There are two updates to the death of R&B singer-songwriter Vesta Williams, whose body was discovered Thursday night in a suburban Los Angeles hotel room. The autopsy was concluded on Sunday and "the cause of death is undetermined pending toxicology results, which will take 4-6 weeks," reports TMZ.
The death may have been a drug overdose:
Multiple bottles of prescription pills were found in the El Segundo, CA hotel room where R&B singer Vesta Williams died ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. We're told "several bottles" were discovered -- some empty. Law enforcement sources tell us officials first received a call related to Vesta's death around 6PM Thursday night. Sources tell us the death is being treated as either an accident or suicide, but not a homicide.
Vesta Williams had a string of hits in the 1980s and 1990s. The singer is best known for "Congratulations," a song about a woman who discovers her former lover is about to get married. The ballad became a staple at talent and drag shows in the 90s.
There is no information yet on a memorial or arrangements. Williams was 54-years-old.
