George Michael’s death hasn’t been let go by police, as they continue to take statements about the case regarding the singer’s death.

Thames Valley Police said Friday that the ongoing investigation of Michael's Christmas Day death is normal when it comes to deaths that are “unexplained but non-suspicious,” The Associated Press reported.

In a statement, police said the investigation is “standard practice in cases such as this to allow the coroner to determine the circumstances of the death.”

The 53-year-old pop star was found dead on Christmas Day at his home in Goring in Oxfordshire, England, The New York Times noted.

According to a police statement, “Thames Valley Police were called to a property in Goring-on-Thames shortly before 2 p.m. Christmas Day. Sadly, a 53-year-old man was confirmed deceased at the scene.”

Police are trying to track down anyone who visited Michael’s home the week before he died, according to the Daily Mail.

Michael’s partner Fadi Fawaz, who found the body, has been questioned by police in the midst of fears that the singer’s death was due to a drug overdose.

Police say they plan to speak with Michael’s relatives, friends and neighbors as well.

Even though the cause of death hasn’t been officially released, Michael’s manager, Michael Lippman, told The Hollywood Reporter that his client died of heart failure while “in bed, lying peacefully.”

“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” Michael’s publicist Connie Filippello said in a statement. “The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”
