“Rehab” singer’s family says alcohol was present in her body, but not sure if it contributed to her death
A month after her death, singer Amy Winehouse has given the world one last eyebrow-raising moment.
The family of the "Rehab" belter — who was found dead in her London residence on July 23 at the age of 27 — has released a statement announcing that Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died.
The statement went on to note that the full results of an inquest are due in October.
Winehouse, whose struggles with addiction and substance abuse were well-documented, had engaged in several efforts to clean up, and at one point had reportedly considered enlisting the services of celebrity rehab expert Dr. Drew Pinsky. An autopsy for the singer failed to determine the cause of her death.
