Reports: Prescription Drugs Found with Prince's Body
Media reports say police discovered prescription drugs with Prince when the entertainer was found dead at his home last week.
Several news organizations, including ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC, are citing law enforcement sources as the basis of the information. They do not further identify the sources, however. The reports say prescription painkillers were found on the 57-year-old artist and in his home. The Minneapolis Star Tribune also reported that it was not clear whether the drugs were prescribed to Prince.
Prince died April 21. Doctors have completed an examination of his body but results are not expected for several weeks.
Several news groups also reported that Minnesota investigators have asked the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for help.
However, A Carver County police official Wednesday night said the DEA "is not part of the investigation at this time." DEA officials have not commented.
