Amy Winehouse Cause of Death Released: Severe Alcohol Over-Consumption

by at . Comments

The mystery of what caused the death of Amy Winehouse has been solved.

Her family's claim that drugs were not found in her system were correct; Other reports that she died of a seizure brought on by detoxing now appear less valid.

Amy Winehouse's blood alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit when she passed away, directly resulting in her death, according to the coroner.

Amy Winehouse (1983-2011).

Winehouse died as a direct result of alcohol over-consumption, Suzanne Greenaway said, describing the final days of the 27-year-old a "death by misadventure."

Noting that Amy voluntarily pounded an extraordinary amount of liquor in the hours before she died on July 23, her death was accidental, but by her own hand.

Amy's family released this statement on the findings:

"It comes as a relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away ... it was likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days."

"The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time. She had started drinking again that week after a period of abstinence."

"It underlines how important our work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation is to us, to help as many young people and children as we can in her name."

"It means a lot to us and from the overwhelming messages of support we have had since Amy died, we know she meant a great deal to people all over the world."

"We want to thank everyone for that and for their continuing enthusiasm."

R.I.P.

Hmm, I was never a fan, rehab made me want to stab my ears with a pitchfork, however this was nonetheless sad. Thoughts to her family that more than likely caused her the problems she faced, they always do
