    default Amy Winehouse Died From Too Much Alcohol; Corner Finds

    Post by Cheaps on Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:12 am



    Amy Winehouse died as the unintended consequence of drinking too much alcohol, a British coroner ruled Wednesday.

    Coroner Suzanne Greenaway gave a verdict of "death by misadventure," saying the singer died of accidental alcohol poisoning. "The unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels (of alcohol) was her sudden and unexpected death," Greenaway said.

    The singer, who had fought drug and alcohol problems for years, was found dead in bed at her London home on July 23 at age 27. An initial autopsy proved inconclusive, although it found no traces of illegal drugs in her system.

    Pathologist Suhail Baithun told the inquest into the singer's death that Winehouse had consumed a "very large quantity of alcohol" - the level in her blood put her more than five times over the legal drunk-driving limit.

    Police Detective Inspector Les Newman, who was called after a security guard found Winehouse, said empty vodka bottles were scattered around her bedroom.

    Winehouse's doctor, Dr. Christina Romete, said the singer had resumed drinking in the days before her death after a period of abstinence.

    Romete, who saw Winehouse the night before she died, said the singer was "tipsy but calm." She said Winehouse had not spoken of suicide, and talked about her upcoming birthday.

    Romete said Winehouse had been prescribed drugs including the sedative Librium to help her cope with the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, but the coroner said these had played no role in her death.

    Winehouse family spokesman Chris Goodman said it was a relief to the family "to finally find out what happened to Amy."

    "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," he said.

    Damn. Alcohol ain't no joke. Should deter me from drinking, but it won't. RIP Amy.

    Tell me again why marijuana, heroin and cocaine are illegal?


    Ppl are so relieved that she did not die as a result of 'illegal' drugs.

    I think we all saw this one coming but WHO was it after the fact that said she died from withdrawal, that NOT having alcohol was what killed her? Want to amend that answer?

    I find it very surprising that it was alcohol. The safe assumption was illegal drugs. In the end it doesn't matter the cause, she's not going to be any less dead. She indulged in all sorts of substances and one of them got the best of her. I imagine her family is happy to have the final answer.

    I can't say I'm surprised; the only thing I ever knew about Amy Winehouse before she died was that she did drink. I remember on one episode of Everybody Hates Chris, the undertaker asks Julius 'you have 2 jobs and you WANT another one?' and Chris said 'that's like asking Amy Winehouse if she'd like another drink'.

    Actually, those into such have known for a long time that more ppl die from alcohol overdose (and withdrawal) than do from heroin.

    Again, all this stupid emphasis on illegal drugs - while very little is said of the extremely dangerous legal drug, alcohol.

    Too much of anything can be deadly, people have died from drinking too much water.
