The Carver County Sheriff’s Department, which is leading the investigation into Prince’s death, will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. CT on Friday afternoon. It will be broadcast live in the stream above. The Sheriff’s Department is working with the assistance of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department and The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.
Carver County Sheriff Bud Olsen will make a brief statement summarizing the public information that has been given so far. The sheriff’s press conference likely won’t reveal any results from today’s autopsy or the cause of Prince’s death. Dr. A. Quinn Stobl, the Chief Medical Examiner of the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office, said in a statement that information will not be released until the exam is complete and all results are obtained. It will take several days to gather the results and likely weeks for the toxicology scan to come in.
On television, CNN and MSNBC will broadcast the Carver County Sheriff’s Department press conference live. The Fox 10 stream at the top of this post will also be covering it.
