Winehouse Tests Show Body Contained “No Drugs” At Time Of Death

Published: Tuesday 23rd Aug 2011 by Sam

Amy Winehouse‘s rockstar lifestyle left many saddened, yet unsurprised by her tragic passing last month. Indeed, the vast majority assumed her untimely demise was due to drug abuse.

However, toxicology reports released today confirm illegal drugs did not play a role in the 27 year old’s death.

Full story below…

The late singer’s spokseperson issued a statement to the press today confirming the outcome:

”Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that 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.”

Many of those parading the news stations touting what was ultimately the wrong cause will, no doubt, be eating many helpings of humble pie now. T

hat said, the worse has sadly already transpired. Here’s hoping the Amy tragedy will serve as a cautionary tale.

    She may not have been taking drugs before she died but one cannot deny the fact that the many years of binging on drugs did not do her any favours in the long run.

  2. TR August 23, 2011

    Agree with the 1st comment! Just because it wasn’t an over-dose, does NOT mean severe and protracted drug use didn’t lead to bad complications!!

  3. pop royalty (RUDE BOY) August 23, 2011

    OK ! but taking drugs for a long time will affect your health anyway !

    R.i.p AMY 😥

    Yaaaaaaaaaaas gurl!!! And I hope the amount of alcohol didn’t play a role in her death either because I want her to have the last laugh at all her naysayers.

    Yes her past lifestyle & drug use most probably played a huge part in her death because of the effects on the body BUT it’s nice to know that it wasn’t the actual culprit in her passing.

    Sadly though, while this news is the silver lining, it doesn’t bring her back. I hope she’s resting peacefully wherever she may be.

  5. Rich August 23, 2011

    Wow. it definitely did a number on her health though

  6. Nichole August 23, 2011

    She may not have had any drugs in her system at the time of her death, but I think her body broke down from the drug and alcohol abuse, thus resulting in her death.

    It probably has contributed to her lack of health in recent years which is quite publicly documented. Losing her is sad regardless.

  8. Geronimo Deuces August 23, 2011

    its very sad… but i guess her time was up

  9. Jasmine August 23, 2011

    If it was not a drug overdose then what was it? I think the report is wrong.

  10. JER August 23, 2011

    wow

  11. Do you really? August 23, 2011

    LIES!!!!!, DRUGS STAY IN YOUR SYSTEM FOR FOR SOME TIME, EVEN IF SHE DIDNT TAKE ANY DRUGS THAT NIGHT, SHE TOOK SOME WITHIN 30DAYS OF HER DEATH!!! THIS REPORT IS SO FALSE, DONT TRY TO CLEAN UP THIS WHITE GIRLS MESS, SHE WAS A CRACKHEAD, TELL OTHERS THE TRUTH SO HER DEATH WONT BE A TOTAL WASTE, AT LEAST OTHERS CAN KNOW THE EFFECTS OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL!

  12. mobwife…….I hate idiots! August 23, 2011

    R.I.P. Amy Winehouse! You will forever be knowns as the soulful voice who praved the way for the likes of Adele & Duffy!

    I’m sure this news will not be widely spread in the American media. They were so quick to blame her death on a drug overdose! I hate the media!

    *press play on “Back To black”.

  13. mobwife…….I hate idiots! August 23, 2011

    Her family said she had a history of seizures.

    She died of A SEIZURE!

    Why is that so difficult to believe?

    Anyway, ppl are going to hate, what can you do?…..R.I.P. AMY Baby!

  14. Live, Love, Party August 23, 2011

    That’s kind of a coincidence considering she had large doses of drugs and even went to a dealer a little before her death.

  15. CURLY SUE August 23, 2011

    NO ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES? SO MAYBE THERE WERE LEGAL DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM…

  16. Eddie August 23, 2011

    A lot of people die while trying to quit due to the urges. Maybe that was the case.

  17. Live, Love, Party August 23, 2011

    This is a HUGE lie. She mixed an ecstasy pill and alcohol hours before her death. That’s what caused it. She committed suicide. Why is that so hard for ppl to see? She knew her fate. But she kept abusing the drugs and didn’t care. That’s a suicidal act to me!

  18. aisha aguilera keys August 23, 2011

    I honestly think that she tried to deal w/ this drug pb personally, and that’s what got the best of her.

  19. Misfit August 23, 2011

    @ curly sue

    I was thinking the same thing. Look at the wording of the statement. Legal drugs are just as deadly, especially with alcohol involved.

    Could be Vicodin, etc. Guess we will find out, when the final report is released in October. In any case, this whole episode is so sad.
    R.I.P. Amy 🙁

  20. lol August 23, 2011

    hmmm this is kinda good news R.I.P. Amy *B**** slaps haters who speak ill of the dead*

  21. JUDAS666 August 23, 2011

    THAT STATEMENT DOESNT MEAN ANYTHING… TONS OF “LEGAL” DRUGS CAN MAKE ONE DIE IN AN OVERDOSE. ALSO, THE OBVIOUS LONG TERM DRUG USE CAN DO A BODY IN INCLUDING UNEXPECTED SEIZURES AND ALCOHOL POISONING. AMY WAS STILL A DRINKER BEFORE HER DEATH. EVEN HER DAD MITCH SAYS SHE WAS STILL BATTLING IT THOUGH HE SAID SHE WAS 3 WEEKS CLEAN FROM ALCOHOL. LET’S SAY IT NOW… AMY DID NOT DIE FROM “NATURAL CAUSES”. NEXT.

  22. Bitter b****** make me sick…. Throw up (queenbey) August 23, 2011

  27. Cjey August 23, 2011

    Some ppl on here are some damn ignorant #a mess, let that girl RIP who gives a f*** if drugs were in her system prior to her death damn get a f***** life!

  28. Live, Love, Party August 23, 2011

    @Bitter b****** I read it on the website. Don’t feel like finding the exact source tho. She battled with lung problems from smoking crack and had irregular heartbeats. People told her if she was on the path she was doing that she would soon have to breath on an oxygen supply. She didn’t care. Kept abusing. I’m not saying she consciously committed suicide but I DID read somewhere she had taken some drugs before her death. I don’t think she wanted to live. Ppl who are depressed don’t care if they live or die. And a person who has s** are not always aware of what may happen such as an std cuz you can still get a disease thru oral s** or w/ a condom. Amy knew her circumstances. She didn’t care.

  29. Live, Love, Party August 23, 2011

    @Cjey I’m not being disrespectful but C’MON. She did this to her self. She was self-destructive. There are ppl who die tragic deaths like plane crashes, murder, genocide and ppl are worried about someone who messed up their own life. Like it’s sad and I admit I felt sorry that she died that day but ppl knew this would happen. She was not a stable person and she had drug problems. There was ppl who cared about her well-being but she was selfish enough to not care about her fans and ppl that admired her and esp her family. She wasted her life! I’m just telling the truth. No more holding back. Rip tho.

  30. DRB August 23, 2011

    You “read somewhere” that she bought ecstacy. Alrighty then. You talk with such assurance as if you were there. I guess you have a point with “somewhere” as your source. Sounds like a tabloid, but ok.

  31. Madonnalover August 23, 2011

    @live love party Amy Winehouse is just like anyone else with a drug addiction problem. And for one, she dosent owe her fans a damn thing. She had ongoing problems within herself. Call her insecure, selfish, etc. but dont disrespect her. You cant judge someones life if you werent there to witness any of it.

  32. King B August 23, 2011

    @ LIVE, LOVE, PARTY:

    So you get your info from gossip sites, which according to you must be a hell of a lot more reliable than a toxicology report, something that is based on FACTS.

    Right?

  33. Sleazy August 23, 2011

    Wow you ppl disgust me its like some of you Want her to be dead cus of Drugs or alcohol! Sick ppl honestly

  34. Hella Good August 23, 2011

    Some of these comments are absolutely disgraceful. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    ———————————————————————————————————————

    Her father, Mitch Winehouse, told mourners at her funeral his daughter had been the happiest she had been in a long time in the weeks before her death.

    He said she had “conquered” her drug addiction and was “trying hard to deal with her drinking”.

    In a heartfelt eulogy, Mr Winehouse said his daughter had recently “completed three weeks of abstinence” adding she had told him: “Dad I’ve had enough of drinking, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces any more.”

    ————————————————————————————————————————

    Yes she had problems, but at least she was trying. Remember, no human being is perfect.

  35. Hella Good August 23, 2011

    @ Sleazy – I couldn’t agree more.

  36. nice_gurl August 24, 2011

    Surprising news, but her body could have gone into shock and had a siezure or something from quitting drugs. RIP Amy.
