Report: Prince Died From Opioid Overdose

CHICAGO (AP) – A law-enforcement official tells The Associated Press that tests
show Prince died of an opioid overdose.

The 57-year-old singer was found dead April 21 at his Minneapolis-area estate.

The official, who is close to the investigation, spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Investigators have been reviewing whether Prince died of an overdose and
whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks before his death.
