An autopsy for singer Amy Winehouse will not be immediately performed, police say, as there are no signs of foul play surrounding the circumstances of her death.
Winehouse was found ‘beyond help’ today in her London home, and speculation is that the 27-year-old died of a drug overdose given her known struggles with addiction. She was set to play a series of gigs this summer, but bowed out partially and then completely after a poorly-received show in Serbia in which she stumbled around the stage, forgetting lyrics and behaving bizarrely.
Police in London have made a statement about Winehouse’s planned autopsy:
“The postmortem has not been scheduled yet but it is unlikely to take place before tomorrow,” a Scotland Yard spokesman tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “In the case of a murder it can be done within hours but this is not the case so tomorrow or even Monday is more likely in these circumstances.”
As of now, her death is being treated as unexplained and there is no official cause of death for Amy Winehouse.
