Amy Winehouse dead: Autopsy scheduled for Monday

Posted on

An autopsy on Amy Winehouse, who was discovered dead in her north London home on Saturday, is scheduled for today, though results of a full toxicology report will take weeks, according to Reuters. After conducting a post-mortem examination into the singer’s death, the coroner’s office told reporters that police investigated the scene and determined it “non-suspicious.” Winehouse has a long history of drug use, but police are saying there was no sign of drugs in her house.

The funeral could take place on Tuesday, according to the AP.

Winehouse’s father, Mitch, visited a fan-made shrine outside the residence on Monday, and thanked fans and the media for their consideration and condolences.”You people in the street, I can’t tell you what this means to us,” he told the gathered crowd. “It’s really making this a lot easier for us. 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.”
