AMY WINEHOUSE’s toxicology results are in, and according to the findings, she had no traces of illegal drugs in her system when she died—but there was alcohol.
The results from Amy’s toxicology tests have finally arrived—exactly a month following her untimely death—and they are quite shocking. As per the findings, the “Back To Black” singer did not have any illegal substances in her blood (though there was alcohol), which disproves the belief that she died from a drug overdose.
Or does it?
Amy may not have taken any illegal drugs prior to her death, but what about prescription medicine? According to TMZ, the Winehouse family did not say whether there were traces of the legal type of drugs in her system, which is just as likely to cause death if taken in large amounts or if mixed with alcohol.
The Winehouse family released the following statement:
“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.
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.”
As previously reported by celebrity news, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23.
