Source: Prince Had Opioid Medication On Him At Time Of Death:
Authorities investigating the death of music legend Prince found prescription opioid medication on his person and in his Minnesota home, a law enforcement official told CNN on Wednesday.
The pills are commonly used to treat pain, and investigators have brought in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to help with the case, the source said.
Investigators believe a health scare about a week before Prince’s death, which caused an unscheduled landing of his plane in Illinois, was likely the result of a reaction to the pain medication, the official said.

Secret Service Proposing ‘Taller And Stronger’ White House Fence:
The U.S. Secret Service is proposing a “taller and stronger” White House fence following an increasing number of people attempting to breach the security encircling the executive mansion.
The proposed new design of the fence incorporates “anti-climb features” and “intrusion detection technology,” a Secret Service spokeswoman said in a statement. The new design features a fence that is 11 feet and seven inches tall.
The statement did not say how much the new fence would cost.
Trump, Clinton Score Major Victories:
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton scored huge victories Tuesday that bring them closer to a monumental duel for the White House in the fall.
Trump’s political strength was on display with a clean sweep of races in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Clinton delivered big wins in Maryland and Pennsylvania — the biggest prizes of the night — along with Delaware and Connecticut. Bernie Sanders picked up his sole victory of the night in Rhode Island.
The wins for Trump — following a massive victory last week in New York — move him significantly closer to the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination outright and avoid a contested Republican convention. That historic prospect is now the only way rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich could stop Trump from becoming the GOP nominee.
