I was informed by a family member of Prince, that Prince's brother and former employee, Duane Nelson, was found dead in his apartment today. I don't know the details but thay wanted to inform the org about this tragic loss. People please keep the Nelson family in your prayers, I know I will and God Bless...

This is so sad. Was he married? Did he have any children? Was he employed anywhere in the last 2 years? I ask these questions because I hope he didn't die lonely, poor and broken hearted.
