Putting it out there. That's one of the stories I've seen. Cause of death not announced yet. I'm in Minnesota and Prince's death is a big deal here. Erica

I've heard multiple things. I heard Zika virus, flu shot and overdose. We'll probably never know the truth.

I would think an autopsy would rule out a lot of things and maybe tell if it was drugs or a virus.

Yeah, but I don't think they always tell the public the truth. I read that he never took drugs and if that's true, rules out an overdose.

That's my understanding too Sandi - that he took good care of his body and didn't do drugs. Heard this morning that he liked living in MN because it's so cold there bad people didn't come :)

Today I read that he died from overusing pain killers and they used Narcan on him hours before he died. Too many stories.

We don't have a cause of death yet for my sister, but I can think of about six different possible reasons. Speculating doesn't help.

The only thing I've heard is that there was no sign of self harm.

You're right, Sandi, no point speculating. I often wonder where Dad's primary cancer was, but he didn't want to know. Hope they find your sisters' cause soon.
