Carver County (MN) prosecutor Mark Metz just gave a new conference where he updated the public on the death of singer/songwriter Prince, who died in 2016 from a fentanyl overdose.

According to Metz, investigators can find no evidence that Prince had a prescription for either Vicodin or fentanyl and no criminal charges will be filed against any doctor. He went on to say it’s likely Prince tooked a counterfeit Vicodin prescription that was laced with fentanyl and that’s what caused his death:

Although he did also say no pills were ever tested so we won’t know for sure (Note: there’s a typo in the tweet. Metz says “Watson 853” in the presser, not “Watson 383”):
