Winehouses autopsy inconclusive, funeral today
Further toxicology tests are needed to determine the cause of her death and the results are expected in two to four weeks, according to the Metropolitan Police.
The funeral will take place today in accordance with Jewish tradition in Golders Green, north London, the Daily Mail reported
“The funeral will take place on Tuesday and will be a family and close friends affair,” a spokesman of the family said.
A coroner`s official in London says there are no suspicious circumstances in the death of the 27-year-old singer, who was found dead on Saturday at her London apartment by her security guard, reported Daily Mail.
“She (Amy) was identified by her family here at St Pancras this morning. A section 20 post mortem has been carried out today and samples have been taken for histology and toxicology to determine the cause of death. The scene has been examined by police who have deemed it non-suspicious,” said Sharon Duff, coroner`s officer at St Pancras Coroner`s Court.
The singer, who struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, was believed to be devastated after splitting up with her on-off boyfriend, film director Reg Traviss. “The last three days have been hell. We have suffered a terrible loss and want peace now. I can`t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love. I have lost my darling who I loved very much,” said Traviss.
The `Back To Back` hitmaker`s parents Mitch and Janis Winehouse paid an emotional visit to the shrine made in
tribute to the singer outside her London home yesterday.
They sobbed as they looked at the flowers, candles, cuddly toys and even cigarette boxes and vodka bottles left at the edge of police cordons surrounding the singer`s house.
“Amy was about one thing and that was love. Her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends and to you guys as well. We`re devastated and I`m speechless, but thanks for coming,”Mitch said.
