- George Michael's death has become suddenly mysterious. Because of that, George initial autopsy was ruled "inconclusive" after a post-mortem examination conducted on Thursday.
Thames Valley Police announced on Friday that further tests are needed, and results will not be known for several weeks, The Associated Press reports.
Michael (53), died in Christmas Day from apparent heart failure at his country home in Goring in Oxfordshire, England. Police are treating the singer's death as "unexplained but not suspicious," indicating they discovered no evidence of foul play.
After news broke about the former Wham! singer's death, his representative issued a statement of "great sadness," noting that Michael "passed away peacefully at home."
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Michael's partner Fadi Fawaz expressed his shock.
"We were supposed to be going for Christmas lunch. I went round there to wake him up and he was just gone, lying peacefully in bed. We don't know what happened yet," he said.
Thames Valley police said a file would be prepared for the Oxfordshire coroner.
