Default "You don't have to show us no stinking autopsy!"

As per usual, TMZ isn't wasting time on trivialities like the body getting cold...
4/16: ...Prince's private plane made an unscheduled landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline (Illinois USA) just after 1 AM. The singer was immediately transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

A source close to the 57-year-old singer tells us he's been released and is doing okay. The nature of the medical emergency is unclear...A rep for Prince tells TMZ the singer has been fighting the flu for several weeks...
4/21: ...Multiple sources in Moline tell us...doctors gave him a "save shot," typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn't possible, Prince and co. decided to bail...(He) was released 3 hours (later)...
4/21: Prince hit up a local pharmacy hours before he died -- the 4th time he visited this week...Our sources tell us...people at the store were concerned because he looked much more frail and nervous than usual.

TMZ obtained this photo of Prince leaving a Walgreens near his home in Minnesota Wednesday night...

On...the day after he was released from the hospital, Prince took the stage at a dance party near his home and curiously said, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."
4/22: Prince had OD'd on Percocet days before his death...Percocet is a painkiller which contains a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone, an opioid. It is highly addictive.

Sources in Moline...tell TMZ (that) Prince's entourage told responders he had taken the painkiller after his Atlanta concert...Prince was taking painkillers for a hip problem...(H)e had corrective surgery for his hips around 2010.
Autopsies can take a few days, toxicology findings a few weeks. Seems like a waste of time and taxpayer money, though, doesn't it?

Remember how we used to talk about busting out? We'd break their hearts together...forever...

You and me and our old friends / hoping it would never end / holding on to never say goodbye...
