Did Percocet kill Prince? This is the question that investigators are trying to definitively determine about the superstar’s sudden death. Despite headliners that state “Prince found with Painkiller Percocet in System” and the fact that his autopsy has been completed and the singer already laid to rest, the cause of death has yet to be confirmed. Sources however say the following situations leading up to and surrounding the singer’s last days’ leave little doubt that “Percocet” the highly addictive pain medication leave was a major contributor in his untimely death.
