Prince saw Minnesota doctor before death

Associated Press Associated Press 11/05/2016

A search warrant has revealed a Minnesota doctor saw Prince twice in the month before his death, including the day before the singer died, and prescribed him medication.

The warrant was filed on Thursday in Hennepin County. It was obtained by KSTP-TV and the Los Angeles Times.

It says Dr Michael Todd Schulenberg treated Prince on April 7 and April 20, and that he prescribed "medications and prescriptions" for the musician.

Investigators interviewed Schulenberg and searched a suburban hospital where he worked.

A spokeswoman for North Memorial Medical Center says Schulenberg was a primary care physician at its Minnetonka clinic but he no longer works for the healthcare system.

Prince died on April 21 at his Minnesota home. Autopsy results are pending.

Meanwhile a Colorado inmate has filed a paternity claim with a Minnesota court against the estate of Prince, claiming the musician is his biological father.

In filings with Carver County District Court, Calvin Q. Williams of Kansas City, Missouri, seeks DNA testing to determine if he's Prince's child.

In an affidavit included with the court filing, Williams' mother, Marsha Henson, says she had sex with Prince in July 1976 and gave birth to her son the following April.

Under Minnesota law, children are first in line to inherit, which would put Williams ahead of Prince's siblings if the court agrees he is Prince's son.

Court and prison records show Williams is at the maximum security federal prison in Florence, Colorado, after pleading guilty in 2013 to unlawfully transporting a firearm.

He was sentenced to seven years and eight months behind bars.
