Amy Winehouse Autopsy Inconclusive, Parents Meet Mourners
The tragic passing of Amy Winehouse over the weekend is still being investigated. Detectives may not know what killed the 27-year-old singer for another few weeks.
An autopsy completed on Monday did not draw any conclusions. Results from lab tests on her blood and tissue are due in about two to four weeks, according to Scotland Yard. “It did not establish a formal cause of death and we await the results of further toxicology tests,” a police statement said.
Winehouse’s parents visited the makeshift shrine outside their daughter’s home in London’s Camden neighborhood on Monday to thank mourners for their support.
“I can’t tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier for us,” said her father Mitch Winehouse.
“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, so we’re devastated and I’m speechless. But thanks for coming.”
Police were called to the singer’s Camden Square apartment on Saturday afternoon in response to a report of “a woman found deceased.” Her father was informed of his daughter’s death while preparing for a New York show with his band at the Blue Note club.
Fans and celebrities flooded Twitter to pay tribute to the Grammy-winning songstress, who died at the same age as legendary icons including Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin.
