The family of Amy Winehouse issued a statement today declaring that a toxicology report indicates no drugs were found to be in her system at the time of her death. “Results indicate that alcohol was present,” the statement reads, “but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.” This, of course, now leaves many questions as to what ultimately led to the singer’s demise unanswered.
It was first reported that Amy was found dead in her Camden flat in London on Saturday, July 23. The British pop-soul singer was 27 at the time of her death. Drug consumption had been assumed by many to be at the root of it, given both her erratic behavior on stage earlier this year in Belgrade and her past problems with substance abuse.
“The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process,” the Winehouse family’s statement continues. “They await the outcome of the inquest in October.”
Amy’s final known completed recording, “Body And Soul,” is set to appear on Tony Bennett’s upcoming Duets II album, which has a September 20 release date.
