Several pills found in the home of American pop star, Prince, after his death have been labeled as counterfeit drugs which contain opioid fentanyl.

According to officials, the drugs found in Prince’s estate in Paisley Park which have previously been erroneously labeled as Watson 385, are actually fake drugs that contain fentanyl.

Fentanyl is an artificial opioid that is 50 times more effective than heroin,and a 100 times stronger than morphine.

An official, who anonymously spoke to AP, has said that about a dozen tablets were found in the Purple  Rain’s singer’s dressing table, a vast of them found in Vitamin C and aspirin bottles.

The official also said the drugs had killed Prince.

Although, autopsy report that came out in June by Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that the mega star had died from an accidental, self-administered overdose of fentanyl, it is still shocking how Prince ingested the fentanyl.

The beloved music icon was discovered dead inside an elevator in the Paisley Park Compound, on Thursday, April 21, 2016.
