What We Know About Prince’s Death After the Autopsy Is Complete
The full results have not yet been revealed, but insiders are offering insight.
Prince’s autopsy was completed on Friday, Apr. 21, the day after his death, and Carver County Sheriff Olson shared preliminary details from the report with TMZ. His body had no signs of trauma when he was found in the elevator of his home, and there was nothing on his body that indicated any sign of suicide. The results will not be clear for at least a few weeks until the toxicology report is complete. The examiner intends to gather more information on his family, medical, and social history before revealing any information to the public.
It was revealed that Prince overdosed on the painkiller Percocet only days prior to his death when his plane made an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois. He allegedly began taking highly-addictive painkillers for a hip problem, for which he had corrective surgery in 2010.
