UPDATE: Amy Winehouse Toxicology Report Two to Four Weeks Away

Officials are waiting for the results of a toxicology test, which are anticipated in two to four weeks. A coroner's representative maintains police have found no suspicious circumstances in the 27-year-old singer's Saturday death. 

Meanwhile, details about Winehouse's final hours are emerging. Chris Goodman, her U.K.-based representative, told media outlets today that a bodyguard hired to keep watch over the singer discovered her body. 

"She was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep, and when he went to wake her he found she wasn't breathing," Goodman told MTV News. "He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed." 

Winehouse's parents returned to her north London house today, calling themselves "devastated and speechless." 

"Amy was about one thing, and that was love," Mitch Winehouse said to the fans and media gathered at the makeshrift shine outside his daughter's home. "Her whole life was devoted to her family friends, and to you guys as well. So we're devastated, and I'm speechless." 

Winehouse's family said she had visited the doctor as recently as Friday and received a clean bill of health. There were also reports that she had entered treatment again as recently as last month.
Winehouse was working on an album before she died but canceled her latest tour last month after a Serbia show.
