Music legend Prince died one day before he was scheduled to meet a doctor who specializes in addiction treatment for a “life-saving mission,” the doctor’s lawyer said at a news conference on Wednesday.
Kornfeld, who runs Recovery Without Walls, a clinic in Mill Valley, California, planned to fly to Minnesota to meet with Prince on April 22, Mauzy said.
In the meantime, his son, Andrew Kornfeld, a staff member at his clinic, traveled to Minnesota on April 21 for an initial discussion.
California doctor Howard Kornfeld was first contacted by Prince representatives on April 20, one day before the singer’s body was discovered at his home, attorney William Mauzy told reporters.
“Dr. Kornfeld felt that his mission was a life-saving mission,” Mauzy said.
The news came shortly before federal authorities, including the Drug Enforcement Administration, announced they were joining the investigation into Prince’s death.
In a statement, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Minnesota said it would join the Carver County Sheriff’s ongoing probe into Prince’s death.
The cause of death remains undetermined, and it could be weeks before autopsy results are released. Police have said they found no signs of suicide or obvious trauma.
