Prince's remains cremated, private service held 

Prince's remains have been cremated and a private memorial has been held, his publicist said in a statement. It's possible that a future public event - billed as a "musical celebration" - will be held as well. 


The "final storage" of Prince's remains will remain private, according to the statement released to outlets including the Associated Press.

Prince, 57, died one week after two sold-out shows at the Fox Theater in Atlanta.

The cause of death remains uncertain. Investigators found no signs of trauma and do not suspect suicide, and did not comment on tabloid reports speculating about possible drug use.
