Amy Winehouse Autopsy Won’t Happen Until Monday
The autopsy of Amy Winehouse will not happen before Monday, July 25, in the morning. CNN reports that the London Metropolitan police will schedule the autopsy to determine the cause of death tomorrow -- and not before.
"Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death," which "is being treated "as unexplained and there have been no arrests in connection with the incident," the police said.
While the authorities are not speculating as to the cause of death at this point, the Mirror reported that Winehouse, who was 27, purchased a dangerous and lethal cocktail of drugs on Friday night.
The world will have to wait until the autopsy and toxicology reports are conducted in order to get a clearer picture of the circumstances regarding the singer's death. Her body was found in her London flat on Saturday, July 23.
The Winehouse family issued a statement today, which said that they are "left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives." Amy's management firm, Metropolis Music, also issued a statement, which read: "We are trying to come to terms with the death of a dear friend and colleague, the most amazing artist and talent. We will always remember Amy as a vibrant, funny, caring young woman who made everyone around her feel welcome. We have lost a very special person, part of our family."
Hopefully once the autopsy results are revealed, the surviving members of the Winehouse family and her business associates will achieve some closure follwing this devastating loss.
