Publicist: Prince's Remains Have Been Cremated

Prince's remains have been cremated and a small group of family and friends have attended a private ceremony in his memory.

The singer's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement that those close to the 57-year-old had gathered "in a private, beautiful ceremony" on Saturday.

The statement said that a "musical celebration" would be held in future but the star's "final storage" was private.

"We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time," it added.

Prince was a Jehovah's Witness, meaning that a funeral needed to take place within a week of his death.

The statement did not say where the service had been held but Prince's sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Phillips were both seen going into Prince's Minneapolis estate Paisley Park.

The singer's friends including percussionist Sheila E and bass player Larry Graham were also seen there.

Prince - real name Prince Rogers Nelson - was found dead in a lift at Paisley Park on Thursday. An autopsy was done on Friday but officials have not released the cause of his death, saying results could take days or weeks.

Giving an update on the latest in the police investigation into the singer-songwriter's death, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said there were no signs of trauma on Prince's body when he was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate.

He said: "There were no obvious signs of trauma on the body at all. We have no reason to believe at this point that this was a suicide."

Celebrity website TMZ cited anonymous sources saying that Prince was treated for an overdose of the powerful painkiller Percocet while travelling home from concerts in Atlanta last week.
