April 21st will be the two-year anniversary of Prince's death since he was found dead in his Minnesota home. It is fitting then that a number of new details about his shocking death emerged, including the full Prince death scene video released by cops. Prince was 57 years old when he was found unresponsive at Paisley Park and his untimely, shocking death rattled  the world.

He was found to have died from an accidental overdose of the drug Fentanyl, which is an opioid pain reliever with effects that set in rapidly and only last an hour or two. It has a very high risk for addiction and dependence and can cause respiratory distress and death when taken in high doses, especially when combined with other substances. A number of high profile people have died as a result of accidental overdoses of Fentanyl including singer Tom Petty. Investigators recently uncovered a number of new details in Prince's death:

1. Prince did not think he was taking Fentanyl. 

Ina very sad turn of events, Prince apparently did not know he was taking the deadly drug Fentanyl. Instead, he thought he was taking the common prescription painkiller Vicodin. The pill he took was counterfeit Vicodin laced with Fentanyl, which is 50 times stronger than heroin. 

2. No one will be charged In Prince's death.

Because there is absolutely no way to know how Prince got his hands on what turned out to be fake Vicodin laced with Fentanyl, no one will be charged with his death.

7. Prince's doctor was fined.

The investigation into Prince's death revealed that Dr. Michael Schulenberg prescribed painkillers to Prince's bodyguard Kirk Johnson with the full knowledge that they were actually for Prince. Schulenberg reached an out of court civil settlement with the Minnesota U.S. Attorney's office. He was ordered to pay a $30,000 fine and will be monitored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency for two years. 

8. The investigation is closed.

The Carver County attorney announced the investigation into Prince's death would be closed after two years. During a press conference, attorney Mark Metz said: "For the past two years, law enforcement had conducted an extensive, painstaking and thorough investigation into Prince's death..."

"...That investigation determined that Prince died from taking a counterfeit Vicodin pill that contained Fentanyl, a dangerously powerful opioid. However, investigators were unable to determine how the singer obtained the counterfeit pills. We simply do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime related to Prince's death."
