LONDON (WIFR) -- An autopsy is being held to determine the cause of Amy Winehouse's death, but a coroner's official says police have found no suspicious circumstances.

The singer was found dead Saturday at her London home at the age of 27. An autopsy is being held with results expected later. Coroner's officer Sharon Duff says "the scene was investigated by police and determined non-suspicious."

LONDON (AP) -- Amy Winehouse's father has greeted mourners laying flowers outside her north London home, just days after she died.

Mitch Winehouse thanked people for coming to lay bouquets, messages and handwritten notes and said "this means so much to my family."

The 27-year-old singer died Saturday after publicly struggling with drug and alcohol abuse for years.

Police have said the cause of her death is being treated as "unexplained," and have said speculation that she might have suffered an overdose is "inappropriate."

Police say a post-mortem is expected Monday afternoon.
