Police have launched a criminal investigation into the circumstances of Prince’s death that bizarrely echoed that of longtime pop rival, Michael Jackson.

The Daily Star reported that police have refused to rule out homicide and are looking for doctors or “handlers” who may have overprescribed drugs.

A police source said: “A crack team have been assigned with learning minute by minute what Prince was doing during his final days.

But the investigation will also look into his activities over the last two years."

Prince, 57, was found dead at his Minnesota home last Thursday.

The Purple One was reportedly given a 'save shot' commonly used to treat a drug overdose and told to stay in hospital.

We know he ignored those instructions to perform another gig which may have brought on his death.


Authorities are looking into Prince’s medical history and, more importantly, who treated him.

MJ fans will remember Dr. Conrad Murray was found guild of involuntary manslaughter for causing the pop star's death from a massive overdose of the general anesthetic, propofol.

He was sentenced to four years in prison and was out after two for good behaviour.
