AZUZ: OK, our next story. There was a global outpouring of sympathy earlier this week, when the musician Prince was found dead. Investigators don't know for sure yet why he died. They did find he had prescription opioid medication in his possession and in his home.Prince's music, his record label, his estate, they're estimated to be worth around $300 million, and his sister filed legal documents that said he didn't have a will.That brings in a lot of questions. Prince was divorced. He had no surviving children. His parents have died. If he never put it in writing where he wanted the money to go, what happens next?

DANNY CEVALLOS, CNN LEGAL ANALYST: A will is just a legal document that says who gets your money and your property when you died. What happens if you die without a will?

SUBTITLE: Who gets what when we go?

CEVALLOS: If someone dies without leaving a legal will, it means they died intestate, and that can mean they're leaving their fortune up to chance.Each state is different but generally the law of intestacy determines who are your heirs and who gets your money and your possessions.Let me draw you a picture of what that means. If somebody dies, usually their spouse inherits everything. But if they have no living spouse, then everything usually goes to their children. But if they have no living children, then everything goes up to their parents. If they have no parents living, then everything may go to the sibling.And if you truly are somebody with no heirs whatsoever, then there's even a chance it may all go to the government.
