Here's Why Police Were Called To Prince's Compound 46 Times in 5 Years
Police received an astonishing 46 calls from Prince’s Paisley Park compound in Minnesota over the past five years.
The long list includes calls about suspicious activity, disturbing the peace, property damage and the alarm going off – apparently due to trespassers.
Three of the calls were for unspecified medical emergencies. The last call prior to his death that was classified as medical was made on October 23, 2013.
Only four of the calls resulted in actual incident reports. Among them was the April 21 call made by an employee who said “an unresponsive adult male” had been found in the elevator. Authorities arrived to find Prince’s body.
"They tried to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 1007 hours," the report read.
Investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose, and whether he used drugs in the weeks before he was found dead inside his home, age 57.
As IE spoke to Leolah Brown this week, she responded to comparisons between Prince’s death and that of her sister-in-law, Whitney Houston.
“I'm gonna say one thing,” she said. “We gotta be careful who we surround ourselves with. Be careful who you allow in your circle. Be careful who you allow in your life.”
