How did Amy Winehouse die?

Despite rumors that drugs were to blame for her tragic demise Saturday, the exact cause of death has yet to be pinned down, and may not be for weeks.

According to reports, the late singer’s autopsy – which took place on Monday at the St. Pancras Mortuary in London – has not established a cause of death.

Results are expected in 2-4 weeks, after further toxicology tests are performed.

Police who found Amy Winehouse dead say there were NO drugs or paraphernalia in her home. Various tabloid reports that she went on an epic bender the previous night have circulated, but those have not been confirmed.

Officials say her death was “not suspicious” and that she died alone in her bed. She was discovered by a security guard hired to check up on her.

For now, Amy’s death at age 27 – the same age that saw the end of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain – remains a mystery.
