The Carver County Sheriff’s Office has released a transcript of the 911 call placed from Prince’s Paisley Park estate on Thursday.
At first, the unidentified male caller tells the dispatcher, “We have someone who is unconscious,” and, “We are at Prince’s house.”
Later, he reveals, “The person is dead here,” and, “Yes, it's Prince.”
As the dispatcher presses the caller for an address, he reveals that they are trying to find it, but everyone is “distraught.” Keep reading for the entire transcript:
