Inquest into the Death of The Artist Formerly known as Prince

One of the world’s most innovative, influential and flamboyant musicians of our time, Prince Rogers Nelson died suddenly in April 2016 at his home in Minnesota. He was 57.

A press release from the Midwest Medical Examiner’s office stated that he died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl.

What really happened to Prince? How did he die? Where was he found? Who found him? When? Were the rumours about a hip replacement and his religious beliefs true? How long had he been addicted to opioids? How much did he take?

Find out the answers to these questions and more, on a screen near you when State Coroner, Judge John Cain, Director of the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine, Professor Noel Woodford and Chief Toxicologist Dr Dimitri Gerostamoulos lead a cast of legal and forensic experts and analyse what caused the death of one of our greatest music legends.

This event will be hosted by the inimitable Brian Nankervis. What he doesn’t know about Prince – apart from his cause of death – isn’t worth knowing!
