Prince death "not suicide" say officials

Officials carried out a post-mortem examination on the body of pop singer Prince on Friday. They said there were no signs he had taken his own life.

“We have no reason to believe at this point that this was a suicide” Carver County sheriff, Jim Olson told reporters, “there were no obvious signs of trauma on the body at all.”

The full results from the autopsy could take several weeks.

The 57-year-old died suddenly at his home in Minnesota on Thursday. Outside Paisley Park, fans continued to lay tributes.

In New York, a makeshift memorial was set up outside the Apollo Theater where Prince had played several times during his career.

“I have years and years ahead of me to enjoy his music forever and ever “ said one fan, “today is more like a celebration. Yesterday we mourned, today we celebrate”.

“Will be listening to his music 100 years from now. And I just wanted to be part of the celebration of his life,” said another.
