More and more information keeps coming out about the cause of Prince’s death, and April 28 revealed another breakthrough. Investigators are now considering whether or not his death was due to an overdose, according to reports. We have all the details, right here.
Could this be the cause of Prince’s death? New reports on April 28 say that investigators are now focusing on overdose as a potential cause and are trying to find out how Prince got the prescription pills he was found with at the time of his death. Here’s the scoop.
It seems like investigators have now directed their efforts toward figuring out if Prince was killed by an overdose and if so, how he got the prescription pills. A law enforcement official told the Associate Press on April 28 that investigators were examining the possibility of an overdose. Furthermore, they want to know if it was a doctor that prescribed pills to Prince, and if so, who they are.
The news comes after another federal official told CNN on April 27 that Prince was in possession of painkillers when he was found dead in his Paisley Park home on April 21. They were also found in his home. Investigators want to know exactly what kind of drugs Prince had and why, though reports on April 27 said that he had developed an addiction to Percocets after taking them to cope with AIDs.
The world is still waiting to find out the official cause of death, but many reports coincide that it had to do with drugs. “We’re continuing to investigate the circumstances of Prince’s death,” Jason Kamerud, the chief deputy of the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, told Us Weekly. “The [medical examiner] will provide toxicology results with her findings.”
