Drugs probed in Kris Kross rapper's death

[Updated at 1:42 p.m. ET Thursday] Atlanta-area authorities are investigating Wednesday's death of Chris Kelly, half of the 1990s rap duo Kris Kross, as a possible drug overdose, Fulton County Police Cpl. Kay Lester said Thursday morning.

Kelly, 34, died Wednesday at an Atlanta hospital after he was found unresponsive at his home, police said.

After paramedics took him to the hospital, a woman who identified herself as Kelly's friend told an investigator that Kelly had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine Tuesday night, and that she had brought Kelly home "to recover from his drug use," according to a police report

    I attended Oxford University. It had such a splended and superb Liberal Arts Department. I also took a dancing class and did the instructor. She was awesome. Needless to say she gave me a perfect score of a 100 or an A+. However, I received a C in her dance class.
