surrounding the first searches of Prince's Paisley Park estate following his untimely death.
Search warrants unsealed Monday by investigators looking into Prince's overdose death almost a year ago said that Dr. Michael Schulenberg prescribed opioids to Prince but put them in the name of Prince confidante Kirk Johnson.
Joe Tamburino, a Minnesota defense attorney who is not associated with the Prince case, said while Schulenberg and Johnson could face charges if the allegations are true, it's unlikely state or federal prosecutors would pursue them. Dr. Michael Schulenberg, who wrote the prescription, told authorities he put the prescription in Johnson's name to protect Prince's privacy, according to a detective's affidavit.

Clayton Tyler, Johnson's attorney, released a statement saying that after reviewing the documents, "we believe that it is clear that Kirk Johnson did not secure nor supply the drugs which caused Prince's death".
Information in the warrants also revealed that investigators found a suitcase containing several prescription bottles in the name of Johnson, who told investigators a year ago that the singer had been struggling with opiate use.
Just six days before he died, Prince fell ill on a plane and made an emergency stop in IL as he returned from a gig in Atlanta.

He was the last guy on his team to score, hitting a free throw with 3 seconds left that cut the Gonzaga lead to two . But Theo Pinson got inside and batted the ball back out to Joel Berry II, who got fouled with four seconds left.
Jason Kamerud, chief deputy for the Carver County Sheriff's Office, told NPR this afternoon that "no one has been charged, and the investigation is ongoing".
The day before Prince died, Paisley Park staffers contacted California addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld for help. Andrew Kornfeld told investigators that without his father's knowledge he brought a drug used to help with opioid addiction treatment, though it was never administered.
"The oxycodone in this case is only tangential to the whole case", Tamburino said. He also did not have a regular doctor and his team would arrange for various physicians to give him vitamin B-12 shots before performances.
