    I’ve watched enough CSI series to know they know then and there.
    Granted a lot is at stake, but fact is they already know.
    Frankly, I don’t want to know. Especially if he just checked out, you know?
    The intent might not have been there, or he might have been secretly ill with something and knew himself, but still, it’s just something that knowing isn’t going to help with the sadness, shock, and so forth. What he has is a legacy to live long after him. He knows that too, or knew it. May he rest, finally, in peace. It was always his way or the highway, but I don’t think he had many enemies, not really. My heart goes out to inner circle, family.

    omg, csi is so far from reality. Some say he OD’d only days ago and left the hospital against Dr recommendations. I honestly believe they don’t know if its because of that incident days ago, or some other issue. And ya, some say he had a secret illness, although I dont believe that. I still cant believe hes gone.

    I TRULY BELIEVE THE CONSPIRACY OF FINANCIAL GREED HIDING IN THE BUSHES OF LITIGATION THAT OUR BLACK GENIUS WAS WORKING ON. PRINCE WAS NOT A STUPID OR UNWITTING FOOL. HE WAS THE VICTIM OF A CHEMICAL ATTACK OF SOME KIND. THERE WILL BE A PROBLEM THAT IS GOING TO TRY TO HUSH THE RESULTS FROM GOING PUBLIC. BIG MONEY HUNGRY CATS WILL RESULT TO ALL TYPES OF TACTICS TO PREVENT OR REVEAL THEIR IDENTITY AND OR FINANCIAL CONNECTIONS. MAYBE THIS IS WHY JANET JACKSON SURROUNDED HERSELF WITH LOYAL POWERFUL ARAB SOLDIERS. SO THAT SHE DOES NOT BE SWEPT INTO THE VACUUM OF SUDDEN DEATHS HAPPENING TO OUR MOST FAMOUS BLACK ENTERTAINERS IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS. WITH EACH DEATH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE BEING GENERATED INTO THE COFFERS OF THE INVESTORS SECRET FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS TIED TO THE ACCOUNTS OF THE COMPANIES OF THE RECENTLY TRAGICALLY EXECUTIONS OF THE MOST POPULAR ENTERTAINERS WHOSE MUSIC CATALOG SALES DECLINES CAUSES THEM TO REACT IN CRIMINAL MATTERS TO GENERATE SALES. IF THE INVESTMENTS OF INDEPENDENT MUSIC COMPANIES TIED UP IN LITIGATION MATTERS REGARDING ROYALTY PAYMENTS, BACK BONUS MANIPULATIONS, COVER UPS OF DISCOVERY OR REALIZATION OF THEFT AND OR SUSPECTS LEAD TO THE PREVENTION OF PRINCE RETURNING HOME TO HIS LOYAL PEOPLE THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED HIM, WAS DEFINITELY IN FULL EFFECT. I THINK THE AUTOPSY WILL NOT BE REVEALED ACCURATELY, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT WOULD HAVE PANDEMONIUM GOING ON ALL OVER THE WORLD. IT WOULD TEAR THE MUSIC INDUSTRY APART IF THE TRUTH GOT OUT.
