Source: Percocet was found in Prince's system

The painkiller Percocet was present in Prince’s body when he was found dead April 21 in a Paisley Park elevator, a source familiar with the investigation said Wednesday.

However, it is not yet clear whether the potent opioid caused or contributed to the musician’s death, the source stressed.

The revelation came on the same day that federal law enforcement authorities joined the investigation into the death of Prince, who was seeking emergency help for an addiction to opioid painkillers during the week of his collapse.
