For some, there has been closure around the death of pop music phenomenon, Prince. For others, this week's news will only add to the mystery around the performer's death. 

It has been revealed that no criminal charges will be filed after the death of the singer. 

The news came via Carver County attorney, Mark Metz.

It will come as a surprise to some after a toxicology report, which was leaked last month, stated that Prince's body contained "exceedingly high" levels of opiod fentanyl when it was found. 

Prince did not have a prescription for fentanyl, hence the confusion. It is thought that much of the investagion was based around how the songwriter got hold of the drug. 

The Purple Rain singer was 57 years old when died on April 21st in 2016. He was found dead in Paisley Park estate and studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Metz discussed the lack of charges in a statement released this week. He said: "Despite the intensive law enforcement investigation, there is no reliable evidence showing how Prince obtained the counterfeit Vicodin laced with fentanyl, or who else may have had a role in delivering the counterfeit Vicodin to Prince."

"Therefore, without probable cause and no identified suspect, the Carver County Attorney's Office cannot file any criminal charges involving the death of Prince."

Metz also stated that he expects the results of this investigation to receive a significant amount of backlash, but that is no reason to continue a criminal investigation when there is no evidence to do so. 
 
He added: "There is no doubt that the actions of individuals around Prince will be criticized, questioned and judged in the days and weeks to come. But suspicions and innuendo are categorically insufficient to support any criminal charges." 

The attorney also gave details of the investigation, adding: "My focus was lasered in on trying to find out who provided that fentanyl, and we just don't know where he got it.

"We may never know. ... It's pretty clear from the evidence that he did not know, and the people around him didn't know, that he was taking fentanyl." 

It is thought that most of Prince's inner circle were interviewed regarding the daily habits of the star. 

This news comes after Prince's estate released footage showing the pop legend in rehearsal in 1984, with the singer performing a haunting version of "Nothing Compares 2 U." 

For many, this is how they want to remember the deceased performer; in his prime, getting ready to entertain the masses with a rendition of one of the greatests songs that has ever been written.
