Prince was 57 when he was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park studio compound on April 21, 2016.

Almost two years after his death, images of Prince and Paisley Park during his final days were released after Carver County authorities announced Thursday that there would be no criminal charges in his death.

Surveillance footage from Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg's medical clinic on April 20, 2016 - the day before Prince's death - shows the legendary musician walking into, and later out of, the facility.

Surveillance footage showed the bodyguard Johnson at a Walgreens, picking up a prescription hours before Prince's death.

Dr Schulenberg admitted no liability as part of the settlement and has maintained he did not prescribe drugs to anyone with the intention they be redirected to Prince. I can drive over if it would help.

Russian state hackers are "targeting internet infrastructure"
Washington and London have detailed how Russian-backed hackers have been compromising network devices around the world since 2015.

The messages show Schulenberg went to Paisley Park to treat Prince in private and later texted Johnson to wish them a safe trip.

According to the Carver County Sheriff's Office, all of the pills that were marked "Watson 853" were counterfeit.

Police said they found pills scattered all over his home, some in blankets and others mixed together in the same bottle.

Today (April 19), Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said Prince had taken counterfeit Vicodin and likely had no idea it had been laced with fentanyl.

"The bottom line is we simply do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime in relation to Prince's death", Metz said, per the New York Times. An autopsy showed he died from an overdose of fentanyl, a synthetic drug that has caused several deaths across the Upper Midwest in the past few years. Prosecutors also affirmed in a separate letter to Schulenberg's attorneys that the doctor is not a target of a federal criminal investigation.
