Eyedea's death: The police report
The Twin Cities lost one of its most prolific rappers last weekend.
Micheal Larsen, aka Eyedea, was nationally respected in the indie hip-hop scene since before he was old enough to buy a beer. His mother found him dead in his St. Paul apartment Saturday, less than a month before his 29th birthday.
The details surrounding Larsen's death are still largely unknown. The report filed by St. Paul police offers little explanation:
Officers responded to a 911 call to an apartment on Laurel Avenue in St. Paul at 11:40 p.m. Saturday. There, they found Micheal David Larsen dead.
"There's no signs of trauma, nothing suspicious," says St. Paul police spokesman Andy Skoogman. "We don't think foul play was involved."
Police are waiting to see toxicology results from the medical examiner, says Skoogman, which could take weeks.
