Amy Winehouse's autopsy reports are inconclusive




Amy Winehouse's autopsy turned up no evidence of what killed the 27-year-old singer, the AP reports, so while we wait weeks for toxicology tests, we have oodles of salacious details to wade through. Just what you wanted, we know.

After police announced the examination "did not establish a formal cause of death and we await the results of further toxicology tests," Amy's dad, Mitch Winehouse, thanked the public for their support. "I can't tell you what this means to us -- it really is making this a lot easier for us," he said. "We're devastated and I'm speechless but thanks for coming."

Meanwhile, the U.K.'s Sun revealed that a recent doctor's visit didn't turn up anything unusual. The paper says she was having regular checkups since, well, you know, she was living life pretty hard.

"The doctor was happy with her condition," a source said. "When he left on Friday night he had no concerns. Less than 24 hours later she was found dead." Sources say she had been feeling well enough to keep her neighbors up by playing a drum kit in her room Friday night.

The tabloid added that Amy was found dead in her bed by a security guard, and no drugs had been found near her body: "She was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep and when he went to wake her he found she wasn't breathing," rep Chris Goodman said. "He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed."
