A small private funeral will be held for Amy Winehouse today to include only her family and closest friends. According to Jewish law someone should be buried within 24-hours of their death. However, the family was not able to get Amy’s body until an autopsy had been completed, delaying her funeral.
The Amy Winehouse autopsy named her cause of death as ‘unexplained’. Toxicology testing is still being conducted and the results are expected in the next few weeks.
Meanwhile there is already speculation about a post-mortem album being released. Winehouse had recorded a large volume of work over the last few years, especially while she was rehabilitating in San Lucia for a year. Sales of her albums and songs have skyrocketed since her death on July 23, 2011.
No further details of Amy Winehouse’s funeral is available at this time.
