Police: Don't Believe Prince's Death Was Suicide; Autopsy Results May Take Weeks
An investigation into the death of singer Prince has found no obvious signs of trauma on his body when he was found, the local sheriff said at a press conference in Minnesota today.
Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said "we have no reason to believe this was a suicide."
Olson said the 57-year-old musician was last seen around 8 p.m. Wednesday, about 12 hours before he was found unresponsive in an elevator at his studio/home in suburban Minneapolis.
Paramedics tried to perform CPR but were unable to revive the "Purple Rain" superstar. He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m.
An autopsy was completed today to determine the cause of his death, though officials say it could be weeks before results are released.
Authorities declined to say what may have been taken from Prince's home after his death, or to discuss a report that the musician suffered a drug overdose less than a week before he died.
