A family source revealed that family members were flying in from across the country to help each other mourn and to plan the "Purple Rain" singer's services.
Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson in 1958, was the son of singer John Nelson, who died in 2001, and mom Mattie Shaw.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Chanhassen, Minnesota authorities arrived to Prince's Paisley Park estate on Thursday morning to investigate the death of a "middle-aged" man. Sources told RadarOnline.com that the identity of the deceased was in fact Prince.
The news followed a disturbing incident on April 15, when the "Purple Rain" singer's plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois.
