His body was released to his family yesterday afternoon and he was cremated. His remains will be stored in a private location, according to his publicist.

I don't know why I was expecting more, but I was. But he went out of this world just like he existed in life - notoriously private. His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, released the following statement today:

A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye. Prince’s remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private.  We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time.  The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy.  An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration.

His sister, Tyka Nelson, came out to greet the fans and to thank them. *insert tears here*
