Initial post-mortem test results on the body of Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes have shown that the TLC singer suffered a fractured skull in the fatal crash on Friday.

Lopes was travelling in an all-terrain vehicle in Honduras when the driver lost control. Eight other passengers were injured, some of them seriously.

A spokesman for the US embassy in Honduras said her body will be taken to the US on Tuesday or Wednesday, after the autopsy and necessary paperwork has been completed.

Tributes to the 31-year-old singer poured in over the weekend. Pop group 'NSync are the latest to voice their sympathy.
