Minnesota Music legend Prince has died aged 57 at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota, just days after his plane made an emergency landing in Illinois where he was briefly hospitalized for severe flu.
Iconic Minnesota musician Prince has died, a law enforcement source has confirmed to KSTP.
The 57-year-old musician was found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen.
The source says Prince was brought to a Twin Cities hospital Wednesday and was seen by a doctor. He was then brought back to Paisley Park in Chanhassen, where he was found dead Thursday.
Emergency responders were called at 9:43 a.m. to Paisley Park, located at 7847 Audobon Road in Chanhassen. Carver County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud says what began as a medical call is now a death investigation.
Here is the brief audio from fire and rescue as they were called to the scene.
RIP, Prince. You are one of the great musicians of our time – a true legend. You will be missed. Thank you for giving us one of the best albums of all time, and one of the favorites from my teenage years, Purple Rain.
