Authorities say there were no signs of trauma on Prince's body when he was found unresponsive at his home, and that suicide isn't suspected in the musician's death.

Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson released the information during a news conference Friday.

The sheriff says the investigation is ongoing into the death of the 57-year-old musician, who was found dead Thursday morning at his home in suburban Minneapolis.

An autopsy was completed earlier Friday, though preliminary findings weren't immediately released

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office was handling the autopsy, but the agency doesn't plan to release any preliminary information, agency spokeswoman Martha Weaver said Friday. She said it could take several days or even weeks for tests to be completed and the office will wait to release findings until all the information is in.
