Amy Winehouse Toxicology Results: No Illegal Drugs Present
Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her body when she died. According to The Hollywood Reporter, preliminary toxicology reports released by Amy Winehouse’s family showed that the singer’s death last month at the age of 27 was not caused by drugs.
“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,” a rep for the family said. “Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death. 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.”
Her family previously said that alcohol withdrawal caused Amy’s death, that she was trying to quit cold turkey…but these results seem to disprove that theory.
The report also rules out the theory from a law enforcement official who reportedly said, “This looks like she died after a drink and drugs binge.”
Looks like the mystery continues…
In the meantime, MTV is preparing an homage to the “Rehab” singer, which will air during the VMAs on August 28.
