It’s Official: Amy Winehouse Cause of Death is Alcohol Poisoning

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

U.K. coroners have revealed the official Amy Winehouse cause of death, ruling it “death by misadventure” due to alcohol poisoning. After remaining sober for three solid weeks, the troubled 27-year-old downed enough vodka to bring her blood alcohol content up to well over five times the legal limit, at 416 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.

Amy Winehouse’s family released a statement that expressed their reaction to Amy’s cause of death. It read, in part, “It is some relief 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… 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.”
