A week after Prince's unexpected death, authorities are one step closer to figuring out how the music legend died.
On Thursday, law enforcement told the Associated Press that they are investigating the possibility that the Purple Rain artist suffered an overdose.
As we reported, sources close to the 57-year-old said the musician was prescribed Percocet in 2009 and slowly became addicted.
On April 15 after a performance in Atlanta, the Grammy winner reportedly overdosed on the drug while in flight, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois. Police are trying to figure out if a doctor was present for this ordeal.
Additionally, officials are investigating what type of drugs were on the plane, and what kind were at his Paisley Park house.
As we wrote on Thursday, police obtained a warrant to search his Minnesota mansion.
Our thoughts and prayers go to Prince's friends and family during this difficult time.

We had a feeling this would happen.
According to sources connected with TMZ, Prince's only full-blooded sibling Tyka Nelson lost it at a meeting to discuss the late icon's assets. The singer's half-siblings Omarr and Alfred were also in attendance.
Per the insiders, Tyka and Alfred got into a heated discussion two hours into the meeting after he voiced his displeasure over not being invited to his brother's memorial service since Ms. Nelson was the one who had planned the intimate event. The convo apparently got SO heated that the musician's estranged sister stormed out of the room.
To make matters even more tense, the half-siblings accused T.N. of trying to get a bigger chunk of Prince's estate even though under Minnesotan law it doesn't matter if you're only-half related to the deceased. Basically, Tyka is acting greedy.
After the awkward sit down, someone appointed from the 57-year-old's bank took Alfred to his brother's Paisley Park mansion so he could properly grieve. It's nice to know he was given the chance to say goodbye.
Sheesh. We really hope Tyka and her six siblings can work this out — this isn't about money at the end of the day. Prince's legacy and memory is way more important.
So, whose side are YOU on?

Tracy Morgan really loved Prince!
In an essay for Billboard Magazine, Trace recalled his favorite and most hilarious memories of the late icon. From "going gay" for the singer to bonding over the legend's music with his late dad, Morgan's message covered A LOT of feelings!
For those who don't know, Morgan spent some quality time with the 57-year-old throughout the years. The first time was when T.M. attended a wild party at the Prince's El Lay area home.
Speaking on the fun memory, the poppa recalled:
"About seven years ago, I went to a party at Prince's house in Los Angeles. We had to take a bus there – Jennifer Lopez, everybody was on this bus — and Prince performed with his band in the living room. The liquor was flowing and everybody was getting nice. At the end of the night, me and my boy Bradley were drunk. We had these two girls on the sofa and we were talking, joking, laughing. Prince and his wife came downstairs and they had on purple pajamas. He said, "Tracy, get the f– out!" As I walked out the door, I grabbed him by the back of the neck and I pulled him close to me. I noticed that mole on his face — he was so pretty, I turned gay for about five seconds — and I said, "My father loved 'When Doves Cry.' " And he said, "Yeah, yeah. Just get the f– out.'"
Ha! This anecdote is everything! We don't doubt a lot of people would have "turned gay" for the musician!
The funny man went on to add:
"Prince's music taught me how to suck titties! He taught me how to be gentle. Because of him, I once sucked a titty for an hour. At the end, it looked like a tater tot."
Oh man… there's so much too dissect in that comment. We're glad the Minnesota native was such a source of inspiration for Tracy!
