No illegal substances found in Amy Winehouse’s system

Toxicology reports have revealed that no illegal drugs were found in pop-soul-blues singer Amy Winehouse’s system when she died.

The reports follows weeks of speculation over Winehouse’s death, with several already establishing that the singer died of an overdose. Maltese drug fixer Toni Azzopardi had alleged that he helped Winehouse buy £1,200 of crack and heroine.

Winehouse’s father, Mitch, was reported as having wept and said he was pleased to now be able to “set the record straight.

Some alcohol was found in her body, but the cause of death will not be announced until the inquest verdict is unveiled on October 26.

Winehouse, 27, was found dead at her London flat on July 23. Fans, friends and family had gathered outside her flat in Camden to pay tribute to the star. Winehouse had been secretly engaged to film director Reg Traviss.
