Transcript from a 911 call placed at Prince's Minnesota estate, Paisley Park, is providing a little more clarity into the discovery of the singer's body in an elevator Thursday morning.
According to TMZ, a panicked man told the dispatcher that "people are just distraught" after finding the Grammy winner unconscious.
"Um, we're at Prince's house. So, yeah, um, the person is dead here," the man can be heard saying. When asked for the address, the unidentified caller summoned someone else in the room for the information.
"Are you with the person who's... " the dispatcher began before the man interrupted, "Yes, it's Prince."

When Prince's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing last Friday, his reps claimed he was battling the flu. But multiple sources tell the site that the 57-year-old received a "save shot" at an Illinois hospital, which is typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.
Although the music legend was advised to stay at the hospital for a full 24 hours, he allegedly bailed after the facility couldn't provide him with a private room.
An autopsy is expected to be performed today.
