With results finally emerging a month to the day of her passing, Amy Winehouse’s autopsy has allegedly revealed that there were no illegal drugs in the singer’s body at the time of her death, at least according to her family. Said their spokesperson Chris Goodman, “toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death.” While Amy’s family reports that it is still unclear what killed the Back To Black musician, the results supposedly do show that “alcohol was present” in her body.
Winehouse’s rehab stint earlier this year, combined with her rocky history of substance abuse, had many assuming drugs would be a significant factor in Amy Winehouse’s death. However, prior to autopsy results, Amy’s family suspected alcohol withdrawal might have been a factor instead. There will apparently be a second inquest into the singer’s death in October, which will hopefully offer a clearer picture as to the exact circumstances around her passing.
