He was provided prescriptions for vitamin D and an anti-nausea drug. She also said her client did not prescribe opiates to anyone with the intention of them being given to Prince. Prince requested the prescriptions be written out to Johnson to protect his privacy, and Schulenberg obliged. However, Prince had long envisioned that Paisley Park would be open to the public, according to the job description page for P Park Management, which runs Paisley Park. "The bottom line is we do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime in relation to Prince's death", Metz said. "But suspicions and innuendo are categorically insufficient to support any criminal charges".
Metz said the evidence shows Prince thought he was taking Vicodin, not fentanyl. "Without probable cause, and no identifiable suspect, the Carver County Attorney's Office can not file criminal charges involving the death of Prince".
In a separate development, a doctor who treated the musician in his final weeks has been fined for allegedly writing a prescription knowing it would be used by another person, the U.S. Attorney for Minnesota said in a statement. Schulenberg's attorney has disputed that.
KARE 11 stopped by a home with an address linked to Kirk Johnson. "My hat's off to them", he said.
My client, Kirk Johnson, is relieved that no charges have been filed against him by state or federal authorities.
Johnson "continues to deny that he had anything to do with the death of his close friend, Prince", Johnson's attorney F. Clayton Tyler said in a statement.
Evidence collected at Paisley Park included a number of containers containing dozens of pills not in their original packaging. A urinalysis tested positive for opioids. Metz insists there is nothing to suggest Prince knew he was ingesting the powerful opioid.

Kornfeld told detectives that he had drugs in his backpack to help Prince, but would not have administered them without a doctor present.
Carver County Attorney Mark Metz planned a news conference Thursday morning to give an update on the investigation.
The suit, like numerous items, were listed as coming from Prince's ex-wife Mayte Garcia, a dancer and mother of Prince's only known child - who died shortly after birth in 1996 due to a rare disorder.
Prince died on April 21, 2016, from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid. The concentration of fentanyl in Prince's blood alone was 67.8 micrograms per liter, which outside experts called "exceedingly high". Prosecutors also affirmed in a separate letter to Schulenberg's attorneys that the doctor is not a target of a federal criminal investigation.
TREATMENT PROGRAM: According to the court documents, Andrew Kornfeld was at Paisley Park when police arrived at the death scene.
Last year, the search warrants revealed that prescription drugs were discovered in Prince's house. Hundreds of pages of documents were released, including audio and video.
Search warrants unsealed about a year after Prince died showed that authorities searched his home, cellphone records of associates and his email accounts to try to determine how he got the drug. But six days before his death, an airplane Prince was travelling on made an emergency stop in Moline, Ill., because the Minnesota native had passed out. First responders revived the musician on his plane with two doses of Narcan.
