The autopsy scheduled after Amy Winehouse’s death took place yesterday, but aside from the fact that “no suspicious circumstances” were found, coroners did not release any of the findings. Instead, what’s called a Section 20 postmortem was conducted, which suggests that the investigation will take substantially more time. From the Hollywood Reporter:
A Section 20 postmortem, as Winehouse had, however, implies that the Coroner believes “there is reasonable cause to suspect that a person has died a violent or unnatural death or in any other way which would require an inquest,” according to guidelines.
Also today, a representative for Winehouse said today that a bodyguard found Winehouse’s body. She died alone in bed.
UPDATE: A reporter for the Scottish Sunday Mail is claiming that Amy Winehouse’s voice mail was repeatedly hacked by reporters, in light of multiple wide-reaching accusations of phone hacking by the British tabloid press. Other targets of hacking, the reporter said, include Winehouse’s father Mitch, mother Janis, brother Alex and ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
The funeral will be held tomorrow for family and close friends, says a spokesperson. Neither the time nor place were disclosed.
