Now three months since the passing of Amy Winehouse, the cause of the singer’s death has remained the center of much controversy, with many citing the star’s drug addiction as the only possible explanation for her untimely demise.
Today, an inquest into her death revealed all.
All the details below…
According to coroner Suzanne Greenway:
Ms. Winehouse had consumed sufficient alcohol at 416mg per decilitre [of blood] and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death.
More than five times the legal drink-drive limit.
More interestingly, no traces of illegal drugs were found in the ‘Back To Black‘ belter’s body and her organs were reportedly in healthy condition but it was the dangerously high levels of alcohol in her system that stopped her breathing which then put her in a coma.
She was 27 years old.
