Sky News has reported her parents Mitch and Janis "formally identified" Winehouse's body Monday morning and that there "no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Amy Winehouse."

A spokesperson for the Winehouse family told BBC News that they are hoping to hold their daughter's funeral as soon as possible, but the post-mortem and police investigation have "made it impossible" to set a date.

Early Monday morning, Mitch and Janis Winehouse joined their daughter's boyfriend, Reg Traviss, to meet with mourner's outside the singer's Camden Square home in London.

"I can't tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier for us," Mitch said. "We're devastated and I'm speechless, but thanks for coming."
