Messages left by fans outside Prince's Paisley Park compound in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 21, 2016A specialist in painkiller addiction was rushing to see Prince before the music legend's death but arrived too late, a lawyer for the doctor said Wednesday. Howard Kornfeld, a California-based doctor who treats those with addictions to opioids, had been due to arrive at Prince's Minnesota compound on April 22, a day after the pop star died, his lawyer William Mauzy said. Instead, the doctor's son Andrew Kornfeld -- who planned to encourage Prince to come to California for treatment -- arrived moments before the pop superstar was declared dead and called 911 for emergency services, Mauzy said.
