Winehouse Toxicology Report Negative

Amy WinehouseIt seems that the mystery behind Amy Winehouse’s death is still unsolved. Most experts had assumed that her death was caused by illegal substances. However, a toxicology report now shows that nothing like that was in her body at the time of her death.

The late 27-year-old singer was found dead last month in her north London home. Winehouse was discovered by her bodyguard around 4pm on Saturday, July 23. The first postmortem examination proved inconclusive, and no cause of death was given. Now, despite further tests, doctors are still not sure what happened. So what caused the death of Amy Winehouse?

Family members and close friends say that the toxicology report showed alcohol in Amy’s body, but nothing more. It is still not known if the alcohol contributed to her death or not. The family went on to release a statement thanking the police and the corner for continuing their investigation into the death of the singer. They also wanted to thank the police for keeping them so well informed during the whole process. All the family can do now is sit and wait for the outcome of the inquest in October.

In light of this new report, it would seem that Amy’s dad, Mitch Winehouse, was right when he said that his daughter had conquered her drug dependency before she died. At the funeral, he said that his daughter had completed three weeks of abstinence. She had told him that she was done with drugs because she could not stand to look her family members in the face anymore.

Amy of course fought a well-documented battle with drinking and drugs. It was one that some people assumed would take her life before she reached her time. In fact, the month before she died, she was actually booed off stage in Belgrade on the first night of what was supposed to be a 12-show comeback tour. Her other dates were soon canceled.

Mitch did set up an Amy Winehouse Foundation in memory of his daughter. As soon as the foundation was opened it became flooded with donations. However, the foundation has had to be put on hold. Apparently, the family said some “dickhead” beat the family to registering the website domain name. The father was hoping that this foundation could be used to help children in need. For now, however, he has been forced to return all the donations.

Some may remember that Amy rose to fame back in 2003. It was then that she released her debut album called “Frank.” Her second and last album was called “Back to Black.” The album was released in 2006 and was able to reach Number 1 in the UK. The following year, she was awarded with a BRIT for Best British Female Artist and nominated for Best British Album.
