    According to a law enforcement official close to the investigation behind Prince’s death, the singer reportedly died of an opioid overdose. The Associated Press was the first to report the news, saying the official “spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.”

    Prince died at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on April 21 at the age of 57. An autopsy was performed the next day, but results were inconclusive and required further toxicology testing to determine the cause of death. At a press conference on April 22, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olsen told reporters there were no obvious signs of trauma on the body and police had to reason to believe it was a suicide.

    Authorities refused to discuss whether prescription drugs were found in the musician’s home, but TMZ was already reporting that Prince overdosed on Percocet the week before his death — accounting for a more likely reason his plane had to make an emergency landing on April 15.

    The website later reported that multiple sources told them Prince was addicted to Percocet for years before his death. Sources claimed the musician was first prescribed the painkiller when he began experiencing hip problems in 2009. CNN also reported that law enforcement sources found prescription opioid medication on the musician at his time of death.

    Opioid abuse is ruining so many American lives. Such a sad epidemic.

    I'm still kind of surprised that it wasn't the AIDS.

    Whatever you do brother, stay away from the Joyce Kilmer rest area, a trucker named Cliffy Monroe ripped me off on 4 different occasions. Almost impossible to make a buck when they don't pay

    Turnpike rest stops are for noobs. Gotta hit the ones on 295, where it is just parking spots, a couple picnic benches, a shit house and woods. Like the one named after Howard Stern.

    He probably needed hip transplant and wouldn't receive blood because of his dumb religious beliefs. Opioid abuse was started by the oxy drug company that went to all the doctors and told them that it wasn't addictive. They are the real criminals.

    I was wondering why he just didn't get hip surgery, or whatever was needed to fix this pain. My dad had the surgery and was like a new man in under 60 days.

    I had forgotten about the religion thing... might explain about no surgery. Ug. What a waste.

    Guaranteed it was the Hillbilly Heroin. Body adapts. Got to get stronger and stronger meds. Would not surprise me if he had Dilaudid in the mix.
