Amy Winehouse Toxicology Report Released, Only Alcohol Present at Time of Death
Although the 27-year-old “Rehab” singer publicly struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, only alcohol was in her system at the time of her death.
Radar Online reports:
“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,” her family said Tuesday. “Results indicate that alcohol was present, but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.”
In a statement, the family of the late singer said:
“The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October.”
Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23, and original autopsy results to find a cause of death were ruled inconclusive. Also, the formal inquest into her death will resume on October 26.
