The 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' singer's death is still being looking into by police while toxicology tests are carried out.

Whitney Houston's cause of death might not be revealed for up to eight weeks while the Los Angeles Police Department continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the singer's death.

The 'I'm Every Woman' singer was found dead aged 48 at the Beverley Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday (11th February), following which an autopsy was carried out yesterday (12th February).

Los Angeles Deputy Coroner Ed Winter held a press conference n Sunday where he confirmed that the autopsy results have been put on hold at the request of detectives, pending the result of toxicology tests. 

"I'm not going to comment on any of the meds or prescriptions that were obtained," Winter said, in response to press queries about potential drug involvement. "As I said, it is a security hold." 

Winter confirmed that it could be between six and eight weeks before the results are released, but did say further details about the death of Whitney Houston may be revealed this week at the discretion of the police.

"No foul play is suspected," Winter added, echoing earlier police statements that there was no suspected criminal intent.

Since news of Whitney Houston's death broke over the weekend tributes have poured in for the singer, who's music career spanned almost three decades. 

Jennifer Hudson performed Whitney's signature song 'I Will Always Love You' at the Grammy Awards 2012 last night in tribute to the late singer.
