Paternity Claim: Prince estate lawyers to get blood sample

Superstar’s autopsy found painkiller Percocet in his system

Music superstar Prince's autopsy found the painkiller Percocet in his system, the Minneapolis Star Tribune and KSTP-TV reported on Thursday, citing sources close to the investigation.

Prince also had a dangerously low red blood cell count, indicating he had been ill, Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP-TV said, citing two unnamed law enforcement officials.

Meanwhile, lawyers charged with untangling the multimillion-dollar estate of late pope star Prince can get a sample of his blood from the coroner so they can analyze the singer's DNA should a paternity claim arise, a judge ruled on Friday.

Prince, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson, was found dead at age 57 at his Paisley Park home-studio complex in a Minneapolis suburb on April 21.
