Prince's Doctor Identified as Search Warrant Is Executed for the Singer's Medical Records
The singer's doctor was bringing medical test results to Prince's estate when he found out about the death
Having reportedly seen the singer the day before he died, Dr. Michael T. Schulenberg had just arrived at Prince’s home with test results on April 21 only to find that the music legend had been pronounced dead moments earlier, according to a police affidavit – filed in connection with a search warrant – obtained by The New York Times.
Dr. Schulenberg also reportedly saw Prince in the weeks before his death on the same day that he canceled an Atlanta show due to illness.
Although Prince was said to have been battling the flu, the papers do not disclose which illness he was diagnosed with, but they do say that Schulenberg performed tests and prescribed the singer with medication.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the search warrant also requested medical records from the North Memorial Medical Center where Schulenberg was formerly employed.
The day after the musician’s death an autopsy was performed and while the tests have been completed, an official cause of death has not been released.
