6:00 pm
and spout off about the "factor," word of the day, do not be unxious when writing to the "factor." please always remember the spin stops right here. we're definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight, troubling new reports surfacing in the death of the music superstar prince. as america remembers an icon gone soon. welcome to the "kelly file." i'm megyn kelly. we have just learned that an autopsy will be conducted on prince's body tomorrow. this after he was found dead this morning at his minnesota estate known as paisley park at just 57 years old. in just the last hour the website, the outlet that first broke the news of the singer's death, published an explosive report saying that prince was treated for a drug overdose just six days before death. you may have heard that his reps have claimed the singer had been battling the flu this month, but
6:01 pm
he performed in concert one week ago in atlanta. afterward his plane was en route back in minnesota when it made an emergency landing in illinois. prince was reportedly treated at a hospital for a few hours before he left. tmz reports he was given something there called a save shot, which is typically used to counteract the effects of an opiate. news of his hospitalization broke but prince told worried fans to wait a few days before they wasted any prayers on him. days later he would be dead. tmz also obtaining this emergency dispatch call. it is tough to hear in places. this is the best version we've been able to produce so far. listen. listen. >> cpr started. we have live cameras outside of
6:02 pm
the compound where prince was found in case there are any news conferences this hour. plus, we have been scrambling some of the best guests in the country for you this evening. in a moment we'll speak with dr. michael baden, attorney mark eiglarsh, mark fuhrman and more. we begin tonight with the organization that broke this news. harvey levin is executive producer of harvey, good to see you tonight. this is an explosive report you've just put up. tell us what the very latest is. >> well when we broke the story that last friday he was rushed to the hospital in moline, illinois, his people told us that he was rushed there because he had the flu. and frankly it did not make sense to us, and i'll tell you why. he had just performed as you said in atlanta, did a very good concert. his voice was great. he seemed great. jumped on a plane. an hour and a half later, 48 minutes from his final destination in minnesota, the plane is diverted, makes an
6:03 pm
emergency landing in moline and he is rushed to the hospital by ambulance. now, when his people said he had the flu, it really stopped us in our tracks because what we thought was, why wouldn't he tough it out for 48 minutes and be at home? but they said it was the flu. he was there for three hours and left. what we are told by multiple sources is that they made the emergency landing because of radio calls indicating that he may have had a drug overdose and that it was so serious that they gave him treatment at the airport on the tarmac, then took him to the hospital. in the emergency room they gave him the save shot that you referred to and then doctors recommended, we're told that he stay for 24 hours. his people then said, he needs a private room. the doctors informed them that there was no private room at that hospital, and they said with we are out of here then. and the doctors viszadvised against
6:04 pm
it, said it's a bad idea. but they still took him brought him back to the airport and took him home. so that is the story with we are getting from multiple people that it was not the flu but he was treated for what they said was a drug overdose. >> and when you look at the circumstances of today's reports in terms of his death, they said he had the flu still and that he died in an elevator. so what are you hearing about the circumstances of his death today? >> well you know look you hear a lot, and we haven't posted most of it because we're trying to confirm various things. but i will tell you the curious thing megyn, is that you know if he had the flu, usually people who have the flu are kind of down low and then they gradually get better. with prince he was bouncing back and forth because, remember, in atlanta he was great. an hour and a half later he's having a life threatening problem. the next day he's great again because he went to paisley park
6:05 pm
held a dance party, and then walked up to the crowd and addressed them. and everybody who was there said he looked great, he sounded great and that's not consistent with somebody who has the flu. on top of that during all of this, he had at least four visits to his local walgreens pharmacy, and that's not particularly unusual except he had somebody else go inside. he was in the car. and we have a picture of him last night in the parking lot. we're told he was sweating and pacing waiting for the person to come back out. and it's just all a weird kind of story about a guy who one minute seems fine and the next minute is in dire trouble. >> so last night he was seen at the walgreens? >> 7:30. >> so prince goes himself and is there pacing around the parking lot? is that what you're saying? >> he is in the parking lot. somebody with him is in walgreens. again the fourth trip. but the people we talked to -- we have the picture up that said
6:06 pm
he was agitated was pacing he was sweating. and hours later he was dead. >> so many of these musicians and celebrities have a history of drug use that becomes public for one reason or another. is that the case with prince? >> we are told that he has had problems. and the question is how recently did he have the problems. that again is something that i'm not really ready to talk about. i mean obviously this is something that we're working on and it all -- you know the dots are increasingly connecting. we are told officially at least that they are going to do toxicology on him and the toxicology will take two weeks. so we won't know definitively until the toxicology comes back. hopefully we will know something then. but again, i think the moline trip at least puts a little bit of context to what's going on of life was he leading? >> a very private almost secretive life, megyn. what i'm told is that he
6:07 pm
actually closed his circle some in the last year or so. and a couple of interesting things did happen. he has been talking about writing his memoirs for a while now for several years, and somebody very close to him, one of the few people who remained close tol that a month ago he told his people, i'm going to write these memoirs. i feel like i need to do it now. and in the last month he wrote 50 pages. so something inspired him to write these 50 pages. i don't know. look, there are some people who think it's premonition, some people just think he timely got off the dime to do it. but whatever it was, he suddenly got inspired over the last month. that aside, a very private guy who not only doesn't like his picture taken in public but really kind of closed himself off to most people. >> who did he surround himself with, any family? >> well, he had a girlfriend who was with him a lot. he had a manage he had some close associates who were with him.
6:08 pm
but not a lot of people. i mean, he was not this kind of social guy who interacted with a lot of people. i talked to a journalist today who -- what am i saying? it's your network. i was trying to be diplomatic here. it was greta. greta said that some time ago she got a call from out of the blue, and it was prince. he was just grousing about i think some record label aend wanted to know his legal rights on something. greta said he was on the phone for well over an hour and he didn't want to go on the air. he just wanted to talk to her. so it was kind of this afemoral life that he led that is not kind of the ordinary life. but prince was not an ordinary guy. >> so what's your understanding about where this investigation stands? because there's going to be an investigation into his death. >> there already is megyn. the authorities there are investigating. we know that they are trying to contact the hospital in moline
6:09 pm
trying to get the medical records because they think it will help them. but they are obviously -- they're doing this autopsy. they are going to do a toxicology toxicology. it's going to tell them a lot. and they're interviewing people. but they are treating this as a full-on investigation. >> minnesota state authorities. >> yes. >> do you know who found the body? >> i do not know who found the body. we just got a transcript of the 911 call and you know honestly i was working on this other story megyn. one of my producers was doing the transcript. but my understanding of it from what i was overhearing as they were putting it up is that the person who called 911 didn't even know the city they were in. so it doesn't sound like it's somebody who lived around there or was with him a lot in that town. >> harvey thank you very much. we appreciate your time tonight. all the best to you. >> you, too, megyn. >> with tmz suggesting that prince was treated for what appears to be some serious
6:10 pm
symptoms just days before his death, there are growing questions as to the exact cause of the music icon's death. the associated press is reporting that the medical examiners have prince's body in their possession and will perform an official autopsy at some point tomorrow. dr. michael baden is a forensic pathologist who has testified in a number of high-profile cases including the criminal trials of o.j. simpson and phil spector. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> first of all, would a family member would have to consent to an autopsy? >> no. not once it comes into the medical examiner's office. the office in minnesota they have a very good medical examiner's office. they have the authority to do an autopsy if they feel it's in the public interest. >> and toxicology as well? >> absolutely. the toxicology -- they'll do a full toxicology. the toxicology itself can be done in a few days if they take it out of order. they don't put it -- which they will do in this case. whether they release it right away or not depends on what the sheriff and other people want to do. >> would they -- i mean if
6:11 pm
somebody had tried to administer a save shot one of these -- in this incident harvey is reported it happened last friday when he had to made an emergency landing in illinois during his flight, unconfirmed by us that's what harvey at tmz is reporting, would that be in his body still if he had another one? >> the naloxone could still be found in the body or the hair actually. it stays in the hair. but the death would not be from an injection or from taking the drug, whatever it was, friday. he would have had to take another dose more recently. >> if it were a drug overdose, when would he have had to take the drugs? >> if it's a narcotic drug within 12 or 24 -- within 12 hours or so before he died. >> when they called on 911, the -- first of all, the caller didn't know the address from which he was calling. we don't know who the caller is. they first said there's someone here who is unconscious before saying the person is dead. so it appears to have been clear to that person who found prince's body that he was dead. and shortly after arriving there
6:12 pm
the paramedics declared him dead it sounds like within a half hour. what does that tell you? >> he had been dead for a while. it's the same thing as michael jackson. he's already dead but they try their best to see if with cpr he can be revived. when he can't be they'll pronounce him dead a little while later. but whatever drugs he takes will be in the system and be able to be found toxicologyically if he took drugs. >> does the person taking the autopsy consider the anecdotal information pacing and sweating outside the walgreens and the incident on the plane? >> they may consider it depending on how much toxicology there is to do. but he or she is not going to make a decision based on that evidence. the decision will be made on wh the toxicology and the autopsy show because even so before the autopsy maybe he did have some kind of heart disease or lung disease, pulmonary a.m.em
6:13 pm
embolism or something missed. it sounds like an overdose. but the autopsy is there to examine any other possibility. >> the reps of course are saying it was the flu, that he had the flu and he's been struggling with it for a week. he's 57 years old. what are the odds of that? >> the odds of that in this story are not very great, unfortunately given the history. the flu should not have as harvey levin pointed out, either the flu makes you worse and worse and you don't go partying and dancing or you get another bout -- heart disease can cause that, a blootd clot can cause that. all of these things will be looked at. but the most likely thing from the history is unfortunately, some kind of drug overdose. >> we'll find out more in the coming days. >> within a few days. they will put a rush on the toxicology. whether they'll release it or not right away depends on what the sheriff and other people
6:14 pm
want to do. >> doctor great to see you. >> good to see you megyn. >> our trace gallon ger has been on the phone to investigators this evening. he joins us from our breaking news desk in los angeles right after this break. plus, dr. marc siegel has been reviewing what we knew about prince's health and what the significance of the fact that he left that hospital against medical advice. he's here next. and then former lapd homicide detective mark fuhrman knows the drill on high profile cases. he's here on what investigators are likely doing right now and what we can expect tomorrow. the news is breaking right here right now. we will discuss the legacy of prince coming you. up. ♪ why do we scream at each other ♪ ♪ this is what it sounds like when doves cry ♪ it's intelligent enough to warn of danger from virtually anywhere. it's been smashed and driven. it's perceptive enough to detect other vehicles on the road. it's been shaken and pummeled.

6:19 pm
while there is no word yet on the official cause of death, just last week after what's now believed to be prince's final performance his plane did make an emergency landing in illinois. less than an hour from his ultimately destination where reportedly he was rushed to a hospital to receive treatment for an ongoing bout with the flu according to his reps. tmz says it was something very different. in a moment we'll speak with dr. marc siegel about his take on the death and what happened at the hospital. first we go to trace gallagher who's been calling on these reports. >> we should tell you megyn we've reached out to prince's publicist about these reports of drug overdoses and haven't gotten a response. we got off the phone from the carver county sheriff's department. they say they can't comment about the drug overdose because it's not in their jurisdiction. but any type of report that deals with drugs or drug overdoses will be worked into their investigation. we know that prince was found unresponsive inside the elevator in his paisley park home. and just as you and harvey levin
6:20 pm
were touching on a little earlier we just got a copy of the transcript of that 911 call made from the compound this morning. it's very interesting because the caller starts out by saying that prince is unconscious, then a few seconds later he says quote, he appears very nervous okay, we have um yeah we have um so yeah the person is dead. the dispatcher replies, okay get me the address, please. and the caller responds okay, i'm working on it. clearly not knowing where hewas. the dispatcher then says, concentrate on that. the caller says and the people are just distraught meaning there were more than one or two inside that compound. i understand they're distraught says the dispatcher. then the caller says look, i'm working on it working on it, talking about the address. finally he says do we know how the person died? the caller said, i don't know. we have confirmed the autopsy will be performed tomorrow results again could be weeks away. prince's representatives will only say that he had been
6:21 pm
suffering flu for several weeks. we know that two weeks ago prince also cited the flu as the reason for canceling a couple of shows from his piano and a microphone tour and the official explanation as to why his plane had to make an emergency landing in moline illinois is because prince was suffering severe dehydration. clearly tmz is not buying that explanation. the day after being released from the hospital prince appeared at a concert held at his compound that he arranged to reassure his fans about his health. in recent years he has also spoken publicly about his battle with epilepsy as a child, saying his parents didn't know how to handle his seizures. he later said he believes he was healed by divine intervention. in recent years, the 57-year-old singer reportedly got very serious about religion and his health, becoming a vegan and apparently speaking out about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. again, we have contacted the publicist. no response.
6:22 pm
we're still working on getting more information from the authorities about this report of a potential drug overdose last week, megyn. >> trace, thank you. i want to emphasize that has not been independently confirmed by fox news. that is tmz reporting, they're also the ones who broke the accurate news this morning of prince's death. joining me now fox news medical correspondent dr. marc siegel. dr. siegel take away the tmz report for right now. you're looking at this the circumstances of it. would you have bought flu as an explanation for this? >> i would have bought flu because flu is a great enabler. flu can cause other things to occur. two to three greater times of heart attack 57 years old, risk of pneumonia. he could have had that. also that he was said even tear he could have had a blood clot. these are causes of sudden death. the problem is he got back up. usually with the flu you don't get back up. you don't bounce back up and suddenly you're performing again and then you don't feel well
6:23 pm
again. the episodic quality of this makes me think it could have been something in addition. it doesn't mean he didn't have the flu. make that's true. but i'm concern birthday this issue of why is he getting better and then not getting better? >> harvey is getting specific. he's saying that there were radio calls suggesting that he had a drug overdose on that plane. they appear to have gotten some actual transmissions or have spoken to somebody who heard them. reporting that when he was 48 minutes from landing going from atlanta to minnesota they had to bring that plane down in illinois because of him. to be that ill from flu when the next day you were on your feet dancing does sound inconsistent. >> really really, really unlikely. that usually wouldn't happen. the flu really knocks you flat and takes weeks to recover from. the thing i want people to know about drug overdoses is they suppress breathing. and also these drugs stay in your system for a long time. and the reason the save shot wouldn't have gotten rid of this is it just temporarily reverses the effect of vicodin, percocet, heroin, whichever one it is. it reverses it temporarily.
6:24 pm
megyn patients like that if they're suffering from a drug overdose don't just get a shot of narcan. they end up in a narcan drip in the hospital in the icu. >> they're reporting he went to the e.r. that the doctors urged him to stay at least 24 hours. but he left against medical advice. you know that was last friday, however. it's been nearly a week since that happened. this save shot the narcan is that what it's called? can you get that at walgreens? could he have gotten not a drug but a save shot there? >> i believe that. that's possible in most states. it was mroblly the case there. but again it's a very dangerous way to live. it wears off. then you're craving more of the narcotic. you take that. it stays in your system. you'd almost have to be a physician to deal with that accurately. even then. so if that's the story, it's not surprising because, again, the main thing we worry about -- and there's been a 200% increase of drug overdose deaths since the year 2000 with this kind of
6:25 pm
medication. >> let's talk about that. we've also had a major problem in this country of prescription drug abuse. prescription drug abuse. and we saw with the michael jackson case in that case he had a doctor who enabled it and really wound up convicted. this happens where a doctor does not uphold the hippocratic oath and helps a patient abuse him or herself. how does the medical body police against this? how many doctors are there out there willing to enable drug habits in this way? >> i think your use of the -- >> not this way of prince but the way of michael jackson. >> the word "enable" is right. there's a gray area. somebody is on the way out of your office and they say, by the way, doc, could i have my percocet prescription my vicodin prescription? new york state has a new system called i staff where all physicians have to go to a website and list when they give nar cot ibs. i can see when another doctor gave it. >> can't you get them online? >> absolutely. >> some of them you can get online. >> absolutely.
6:26 pm
>> what stops that? >> nothing. that's why people are dying. it's a real epidemic in the united states. >> that is just so wrong. >> then by the way they don't get the prescription drugs. they go to the street corner and get heroin in a brown paper bag for 10 bucks. even if i don't give it to the patient they get it as hair win. >> dr. siegel good to see you. >> you too. >> we've been watching live pictures at prince's compound where crowds are growing bigger. i mean this guy not only was a music icon but a philanthropist a thinker, he was intro expectative. to hear that report of trace that he was speaking out on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. we're going to go live to our reporter in moments to see what the folks are saying there on the ground in minnesota. plus former prosecutor now defense attorney mark eiglarsh is here as well. he can talk about the chain of events. who may end up handling this case. you can believe the police is hand investigating this right now. how this may end up, stay with us.

♪ we're gonna party like it's 1999 ♪ breaking tonight, we are learning new information about events leading up to the death of iconic singer prince including reports from tmz saying he had been treated for a drug overdose just six days before his death. his camp has not yet denied that, but they have claimed this was all due to flu, including the moment that his plane needed to make an emergency landing six days ago. all day long, mourners have been converging near prince's estate where the 57-year-old was found dead around 10:00 a.m. that is where we find our an matt finn live in chanhassen minnesota. matt? >> reporter: good evening. we are at paisley park studios, the large compound outside of minneapolis. it has very large buildings and
6:32 pm
sound studios it's described as a place where prince made and produced music but also a place where prince lived for a while. people have been pouring in all day long leaving behind balloons and flowers and cards, most of that in prince's signature purple color. now we have reached out to authorities local and state. police say they cannot give us any information surrounding prince's death right now because this is an active death investigation. there are authorities arriving coming and going, off the property. the sheriff's office has only said to us that it responded to a call at 9:45 this morning. they found prince it an elevator. they tried to resuscitate him with cpr. he was pronounced dead a little while later. prince held public dance parties in which he invited people to the property charging between $10 and $40 and reportedly would give some of the money to charity. we ran into a woman named karen. she said she was a lifelong prince fan. she was inside the property with prince just last saturday. was there any indication that he was suffering from some life threatening illness?
6:33 pm
>> no. prince is typically pretty soft-spoken when he comes out and talks. he talked a few minutes, showed us a guitar and a brand-new piano that was built for him and welcomed the crowd, made some jokes. and he looked pretty good. >> reporter: so you were face to face with prince just a couple of days ago. what was your impression after leaving? >> oh, it was a great time. it's always a great time out here at paisley park. it was a dance party. great music. great sound system. to see prince is always a treat. >> reporter: there are a lot of headlines ss including the tmz report that he could have suffered from drug overdose. you said there were no drug orz alcohol at the parties and there was strong security. >> i would doubt that. i have a hard time believing that, given the security that is here and cell phone cameras, water, energy drinks were served here, no tobacco. i would be shocked. >> reporter: would you be shocked to learn that he did die potentially of a drug overdose? >> oh, of course. >> reporter: karen, thank you
6:34 pm
for your time. of course megyn, the autopsy is schedulexedscheduled for tomorrow. we'll keep you updated as the story develops. >> matt, thank you. joining me now criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor mark eiglarsh. good to see you. >> good to see you megyn. >> what a thing to hear. at these rock events this one at his home his compound no alcohol allowed, no tobacco allowed. he had spoken out against drugs. we have not confirmed this tmz report so we do not know whether this is in fact the case. but they are citing radio dispatches according to harvey from the day they had to land that plane suggesting he had a drug overdose. as an investigator, you know back when you were a criminal prosecutor, how would you begin to investigate this case? >> well, first, let's start with the body. let's find out what the medical examiner is saying then work backwards. if this was a homicide meaning at the hand of someone else they've got to figure out the
6:35 pm
source assuming it's a drug overdose, of the drugs and see if somehow someone could be prosecuted. but megyn i have to talk about one thing we have not addressed tonight. let's assume this report is true and i have no reason to suggest that harvey's folks are not doing the right thing. a lot of the information that we know i'm not sure that we should know. a lot of this stuff like him getting a save shot which then gives us the inference that it was from opiates, how do we know that? is that from someone inside a hospital? whatever happened to hipaa laws? and if anyone is letting this go saying, well, it's that we need to know he's a high-profile guy whatever applies to him applies to all of us. so when we're in the hospital looking for those things to be kept private, it's moments like these where the investigation should be launched to determine, is it from someone inside the hospital? >> that's not waived just because the patient dies. we're not allowed -- they can't leak just because the patient died. >> right. i'm outraged that this came from
6:36 pm
someone at the hospital. quite frankly, who else would know that a save shot would -- >> one of prince's associates may have known. >> maybe. maybe. but he asked for a private room. either he has some really really non-loyal associates who are dishing out information or it's someone from the hospital. >> what do you make of that mark, the fact that he left against medical advice. they couldn't get a private room. he's prince. he left, he shouldn't have left, they say. that could be legally significant because the hospital will not be on the hook. >> that's correct. if they can show that they made it very clear to him -- and i'm sure it's in every chart because they know people are going to scrutinize it -- that he left against medical advice, which i'm sure that's something they put in reports especially with someone as high profile as this i think they're covered. >> on the subject of how high profile he was how does that affect this investigation? >> well, everybody wants to the average john doe on the
6:37 pm
street, he dies of an overdose they don't devote any resources. with this megyn kelly devoted an hour to it people want answer. they're going to turn to the police and say, somebody might have killed police, aren't you dying to know? don't you have an obligation to find out? i expect they'll devote high profile. >> mark good to see you. >> same here megyn. still ahead, detective mark fuhrman on the challenges that investigates may face given how high profile the case is. we'll talk about what kind of records they can get, cell phones, were there cameras on the compound? what are they looking at right now? plus joe levy of rolling stone magazine is here tonight on the legacy of a star whose records sold over 100 million. stay with us. ♪ let's go crazy ♪ ♪ let's get nuts ♪

we are continuing to watch the crowds outside the minnesota compound where prince was found dead this morning. the sheriff's office in carver county is now investigating the circumstances of the sinker's death. earlier tonight dr. michael baden told us the toxicology reports can be done in a few days. whether they release it right away away depends on police. joining us by phone, mark fuhrman a fox news contributor and former lapd detective. mark, thank you for being with us tonight. your thoughts on where you start as a detective to figure out what really happened here. >> well, megyn, it's one case the same as the next. but when you have money and control of multiple people it becomes more difficult. but everything is pretty much the same. when the police got there they

realized that the victim had expired. the coroner is called, medical examiner. now it's become an unexplained death because there's probably no ongoing illness and an attending physician that is willing to say, this person had leukemia or this person had cancer, and i'll sign the death certificate. so it becomes a criminal matter an unexplained death. at that point, and now they identify that it is prince that it is somebody that could possibly have had other than a natural death, you have a criminal investigation that has to start with seizing everything at that residence that could possibly lend to any evidence as to the cause of death. you need a search warrant. you're trying to collect any legal and illegal drugs, any vehicle of getting that drug into the body like an i.v. a

syringe anything like that ofis, and start interviewing the people at that location at the mansion, to try to establish and freeze certain statements before people talk with each other. >> how about cell phones his and those of the people who were in the house, looking for text messages, looking for cameras on the compound, and even mark pharmacy patterns at this walgreens? can the cops get that? >> well they can get all of this, but most of that information is not time sensitive. human interactions and getting their stories straight is time sensitive. getting rid of drugs at the mansion or syringes or i.v. bags is time sensitive. so i'm a little disturbed by the length of time from the time that there was probably an emergency somebody that is probably rarely alone, to the time that they pronounce death. so you've got a long period of
6:45 pm
time. it reminds me of the michael jackson death. there was a long gap there and of course we have illegally provided propofol in that case by a doctor for a sleep aid that led to his death. so you know the same situation. what you bring up can all lend to trying to paint a picture of what is really going on with this individual? does this individual have a pharmaceutical opiate problem that stemmed from a surgery or an injury that got out of control? or is this an illegal street type drug? >> if anything. the reps are standing by flu. the cops are going to be able to get to the bottom of this, though. because if there was a drug problem, there will be evidence of it. mark mark, thank you for being with us tonight. >> you bet. >> since the news about prince dying this morning, there's been a remarkable outpouring to the influence of -- gosh he is an icon. what did you think when you heard he was gone?
