Prince Found Dead In His Paisley Park Estate
Prince made an appearance at Paisley Park last Saturday, just one day after he was hospitalized with flu symptoms. On April 15, TMZ broke the story that Prince was rushed to the hospital after his plane made an emergency landing in Atlanta. Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud confirmed a response to a medical call at Paisley Park at 9:43 a.m. Thursday.
Prince is dead at 57, found Thursday morning at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Paisley Park is the compound where Prince lives, records music and hosts parties and concerts, including one party just a few days ago. Prince fans quickly gathered at Paisley Park and at the iconic First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis to share memories of the pop star.
"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," publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement. "There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time."
