Prescription painkillers were found in Prince’s possession at the time of his death, according to multiple media reports that cited law enforcement sources.
The reports claim the pills were found in the iconic singer’s home. Many reports claim local law enforcement has turned over the investigation to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) but the Carver County Sherriff’s Office tells us that’s not the case.
“DEA is not involved in this investigation at this time,” Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud told FOX411.
A spokesperson for the DEA told FOX411,“We cannot make an official comment on that at this point.”
The Carver Country Sherriff’s Office has been handling the investigation until now. Kamerud declined to comment on reports claiming painkillers were found at Prince’s home.
Prince was found on April 21st in the elevator of his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minn.
Deputies and medical personnel found the 57-year-old music icon unresponsive when they arrived at his home, and they performed CPR but it was unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. local time.
The singer’s death came six days after he was rushed to an Illinois hospital after falling ill while returning to Minneapolis from a concert in Atlanta.
An autopsy was completed last week on the body of the seven-time Grammy winner but the results have not been made public. The results of a “full toxicology scan could likely take weeks,” the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office told FOX411 last week.
