Amy Winehouse Toxicology Tests Results Revealed
Toxicology tests on late jazz songstree Amy Winehouse have revealed that no illegal drugs were in the star’s system when she died in her North London home last month, a rep for her family tells The Associated Press. Alcohol, on the other hand, was present.
Winehouse had struggled with drug and alcohol addictions, spending time in and out of rehab for the past several years. The toxicology report showed that “alcohol was present” in the 27-year-old singer’s body when she passed away on July 23, but it hasn’t been determined if it played a role in her sudden death, according to a statement issued Tuesday.
“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,” the statement read. “Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.”
Winehouse’s family is still unsure what killed the “Rehab” singer, who won five Grammys for her 2006 blockbuster Back to Black. An initial autopsy was inconclusive and foul play is not suspected. We’ll know more upon the outcome of an October inquest into the songstress’ death.
