The initial autopsy of deceased British singer Amy Winehouse found no conclusive cause of death, police announced Monday.

The additional toxicology tests will be conducted, and that could take two to four weeks to complete, according to Associated Press.

The 27-year-old singer was found dead in her flat in London on Saturday, before the paramedics arrived.

Sky News quoted a source as saying Winehouse might die from a suspected drugs overdose, but reports indicated that no drug was found in her flat.

Winehouse became an international star in 2007 with her five Grammys-winning album "Back to Black".

She had long suffered a number of health issues as she was taken to hospital and treated once in 2008 and again in 2010.

According to ABC News, a family spokesman addressed the media on Monday that Winehouse's funeral will be held on Tuesday.
