The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has completed its autopsy on late R&B singer Teena Marie but the case isn't closed yet.

Although there were no signs of trauma, Assistant Chief Coroner Chief Ed Winter says the actual cause of death won't be known until toxicology test results come back, which could take up to six weeks. He pointed out, though, that no illegal drugs were found in Marie's home.

The woman behind such hits as "Lovergirl" and "I'm a Sucker for Your Love" was found dead at her place in Pasadena last Sunday by her daughter. She was only 54.

At the time, local police did not suspect foul play and believed she passed away from natural causes.
