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.

It's always sad when a someone dies, especially since she was so young. Another mystery like Michael Jackson, and others. Maybe when these famous people are no longer needed, or someone wants their catalogue of songs just like Michael Jackson owned they are bumped off??? Heath Ledger should not have died also. See there is more money in a dead singer than an alive one. I think the world is a sad place now, as something is going on out there, for all these famous people to just fall off the perch, so to speak.

i dont know what to say about this except that it is another sad case of alcohol and drug addiction gone terribly wrong,i wish all of the young people or older people for that matter would take a lesson in all of the great celebrities and there own family memebers that they have lost due to drugs and alcohol.i for one didnt care for amys music but it was still so tragic to lose her because she had her problems but deep down she was still a person like the rest of us.

I think her heart finally just gave out with all what she has been doing to her body it only take so much and finally it just gives out. She is now resting in the hands of God and no longer in pain and HE is taking good care of her.

"Amy Winehouse's toxicology results have proven she was not on any sort of illegal drugs at the time of her death" ...key word, ILLEGAL! Ummmm Michael Jackson, Anna Nichole Smith, and Heath Ledger all died from drugs that were legal. This report only tells that she did not have any "illegal" drugs in her system. You people are retarded if you think drugs were not involoved... I am not sure where you people came from; but from where I am sitting, I don't know anyone that could name more than one of her songs or that will really miss her anyways :)
