IFR News (Minneapolis) - Pop singer and major cultural icon, Prince, died and many in Minnesota, his home state, have been waiting to hear back on the results from the Midwest Medical Examiner. Those results are in, and conclude that Prince died from a drug overdose, accidentally.

The report stated, also reported widely already on major news outlets, that Prince used the drug fentanyl to relieve pain, but the dose was too strong. This drug is used with terminally ill patients that are tolerant to strong opioids.

The report indicated that the Minneapolis, MN resident only weighed 112 lbs. at the time of his shocking departure from life. His family is tied up in courts trying to figure out what will happen to assets, debts and intellectual property rights and business dealings after Prince's death.

Fentanyl is a very strong drug and can be up to 50 times more potent than heroin, a street drug and schedule one controlled substance under federal law. Fentanyl is regulated under the FDA heavily because it is so addictive.

It is not yet clear if Prince was prescribed the drug or not. The Minnesota pop star will be missed. His secret work in philanthropy has been well publicized even though in life he preferred not to discuss or disclose it because, partly, of his Jehova's Witness religious beliefs and tenets.

Michael Jackson died from an overdose of medical drugs as well in the later part of the 2000s and shocked the world. These two singers' tragic deaths have both been hot topic of conversation around drugs, music, inspiration, life and public health policy.
