Investigators looking to find doctors who supplied Prince with prescription drugs
MINNEAPOLIS – A law enforcement official says investigators looking into Prince’s death are seeking to identify every doctor and pharmacy that may have supplied the singer prescription drugs, including online sources.
The official told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the search for Internet suppliers involves examining computer drives from Prince’s Minnesota home, where he was found dead on April 21.
The official has been briefed on the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to speak to the media.
The official says investigators want to determine whether any doctor broke the law by overprescribing drugs or prescribing drugs without first giving Prince a requisite physical.
At least two doctors have been identified as having contact with Prince or his staff before he died. Neither is accused of wrongdoing.
