New details have emerged on iconic singer Prince’s death after the autopsy on his body was completed on Friday.
According to the authorities there were “no obvious signs of trauma” and “no reason to believe at this point that this was a suicide,” authorities said.
Additional detail revealed that he was alone at home at the time of the passing, there were “no obvious signs of trauma” and “no reason to believe at this point that this was a suicide,” Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said. There was no cell phone in “close proximity” to Prince when his body was found.
Results from the examination will likely not be released for several weeks, Martha Weaver, spokeswoman for the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office had told The Hollywood Reporter.
“Nothing will be released until everything is complete. Nothing can be reported with a pending status,” she said.
Speculation on the cause of Prince’s death is just that, speculation, Weaver said. Nothing will be known until the autopsy is complete and toxicology results come back to the office, she adds.
Information regarding Prince’s medical and social history was gathered as part of the exam.
Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator inside his Paisley Park residence Thursday morning. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.
His body will be released to his family.
