It must’ve been an extremely chaotic scene.
As we reported, paramedics were dispatched to Prince‘s residence around 9:43 a.m. where they eventually found the singer dead in his elevator. The conversation between the EMT and the 911 operator was leaked to the press.
On Thursday afternoon, the call between the 911 operator and the person who discovered the musician’s dead body has also been released.
According to sources, the unidentified man did NOT know the address of Paisley Park and had to ask somebody else inside the residence for that information.
He told the dispatcher:
“Um, we’re at Prince’s house├óΓé¼┬ª So, yeah, um, the person is dead here.”
The mystery caller added that “people are just distraught” and confirmed that the deceased subject was the 57-year-old legend.
When asked “Are you with the person who’s,” he replied, “Yes, it’s Prince.”
After medical officials arrived and could not revive him, they told dispatch, “You can cancel anybody going to Audubon, confirmed DOA.”
Our thoughts and prayers go to Prince’s friends and family during this difficult time.
