Winehouse autopsy inconclusive

Police investigation determines death 'non-suspicious'

An inquest into the death of British soul singer Amy Winehouse has been adjourned after an autopsy proved inconclusive, London’s Metropolitan Police said on Monday. The inquest will be reopened on Oct. 26, after toxicology reports have become available. Winehouse’s funeral will reportedly be held on Tuesday.

According to a statement from an official at London’s St. Pancras Coroner’s Court, a post mortem on the 27-year-old could not produce her cause of death, though a police investigation had determined that her passing last Saturday was “non-suspicious.”

In the wake of tributes from fans and a plethora of fellow artists, Winehouse’s music has experienced an expected sales resurgence. Her 2006 record “Back to Black” sat atop the iTunes album charts for most of Sunday and Monday, and re-entered the British album chart at No. 59.
