Amy Winehouse Toxicology Results: Singer NOT on Drugs at Time of Death

by at . Comments

Amy Winehouse's toxicology results have proven she was not on any sort of illegal drugs at the time of her death, according to her family members.

She had been drinking alcohol, however.

Amy's family says officials have not determined if the booze played a role in the soul singer's death. However, the lack of drugs - if true - is a surprise.

Troubled Singer

Amy Winehouse's substance abuse problem has been documented for years.

A rep from Scotland Yard told TMZ that the law enforcement agency has not yet received a copy of Winehouse's toxicology results from the coroner.

Amy was found dead in her London apartment July 23.

Her family swore she was off drugs at the time of her death, and even put out the theory that she died from alcohol withdrawal and/or seizures.

Here's what the Winehouses said in a statement:

"Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities confirm 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."

It's worth noting that Amy's family claims no illegal drugs were present in her system, but they made absolutely no mention of prescription drugs.

A source close to the family would not comment on prescription drugs, even though he and the rest of the family were categorical on illegal drugs.

The family says they have seen toxicology reports which discount illegal drugs. No further information has been released as of this article's posting.

As for prescription drugs, there are a number that contain opiates similar to heroin, which she famously battled, including OxyContin and morphine.

That's just us speculating, but given who we're talking about and her young age, it's worth noting. What do you think? Leave a comment below.

I think personaly either perscription drugs or illegal she had substance abuse issues anyway which is hard to get away from. it is definitely a cover up if they say dying from alcohol withdrawel she had a lot of issues, alchol withdrawel cudnt b main issue.

She could have very well died from her heart just giving up. People fail to understand alcohol is just another drug and in my experience it may be the most destructive one of all. If she was trying to detox off of alcohol she could have had seizures and convulsions and died that is how serious alcohol detox can be. You cannot die from detoxing off of heroin,, but you can easily die detoxing off of alcohol. Or on the other hand she may have drank so much that she went into an alcoholic coma it only takes a little less than half of one percent approximately .50 can be a lethal dose of alcohol.But either way it is tragic because by her not having other drugs in her system shows that she was attempting to change and clean up her life she just got taken out to soon. RIP Amy Winehouse.

Heavy alcohol and mixed alcohol in your system is just as dangerous than overdose with mixed drugs. Also how high can you go with liquor if you know what I mean because alcoholic is a disease.

The way this article is worded by the reporter is vile. It's littered with spiteful little suggestions which question the result of the report - or at least is trying to throw some ambiguity into the findings. They are forgetting Amy Winehouse was a daughter, sister and friend apart from being a fantastic talent. They should show some respect and leave the results to the people who have spent years being trained in this field. The full report won't be ready until October, so at least there will be some respite from this sensationalist journalism.

We need to respect the fact that she was a good musician. She got involved with drugs for a reason, her bad boyfriend...seems like her parents tried so hard to get her on track...just don't blame all on her........these drugs should not be available and people should be penalized for producing them...but guess what no one cares cause it involves alot of profits...billions...specially with rich drug lords that pay for to produce..thats why so many people die everyday in Mexico or other countries..no one cares...more people die in Mexico than the war of Afganistan now a days. Is a sad reality. I guess drugs/evil rule in some way....
