LONDON (AP) - Police say an autopsy on singer Amy Winehouse has not established what killed her.

The Metropolitan Police said Monday that further toxicology tests are needed and the results are expected in two to four weeks.

The singer was found dead Saturday at her London home aged 27-years old.

LONDON (AP) _ Amy Winehouse’s devastated parents formally identified her body on Monday and visited mourners outside her north London home to thank them for their support, as examiners conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of the troubled singer’s death at the age of 27.

A coroner opened and adjourned an inquest into the unexplained death, leaving Winehouse’s family free to plan her funeral. A private family service could be held as early as Tuesday.

The singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, thanked people for coming to lay bouquets, candles and handwritten notes, which lay in growing mounds across the road from the Victorian house where the soul diva died.

“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.”

The singer’s mother, Janis, was in tears as she examined the flowers, candles, vodka bottles, flags, drawings and handwritten cards left by neighbors, fans and well-wishers. Many of the offerings expressed the same sentiment: “What a waste.”

“I’ll remember her as a troubled soul,” said fan Ethna Rouse, who brought her 4-year-old son to leave a bouquet. “Like many artists in the world _ they are tortured souls, and that’s where the talent comes from.”

The singer died Saturday after publicly struggling with drug and alcohol abuse for years. Her body was discovered at home by a member of her security team, who called an ambulance. It arrived too late to save her.

Police have said her death is being treated as “unexplained” but not suspicious, and have said speculation that she might have suffered an overdose was inappropriate.

Police said an autopsy was being held Monday afternoon, and results would be announced later in the day or on Tuesday.

An inquest into the death was opened and adjourned at London’s St. Pancras Coroner’s Court. During the two-minute hearing, an official read out the name, birth date and address of Winehouse, described as “a divorced lady living at Camden Square NW1.”
