Carver County Attorney objects to releasing data about Prince's death

- A group representing Prince’s estate is hoping to learn more about the star's death.

The Minneapolis law firm of Schwebel, Goetz and Sieben filed a motion that asked the court to release law enforcement data and medical examiner data elated to Prince's death. Prince died in 2016 in his Paisley Park home after an accidental overdose. 

In a statement on Friday, the Carver County Attorney’s Office said it will object to releasing law enforcement and medical examiner data because the investigation is active.

"This confidential law enforcement data remains confidential until the Carver County Attorney makes the decision to charge or decline any criminal charge," Carver County Attorney Mark Metz wrote in a statement.

When the case is closed, the medical examiner data will be released to the next of kin.
