Did opioids kill Prince? Late reports on a cause of death.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

A source telling the AP Prince Rogers Nelson died of an opioid overdose. The 57-year-old pop star was found dead April 21 at his Paisley Park home and studios in Minnesota.

Investigators are examining whether a doctor had prescribed him drugs in the preceding weeks. The superstar had a reputation for clean living, but longtime friend and collaborator Sheila E confirmed that the singer had physical issues from performing, citing hip and knee problems that she said came from years of jumping off risers and stage speakers in heels.
