    David Chanen, writing for the StarTribune, on how the investigation into Prince’s death is now part of a criminal probe:

    The law says that “investigative data collected or created by a law enforcement agency in order to prepare a case against a person, whether known or unknown, for the commission of a crime or other offense for which the agency has primary investigative responsibility are confidential or protected nonpublic while the investigation is active.”

    The exception citation doesn’t mean that criminal charges will be filed at the completion of the Sheriff’s Office inquiry, only that charges are a possibility.

    The use of multiple prescription pills has become so normalized, my theory is he had a bad mix. From the sounds of the way the law is structured, my theory is they're taking advantage of it to have a quiet investigation before a doctor is blamed for prescribing irresponsibly.
