A Minnesota prosecutor will announce Thursday whether anyone will be charged in the music superstar Prince’s drug overdose death in 2016.
Carver County Attorney Mark Metz scheduled a news conference for Thursday morning in Chaska to announce a decision, the county attorney’s office said in a brief statement Wednesday. The statement gave no further details and said Metz wouldn’t take questions at the news conference.
Metz’s team has been reviewing the Carver County Sheriff’s Office investigation since March.
