5:00 am
new video emerges of prince's final concert. the singer saying he was sorry for previous health care. >> i apologize i have to. we're live outside paisley park. massive manhunt, authorities looking for the shooters in ohio. who gunned down the same families in a home execution style. >> there is the person or
5:01 am
persons out that are armed, are very dangerous. >> why officials are telling other members of that family to watch out this morning. countdown to victory, donald trump and hillary clinton campaigning hard with primaries in five states just three days away. both hoping to pull off clean swee sweeps. is it the beginning of the end for the rivals >> the prince and his pjs. britain's future king stealing the spotlight once again, this time staying up past his bead time to meet the president. just another sign that prince george can't help being royally adorable, today, saturday, april 23rd2016. i've from studio 1a in rockefelle welcome to "today" on this saturday morning. this saturday morning. >> good morning to you guys.
5:02 am
>> good to see you. >> you guys have kids. is it a bad idea to dress kids in all white? >> unless you're the prince, i suppose. >> it is so adorable. it's funny you mentioned that. you get those gifts when your kids are babies and get the robes kids never wear. this little guy, i think of the song from "lion king," "i just can't wait to be king". >> he steals the show wherever he goes. we'll get to more on prince george in a bit. the investigation into prince's untimely death. an autopsy was performed friday, but this morning investigators are not saying a whole lot about what was found. we have the latest from outside prince's recording studio where his body was discovered. ron, good morning. >> hey, craig, good morning you. anyone expecting to get some dlu on what led to this tragedy is disappointed on the word pending being used with respect to yesterday's autopsy. all that means is more waiting.
5:03 am
the morning funeral plans for prince remain undisclosed. his body taking custody of his body transported by this van. but the lead investigator appeared to one area of speculation to rest. >> there were no obvious signs of trauma on the body at all. we have no reason to believe it's a suicide. >> that investigation is expected to proceed for several more weeks, authorities say, before a final report on what happened is released. in the meantime, rumors fill the void, after tmz posted an unverified report that the singer overdosed on a private jet last week, publishing a man outside a drugstore purportedly one of multiple visits he made before the days he died. ♪ >> reporter: at his final public performance april 14th in atlanta, prince apologized for postponing those two shows. >> once again, i have to apoll vise for the cancellation.
5:04 am
i was a little bit under the weather. >> reporter: sheila e., a one time band mate, fiance of the late entertainer saying there's joy and pain in her heart. >> i'm grateful to have been a part of his life and him a part of mine. >> reporter: she added, nothing in recent memory suggested to her trouble may be on the horizon, a point l.a. reed echoed friday on "today". >> the prince i know was like super healthy, vegen, wasn't an abuser of drugs, wasn't an abuser of alcohol. >> reporter: for now, however he died seems inconsequential to his legend of fans. a steady seem to flow outside his paisley park estate. saddened but grateful for the life he lived. now, starting today through next thursday, amc theaters is releasing "purple rain" on more than 80 screens across the country as a chance to relive prince all again. guys, back to you. >> ron, i was there with you yesterday. looks as if that makeshift
5:05 am
memorial behind you continues to grow outside paisley park. >> very beautiful. >> thank you. we have a forensic pathology who looked into some of the nation's highest cases from president kennedy's assassination to oj simpson. good morning. thank you for talking with us. >> good morning. >> let's get right to it. based on all the evidence we know this morning, what do you think happened? what do you think killed prince? >> as a frensologyist for 55 years and long-term coroner, i would give overwhelming odds that tragically this is a drug death. when you rule out foul play, when there is no history of any kind of significant disease, heart and lung, when you rule out any kind of intervention, foul play, anything of an environmental nature, you come down to an autopsy which is essentially negative and that probably means drugs.
5:06 am
there is a rumor, call it what you will, that he was taking percocet. percocet contains oxycodone, combination. oxycodone is one of the most frequently involved drugs in this drug abuse epidemic that is sweeping the country. oxycodone is a powerful semisynthetic narcotic, depresses the brain and then of course leads to depression of the heart and lungs. it is just as potent as morphine when taken subcutaneously almost as potent when taken orally. and acidametafin, an anti-also stronger than aspirin, but that adds to it. not very much, but that is part of the picture. so, i think that this almost certainly is going to prove to be a drug death. >> a week ago dr. wect, we know
5:07 am
there was this plane coming from atlanta to minneapolis. nbc news has confirmed at about 300 miles from his destination the plane begins to descend and descended at a rate that would be indicative there was some sort of medical emergency on board. we know there was someone who was not responsive on board. his reps say he was treated and released for flu-like symptoms. does that add to up you? what does that tell you? >> that's part of the clinical, medical history. part of the overall scenario. obviously if this was such a precipitous medical problem that required that kind of emergency landing, et cetera, it could not have been a cardiac condition, right, or a cerebral problem and he was discharged, i understand, they couldn't get a private room and so they did not want to stay. so the fact that you had that kind of emergency situation, the treatment evidently a response because i think then he went on to give another concert or whatever.
5:08 am
so, again, that fits into the drug picture. i cannot think of any medical pathological condition that would give you that kind of a scenario with those kinds of incredible ups and downs in such a short period of time, other than drugs. he had an acute drug episode. they probably treated him with narcan. an opioid. he got better, as you always do and took the drugs again. most, most regrettably. >> bottom line, it was all so sudden we're all trying to process it. >> we'll get a lot more answers when the toxicology report comes out in a couple weeks. >> thank you. >> thank you. to ohio now where a massive man hunt is under way for the shooter or shooters responsible for the horrific killing of eight people from the same family. the only three spared, schirn. police now say they think that the family was targeted. nbc's gabe gutierrez has the new developments this morning. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning. overnight investigators here
5:09 am
worked four crime scenes and they worked here throughout the night. they now believe one family was clearly targeted and they've interviewed more than 30 people so far, but no arrests. this morning the search for a killer or killers is intensifying across rural pike county, ohio. >> we do not know whether we're talking about one individual or two or three or more. we simply do not know that at this point. >> sheriff's deputies got the first 911 call just before 8:00 a.m. friday morning. they soon found 7 adults and 1 16-year-old boy shot dead in four homes. survivors, three children ranging in age from four days old to three years. >> it's heart breaking. i mean, the one mom apparently was killed in her bed with the 4 day old right there. >> reporter: authorities say none of the dead committed suicide, leading the sheriff to warn residents that at least one
5:10 am
killer is on the loose. >> that there is a person or persons out that are armed, are very dangerous. >> reporter: so far no suspects and no motive, but investigators say it appears the family was targeted. >> we're praying for the family. we're trying to lift up the family. we're do anything that we can to reach out, comfort them. >> reporter: ohio governor and presidential candidate john kasich is calling the killings tragic beyond comprehension. >> well, there's eight people dead, execution style. what can you say? >> reporter: and they may never have seen it coming. some of the victims were in bed, investigators say, suggesting they were shot in their head while they were sleeping. >> never lost so many people to a murder or murderers in this county. never eight people at one time. >> reporter: while authorities say the killer or killers can be armed and dangerous, they do not believe there is a larger threat to this community. instead, they are offering protection to members of the
5:11 am
family who, again, they believe to be the intended targets. craig? >> just awful story. gabe gutierrez for us. thank you. two politics now where both donald trump and hillary clinton are hoping to land knockout blows on their opponents on tuesday. five states will vote and both front-runners are hoping for clean sweeps. we're following both sides this morning. let's begin with hali jackson covering the republicans. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and this morning already a handful of donald trump fans are lining up to see him speak here in bridgeport, trump ahead of tuesday's northeastern primaries looking for a knockout. now calling on his rivals to drop out. in front of a fired up crowd, donald trump caught up and tripped up. >> we want south carolina -- and we won new hampshire and connecticut -- >> reporter: not connecticut, not yet at least. that state and the four others on tuesday look like trump
5:12 am
territory. if he wins the majority of delegates there, his math gets easier. he'll need to win just over half of the remaining delegates in coming contests to lock up the nomination. >> there's no path to victory for cruz so he should get out. they should both get out. they should. >> reporter: trump, trying to look more presidential plans to focus on foreign policy at a speech next week. and while he tells fortune magazine he's not going to rebrand, his top adviser acknowledges to party insiders he can take on a different persona privately than he does publicly. >> they said this is all a show. he is telling us he is lying to us. >> reporter: ted cruz taking aim in pennsylvania where he is hoping to pick off delegates from trump, john kasich focussing more on rhode island and connecticut. both getting backup from the stop trump movement. on defense now after sitting out new york. >> as we move west, we move into areas which are stronger for the
5:13 am
stop trump movement. that does not mean we'll ignore the northeastern. >> reporter: they plan to spend more in california and indiana where a new poll shows cruz within striking of trump. they expect to pick up at least 40 delegates in indiana. the next big battleground state for the gop. but the republican national committee through all of this, staying on the sidelines now. the head of the party, reince priebus telling members at a meeting in florida, politics is a team sport, adding the gop needs to rally around the eventual nominee. >> thank you. turn to the democrats now, where bernie sanders long shot bids to become his party's nominee may become more difficult after this tuesday's primaries. kelly o'donnell is following the democrats. kelly, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, craig. in this final turn toward tuesday's five-state primary, there is a lot of ground to cover. hillary clinton makes stops in connecticut and here at central
5:14 am
falls high school in rhode island today. while bernie sanders holds rallies in maryland and delaware. sanders, who is behind in delegates, says the race is not over yet, while clinton is showing signs she's looking toward november. ♪ >> reporter: in scranton, hillary clinton added an up beat prince classic to her campaign play list. and she played up some pennsylvania nostalgia. >> so this place has a lot of not just memories but special meaning to me. >> reporter: polls show clinton goes into tuesday with a double-digit lead in pennsylvania. >> i will work my heart out for the people here in northeastern pennsylvania. >> reporter: while she took her usual jabs at bernie sanders, clinton hit billionaire gop front-runner donald trump as out of touch. >> we out to get out of those towers and actually come down and talk to people and listen to them. >> reporter: tuesday has some built-in advantages for clinton. these five states hold
5:15 am
primaries, not caucuses, where sanders has often won. four of the five allow only democrats to participate. sanders draws big support from independents. >> let's make sure that pennsylvania has the largest voter turnout in the history of the democratic primary. >> reporter: also in pennsylvania, joe biden's birthplace, sanders hit clinton by reading from the vice president's interview with the new york times. >> he'll take mr. sanders's aspirational approach over mrs. clinton's caution any day. >> reporter: pressed by andrea mitchell, sanders qualified his willingness to campaign for clinton if she wins the nomination. >> got to find out what her platform is, what the views are that she is going to bringing forth, to what degree she will adopt many of the ideas that are extremely popular and i think very sensible. >> reporter: and as the voting comes to states where joe biden has roots, he makes clear he is
5:16 am
staying neutral but was commenting on sanders's style. sanders acknowledges it could be a tough road to catch clinton in the delegate race, but he vows to fight on. craig? >> kelly o'donnell for us this morning. thank you. president obama held a town hall in great britain this morning, saying he is proud of his health department insuranceover haul and turning the u.s. economy around. despite his achievements, he doesn't think he'll have a full understanding of his legacy for another decade. a very controversial move, virginia governor lifted voting rights on convicted felons who served their sentences. allow excons to vote in november if they finished their parole or probation. it's a political move. prosecutors in arizona are dropping criminal charges for now against a man they claimed was last year's phoenix highway shooter. lessly merit was released this week under electronic monitoring after being held on charges
5:17 am
including drive-by shooting and aggravating assaults. the attacks in august and september caused panic on the highways as 11 cars were hit. while merit claims he is innocent, prosecutors say the move is designed to allow more investigation that could lead them to file charges again. it was a night of amazing plays in major league baseball. check this out for the chicago white sox, line drive, bases loads sets up this wild triple play against the texas rangers. adam eaton made the throw to first for the tag. that's when the run-downs got crazy with throws to home, second, second baseman chasing the runner. to the flip, to the catcher then the third baseman who finally makes the tag for the third out. and for the yankees, a rare event, else bury pulled off a straight steal of home against the rays to tie the game at three runs a piece. as a catcher, there is nothing more embarrassing than having someone steal home plate.

6:05 am
instead, they're offering protection to that very large family who they believe were the intended targets. this morning here in ohio, the investigation and the manhunt are well under way. >> gabe gutierrez for us in ohio. thanks. another sad story out of hollywood this morning. michelle mcnamara died at the age of 46. she died in her sleep and that her passing came as a complete surprise to the family. the army is investigating a crash of some of their humvees but it's not the type of crash you might expect. check this out. this involves humvees raining from the sky in an air drop over germany. several of the vehicles actually crashed to the ground. video of the 173rd airborne brigade floating humvees have gone viral. more than 1.5 million views.
