Prince suffered no trauma

Prince suffered no "trauma" before his death.

An autopsy on the 'U Got That Look' hitmaker - who was pronounced dead at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota on Thursday (21.04.16) - has confirmed that he was not subject to any trauma or violence in the time leading up to his death but the Examiners Office warned it may be weeks before the cause of death is known.

Speaking at a press conference, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson confirmed there was "no reason to believe" Prince had committed suicide.

Whilst a spokesperson for the Examiners Office added in a statement: "As part of the complete exam, relevant information regarding [Prince's] medical and family history will be gathered. Anything which could be relevant to the investigation will be taken into consideration.

"Midwest Medical Examiners Office will not release information until the exam is complete and all results are obtained. Gathering results will take several days and the results of a full toxicology scan could likely take weeks."

However, they did confirm Prince's body would be released to the family presently.

The 'Purple Rain' hitmaker's death was confirmed by his publicist on Thursday (21.04.16).

In a statement, they said: "It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57. There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time."
