MINNEAPOLIS — A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that investigators are looking into whether Prince died from a drug overdose and whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks before his death.

The official says that among the things investigators are looking at is whether a doctor was on a plane that made an emergency landing in Illinois less than a week before Prince died.

The law enforcement official has been briefed on the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The official says investigators are also looking into what kind of drugs were on plane and at his house in suburban Minneapolis.
