Amy Winehouse Cause of Death: "Unexplained"

by at . Comments

Amy Winehouse's cause of death is, as of this moment anyway, still being classified as "unexplained" by Scotland Yard. The singer died Saturday at 27.

Police issued a statement saying, "At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained and there have been no arrests in connection with the incident."

Ever since officials pronounced Amy Winehouse dead, they have been "operating under the suspicion" it was a drug overdose that led to her demise.

However, there is no concrete proof of that ... yet.

RIP Amy Winehouse

Scotland Yard said yesterday that, "Police were called by London Ambulance Service to a house in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05 hours on Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased."

However, a TMZ report suggests that when paramedics arrived, there were still "signs of life," although Amy died before she could be transported.

There is no information on who alerted the police. 

The autopsy, originally scheduled for today, is now slated for Monday. It may show clearer signs of what killed Amy, but right now, we don't know.

It's also unclear if any particular event triggered Amy's demise, though some UK newspapers have pointed to a breakup with boyfriend Reg Traviss.

In any case, Winehouse had made a surprise appearance at The Roundhouse, an intimate music venue in London three days before she died.

She appeared briefly to support her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, a young, talented singer in her own right, at an iTunes festival concert.

However, fans at the time tweeted that she had refused to take the microphone and appeared fragile and disheveled, stumbling on stage.

Amy recently canceled her own tour after a Serbian concert debacle. Clearly, she wasn't well for months - if not years - prior to her death.

May the songstress rest in peace and be remembered for her unique musical talents more than the addiction problems that plagued her ...

Very sad and worse is anyone being so hard on her especially after her death. I don't know if people realize it but heroin is extremely physically addictive and not psychology like most other drugs and extremely hard to quit because of the physical sickness associated with withdrawal. I have read she did use heroin amongst other drugs. Such a shame.

Yeah, maybe I'd she never started hard drugs in the first place, she wouldn't have died. Are you serious? Is alcohol a hard drug? No, but yet thousands of people die from alcoholism every year. Addiction is a disease. The substance of choice does not matter. No one is in a position to judge anyone who suffers addiction. What's the difference between a coke binge or a drinking bender? Nothing.

Poor troubled woman. No one ever sets out to be an addict. It makes me wonder if anyone close to her tried to do an intervention. They may have & she may have refused help. I agree with an earlier post that stated when the withdrawals are in full swing most people give up & leave the treatment Cntr. This is very sad.

Yeah, beating an addiction is hard, but if shed never started doiñg hard drugs in the first place, quitting wouldn't have been a problem. And she really didn't even try. I recall a song called "rehab" where she sang about not wanting to better herself because she liked how she was. Its sad, but she was given chances, she made her choice, and she suffered the consequences. I can't blame people for being unsympathetic.

Rock and Roll Heaven!!
Through out the world there are performers who will Never be recognized for the talent they have. To witness a singer who won multiple awards in a single Night, and had crowds spending big bucks to see her perform,Amy Winehouse was totally blessed, to be in a profession that can be a long, hard climb to success. From all indications,the last few shows that she actually walked out on stage to perform were a disaster and a disappointment for the faithful fans who came to see her. There may be a weakness within all of us that will Never be advertised for all the world to see, but to the end I believe that people were routing for a more positive outcome than the one that we are Now facing in the life of Amy Winehouse. PEACE!!
