George Michael autopsy “inconclusive”

The autopsy performed on George Michael has yielded no answers to the cause of the singer’s death as police label it “inconclusive”.

Police have said that a post-mortem examination on the body of George Michael, who died on Christmas day, was “inconclusive”. The star who died on Christmas day morning, at the age of 53, was found in his Oxfordshire home by his partner, Fadi Fawaz. He was found lying, “peacefully in bed”. Fadi told The Daily Telegraph: “I went round there to wake him up and he was just gone. We don’t know what happened yet.”

More tests will be carried out to determine the singer’s cause of death. His death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.
