Confusion in 911 Call From Prince's Minnesota Compound

The call came from "Prince's house," the distraught 911 caller says

A transcript of the 911 call from Prince's suburban Minneapolis compound shows confusion as an unidentified caller struggles to give the dispatcher the proper address.

The caller said he was at "Prince's house" but first placed it in Minneapolis. Another person at the compound eventually gave the correct address in the suburb of Chanhassen.

The caller first says he has "someone who is unconscious" before saying "the person is dead here."

As the dispatcher identifies the address as Paisley Park and begins to ask a question, the caller interrupts to say, "Yes, it's Prince." Read the entire document below.

Authorities are investigating the death Thursday of the 57-year-old musician. Deputies who were summoned to a medical emergency found him in an elevator, unresponsive, and CPR failed, authorities said.

The Midwest Medical Examiners Office in Ramsey, Minnesota, tweeted that it has received Prince's body. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

Medical examiners have received Prince's body and plan to perform an autopsy.

Prince's death at age 57 has sparked an outpouring of grief from fans, with hundreds gathering outside his studio and in downtown Minneapolis and many more posting remembrances on social networks.
