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.

Wow, good for you Heidi. You are indeed a stellar, special human being, except that there is no such thing as "chrons disease." Please check your spelling if youwish for people to take you seriously.

GeronimoG, a real autopsy is not a television show,as you surely must know. Such things are not solved so quickly. What a comment. And if you're wondering, Mary Ann and Ginger were not actually stranded on Gilligan's Island. Where on that island would Ginger possibly get her gowns dry cleaned or her hair done?

The sad thing this didn't need to happen to her but she didn't get the proper help or she was afraid to get the proper help what ever the reason it is truely sad because she had so much to offer. I am sure he NOW resting in peace where apprently she wanted to be because this side of the curtain wasn't very nice to her and now she on the otherside of the curtain where she is so much happier.

What did they do in the autopsy? Did they carve her up like a turkey and test every little organ and cell in her body? Dana Delany is in that new series, *Body of Proof* and it wouldln't of taken so long for the AUTOPSY to get done... so rediculous... Bottom line, is she DRANK herself to DEATH... She is in a better place now.RIP. *Amy*

You mean it took from July to Oct to figure this out?

Such a wasted life. Most of the time, she could barely stand up, much less sing. It's a shame that she wasn't taken off the streets, and put in a cell until she could function.

What's distasteful about this poor girls story is the way her so called loving father is trying to get a career off her fame..
