Detective Seeks Record on Prince Airport Stop 04 May 16

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Detectives in Minnesota have asked authorities in Moline, Illinois, for fire and ambulance records related to the emergency landing of a plane carrying Prince less than a week before he died.

Carver County Sheriff’s Detective Chris Nelson made the request of the city clerk in an April 28 email. Nelson also asked a detective for the name of the hospital that treated Prince.

A law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation into Prince’s death says investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose. That official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media, also said investigators were also looking into whether Prince overdosed on the plane in Moline.

The Associated Press obtained the emails through a public records request. It wasn’t clear Tuesday whether Moline had fulfilled the request.
