The first reports/rumors are that he might have died of an overdose or related to over-medication. If so (and a big one) I find that ironic knowing that deaths by overdose have long overtaken all deaths by gunfire in the United States:

The United States is experiencing an epidemic of drug overdose (poisoning) deaths. Since 2000, the rate of deaths from drug overdoses has increased 137%, including a 200% increase in the rate of overdose deaths involving opioids (opioid pain relievers and heroin). CDC analyzed recent multiple cause-of-death mortality data to examine current trends and characteristics of drug overdose deaths, including the types of opioids associated with drug overdose deaths. During 2014, a total of 47,055 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States, representing a 1-year increase of 6.5%, from 13.8 per 100,000 persons in 2013 to 14.7 per 100,000 persons in 2014.

  1. This was the first thing that came to mind on reading the rumors of drugs being connected to Prince’s death; liberals want an end to private gun ownership supposedly due to the number of shootings, but yet they want to legalize drugs that are far more dangerous in terms of deaths. Then again look at the situation in Chicago, would there be as many shootings if it weren’t for the drug/gang culture? IMO lets get rid of drugs and gangs.

  2. Prince landed in the quad cities (Davenport, Iowa) last week with a medical emergency. It has been speculated that is was due to percocet poisoning. He received a life saving shot and continued on to Minneapolis,
