A transcript of the 911 call from Prince’s suburban Minneapolis home has been released by the Police. The call was made by a young man inside the home who didn’t seem to know the address of the home when the 911 dispatcher asked him for it. Fortunately, another person at the compound eventually gave the correct address to the dispatcher.
The caller first says he has “someone who is unconscious” and then says “the person is dead here” and later, “Yes, it’s Prince.”
