"Contradictions and seeming inconsistencies are part and parcel of (Prince's) whole story — nothing is simple or self-evident," says Alex Hahn, a Boston lawyer, Prince fan and co-author of The Rise of Prince:1958-1988. "With someone like Elvis Presley or Kurt Cobain or Amy Winehouse, there is an unambiguous picture of physical or psychological deterioration as part of substance abuse. Prince died of an overdose but he doesn't have these other (signs) in common with them."

"There's a lot of mystery, a lot of information behind the curtain," says Frank Wheaton, a lawyer who, up until last month, represented one of Prince's siblings and presumed heirs, one of an army of lawyers involved in the case.

The curtain is likely to remain closed for the time being.
