Some new light has been shed on Prince‘s lethal overdose.

The music icon had “exceedingly high” levels of fentanyl in his system when he died, according to a confidential toxicology report obtained by the Associated Press.

The report details the concentration of fentanyl in Prince’s blood as 67.8 micrograms per liter, noting that people have died from as little as 3 micrograms per liter and as high as 58.

For that reason, the level of fentanyl in Prince’s blood is said in the report to be much too high, even for someone who’s a chronic pain patient.

The report also shows Prince’s liver had a concentration of 450 micrograms per kilogram, adding that levels beyond 69 micrograms per kilogram are often a sign of overdose or fatal toxicity cases. Their findings suggest the 57-year-old took the drug orally, while fentanyl found in the blood and liver suggest it circulated some time before he passed away.

As we reported, an investigation following the singer’s death found pills at his home that were mislabeled as hydrocodone but were actually fentanyl. Prince’s initial autopsy also claimed he died of a self-administered fentanyl overdose.

However, experts say there is no “lethal level” at which the painkiller can kill. A person who takes prescription opioids regularly builds up a tolerance over time, and a dose that could kill one person might aid another.

The supplier of these drugs has not been determined, based on publiclicy released information. The lead prosecutor in the country where Prince died said last week he was reviewing reports and would make a decision on whether to charge anyone “in the near future.”
