The coroner's office said her death "was investigated by police and determined non-suspicious." The late singer's family identified her body early today, reports the New York Post.

Winehouse's father, mother, and brother visited her Camden apartment and spoke with mourners gathered outside. "I can't tell you what this means to us," said Mitch Winehouse.
