Whoa?! New Book - https://thedeathofprincerogersnelson.com/

This just popped up on my twitter feed! https://thedeathofprincer...elson.com/

WARNING - contents on the site may well be upsetting to many.

Not too sure how to feel about this, looks like ALL the texts, photos, police interviews etc brought together. You can preview the book here:

https://thedeathofprincerogersnelson.com/preview-the-book-now

Any ideas who is behind this?

I wonder who this Jay Corn is?

The previews seems to have some stuff added for dramatic effect.

Right now I'm not going in depth on this topic, unless there are assurances that the thread will not be shut down. I'm tired of spending hours of research to discuss it here on the forum and the thread is shut down on a whim.

There are links on the site for such images. So be cautious.

Frederick96, if I'd posted a few minutes earlier I could have saved you from that.



I was planning to add a word of warning so may as well include it now:



There are photos from the investigation in a link on that site which some people will definitely not want to see, so be careful what you click on (the main page linked to on the OP's post is safe though).



Having read the first bit of the preview it reads like a work of fiction relying very heavily on the interview and dispatch transcripts interwoven with badly written conjecture based on easily obtainable background information. I could be wrong, maybe the author did some actual research, but I have my doubts.

Maybe some people would be interested in reading about Prince's death as a work of fiction, but personally I have no interest in it and - I stress that this is purely my own opinion - this book (if the preview is anything to go by, and it should be since that's what previews are for) will be a nauseatingly badly written load of absolutely pointless guff, and the worst example thus far of jumping on the Prince death exploitation money making bandwagon.

I thought it would only be a matter of time before something like this surfaced. I really had hoped it wouldn't but I am not in the least surprised that it has.

Suffice to say I won't be buying this one.

Lemmy, Bowie, Prince, Leonard. RIP.

That son of a bitch almost had me looked at Prince's body.
I swear to God, he can be thankful for having put the titles above the pics: I would have DDoS his ass in a Minneapolis minute.
It's pretty obvious we have a vulture trying to make some bucks out of Minnesota absurd laws (the public dropbox zip files).
Pardon my french, but fuck him.

I didn't go any further than opening it and then closing it.

I'm wondering if this guy got actual interviews with these people, or is it just interviews from the files? Wonder if he has hung out on the Org and put out all of our info that we researched? sad

Are you talking about people from planet earth?
Last time I checked, they were heading for a massive global disaster.
But couldn't wait for the next Star Wars spin-off.

bloody horrible but alas it's the 'new normal....books, TV docs, 'celeb autopsy' TV, etc are there to serve people's desperate instant need for information.

Have to say though the twitter feed is shedding new light ie Sheila E & P falling out in 2011 about his use of meds...i never knew that.

Honestly though I'll ask the Q again....is it any different to the threads on here where all docs were linked to & then debated / speculated upon endlessley? I guess the main difference is that 1] the authors are making $ off it & 2] there may be additional info via interviews...although I think their definition of interviews is probably the police tapes.

All in all bloody awful but the speculation will never end.
