House Sitter Allegedly Overdoses In Former SNL Star Norm Macdonald's Home

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadSaturday Night LiveHealthScary!Viral: News

A 23-year-old man was found dead in comedian Norm Macdonald's condominium from what police suspect to be an overdose.

According to multiple reports, Michael Huettner was friends from high school with the Saturday Night Live star's son, and was house-sitting this week as Norm traveled the world.

Unfortunately, Michael's body was reportedly found by his own parents after they hadn't heard from him in some time and went to check on him when his girlfriend told them he had been watching the KFC spokesperson's home and cat.

When Huettner's parents arrived, the door to the home was open, and they walked in to find Michael dead on a bed, surrounded by multiple pills and bottles — including some oxycodone.

The family allegedly told investigators that their son had previous issues with oxy, and thus, police believe the man died from an overdose at the scene.

In the meantime, Macdonald is cooperating fully with authorities, as prescription pills of his own — which were legally prescribed by a doctor — were also found at the scene.

Rest in peace, Michael.

Did Two Of Prince's Doctors Cross The Line & Contribute To The Singer's Fatal Drug Overdose? Here's What Police Are Working On Now!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadHealthAddiction


It may be several months before we know exactly what led to Prince's fatal overdose back in April.

As the criminal death investigation rages on, TMZ reports three agencies — the FBI, the DEA, and the Carver County District Attorney's Office — are all working together to determine if two of the 57-year-old's doctors crossed the line with giving Prince access to drugs.

The medical professionals in question? We've told you their names before, physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld.

As a refresher, Schulenberg and Kornfeld's son Andrew were both present in the Purple Rain musician's home when he was found dead in his elevator after OD'ing on Fentanyl. Andrew had tons of synthetic opiates to treat addiction in his possession.

Since the tragic passing, Schulenberg has not been working at his clinic while poppa Kornfeld continues to practice at his Marin County, CA office.

If the state files charges against either or both of the doctors, the case will go to the District Attorney instead of the grand jury.

Woof. We're just hoping for some concrete answers sooner rather than later.

Lamar Odom & Scott Disick Confide In Each Other About Addiction In Heavy New KUWTK Teaser!

no title

This is so scary and real.

Scott Disick and Lamar Odom sit down together in this week's upcoming episode of KUWTK and have a heart-to-heart about the former NBA-er's recent near-death experience and recovery following a highly-publicized drug overdose.

Disick, of course, has struggled with his own addiction issues in the past — and while the two are usually fun, funny, and light-hearted in their KUWTK storylines, considering what each has gone through recently puts a decidedly different spin on their interaction.

Police Are Investigating How Prince Obtained His Lethal Prescription Of Fentanyl

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsMusic MinuteLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadHealth

We just hope for answers!

As we reported, Prince's autopsy revealed that the singer died from a self-administered Fentanyl overdose.

But how did the music legend obtain the powerful opioid?!

Related: Fans React To Prince's Autopsy Results

That's what law officials are trying to figure out. As of now, state and federal prosecutors are investigating exactly how the 57-year-old received the potent substance.

According to sources, police are questioning whether a doctor prescribed the medication to a person who eventually gave it to the Purple Rain musician.

Authorities have already obtained search warrants for Prince's house, his primary physician, and the Walgreens pharmacy which filled his Rx. However, there is currently no link between the three points of interest.

If a doctor illegally prescribes a drug that kills a patient, he or she could face up to 25 years in jail.

All we want is for justice to be brought down on anyone that breaks the law!
