"One key figure investigators want to interview is Kirk Johnson, a longtime drummer for Prince and the estate manager at Paisley Park who was among those who discovered the musician's body. Johnson also was with Prince six days earlier when he fell ill on a flight home from a performance in Atlanta and had to be revived with two doses of an opioid antidote.

While authorities have the power to ask a grand jury to investigate and issue subpoenas for testimony, that step hasn't been taken, the official said.

Johnson declined to comment for this story. When pressed in a recent CBS interview to talk about Prince's final days, Johnson pointed to his head and said: "Kirk has a vault. Right here. It's never gonna be unlocked."

"During a search of Prince’s Paisley Park home, detectives located numerous narcotic controlled substances, some of which were in suitcase labeled “Peter Bravestrong” which is believed to be the alias that Prince used when he traveled.

Some of those narcotic medications weren’t in the right prescription bottles and were found inside over-the-counter vitamin bottles. A court document says a doctor prescribed oxycodone for Prince under the name of the musician’s friend to protect his privacy.

Additional prescriptions at Paisley were made out to Kirk Johnson, "
