Police investigating how Prince accessed drugs

POLICE are investigating how Prince obtained prescription medication in the weeks before dying in his Minneapolis home, US media reported yesterday.

Opioid medication was reportedly found with the entertainer's body on April 21.

CNN reported that the day before he died, Prince's team contacted an opioid addiction specialist at a California rehab centre to get help for the singer.

When a representative from the centre arrived the next morning, he found the 57-year-old unresponsive in an elevator and phoned 911, the network said.
