26 Oct Coroner’s Report: Amy Winehouse Death Ruled By Alcohol
Amy’s blood alcohol level was 4 times the legal limit, according to the coroner’s report. The labeled it as “Death by misadventure” and drugs did not play a part.
Winehouse’s family has already released a statement:
“It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away, it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days.”
“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. She had started drinking again that week after a period of abstinence.”
“It underlines how important our work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation is to us, to help as many young people and children as we can in her name.”
“It means a lot to us and from the overwhelming messages of support we have had since Amy died, we know she meant a great deal to people all over the world. We want to thank everyone for that and for their continuing enthusiasm for the Foundation.”
In some weird way, I do not feel closure in knowing how Amy died. I am not sure Amy’s family does as well. The thing is, we lost a talent whose death may have been avoided.
When Amy passed, this song was playing in my head and I want to share it with you now.[audio:http://www.drfunkenberry.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/02-Track-2.mp3]
