Prince’s sudden death shocked the world on Apr. 21, but we don’t know how or why he passed aged just 57. In fact, we know very little of the scene inside his Minnesota compound where his body was discovered. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office will be filling us in on the details in a press conference on Apr. 22 at 4 p.m. EST, which you can watch a live stream of here.
The world was left dumb-founded and stunned when it was announced that legendary performer Prince bid a sad farewell to this planet on Apr. 21. His body was discovered unconscious at his Paisley Park mansion in Minnesota, and we’ve been left scratching our heads about what happened to the Purple Rain axeman. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office will be filling in some of the gaps at a press conference on Apr. 22, which you can watch by clicking on the link below.
Prince’s body is currently with the Midwest Medical Examiner’s board where a autopsy is being performed on Apr. 22 to determine his cause of death. However, we won’t know for sure until the toxicology results come in, which could take 4-6 weeks, how the musical genius died.
A recent report suggested that Prince may have overdosed on the high-addictive painkiller Percocet — just days before his death. The singer allegedly ingested far too many pills on his flight home on Apr. 15, which led his emergency landing in Illinois, TMZ claims.
The report continues that Prince was allegedly taking Percocet after having hip surgery in 2010. The pain killer was said to have left him unconscious on his flight when his plane made an emergency landing and EMTs had to be on hand to give him a “save shot” to bring him back to life. He was hospitalized, but released just three hours later.
The outpouring of love for Prince since his sad death has been incredible, with monuments around the world donning purple lights in honor of his movie and song “Purple Rain.” A number of celebs, fans and ex-girlfriends also shared their sadness on social media.
There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered, and with drugs being a possible factor an investigation could rumble on just like Michael Jackson‘s sudden passing for years. Let’s see what the Carver County Sheriff’s Office can tell us.
