An autopsy performed Monday at St. Pancras Mortuary did not establish a formal cause of death, Metropolitan Police told Us in a statement. "We are awaiting the results of further toxicology tests," they added, which could take up to four weeks. An inquest was opened at St. Pancras Coroner's Court Monday afternoon; it was adjourned until October 26.

Mitch and Janis met with mourners outside their daughter's Camden Square home Monday morning.

"I can't tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier for us," Mitch told the well-wishers, who adorned the property with flowers, candles, vodka bottles, cigarettes, flags, wine glasses, drawings and handwritten cards. "We're devastated and I'm speechless, but thanks for coming."
