To the reader that asked about the autopsy protocols, usually a 'preliminary autopsy', I believe, is performed immediately. This particular autopsy is done rather quickly. Then the 'final autopsy' is performed afterwords, which then usually takes many weeks with a final conclusive report. Much testing is done. I was sorry to hear of her death at a young age. We all have to be very careful when taking medications and then stopping them cold. As for the mean comments written on this thread about her, it is a 'free country' still and you are certainly allowed to speak your mind. However, as far as having any class at all - - you certainly will never have that. R.I.P. Lady T.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to her family. Ms Teena was one of the most Fizz soul singers in my book and one of the best singers of all times. I remeber back in the day when she first came out and that voice was like velvet, powerful, strong and clear. I sang Fire & Desire until I knew all the words and everything that went along with that song. She will be missed by me, I was fortunate to see Ms Teena at a live concert in Bermuda some years ago, that was the highlight of the concert she was Fizz!!!!!!!! I want to get all of her albums, where would I inquire about doint that. Always Paulz.

People disgust me. A person dies and morons write idiotic statements. Lady T was a talented musician but more than that she was a human being, someones mother, relative , friend, a-holes. If her neck ate her head, than your penis should eat your body oh but that would imply you have one. So get a tweezer and look for it and stop posting stupid comments

I love Teena Marie's music and voice. A movie should be made about Teena Marie and Rick James's relationship and musical collaborations. Actress Jenna Von Oy should play Teena and actor Gary Dourdan should play Rick.

Rest In Peace, Lady T. I love you.

She died in her sleep. Sounds like Obstructive Sleep Apnea to me. She stopped breathing during REM sleep because her airway was closed off. She literally died in her sleep. I wonder whether Teena Marie had ever taken a Sleep Study from an Otolaryngologist to determine Sleep Apnea? I wonder whether the coroners thought of the possibility? Sounds to me like the focus of the autopsy was the existence of illicit drugs , of which none were detected.

Makes one say "hmmmmm..."

I was ten year's old when "Square Biz" was released. I fell instantly in love with her, some folks got stuck on her color, I always believed she was sent back as a white woman to show us that color is relative. As a promoter Teena Marie,I attend many concerts, I was invited to attend an album release party for her a few years ago. When she took the stage I felt like I was 10 years old again out of all the performers I've seen, that WAS the BEST show I ever went to....We may never know why she choose to transend when she did you can't control when you die all I know is I continue to be blessed by her music every day.

Teena is a music icon who will be remembered way after many of these so called "singers" of today. Lady Tee, much Love and Respect to you. You will be missed.
