Amy Winehouse: Large Quantity of Alcohol Consumed Before Death

Amy Winehouse: Large Quantity of Alcohol Consumed Before Death

Amy Winehouse‘s death has been ruled “death by misadventure,” or without the intention to do harm, from drinking too much.

The British singer, who died in July at the age of 27, consumed a “very large quantity of alcohol,” London coroner Suzanne Greenaway told the AP.

Amy‘s blood alcohol content was five times over the legal limit when she died; however, no illegal substances were found in Amy‘s system at the time of her death.

Our continued well wishes and thoughts go out to Amy‘s family and friends.

    So sad. Alcohol kills as readily as illegal drugs if you over do it.

    Is it insensitive that the Just Jared add next to this story is for Sky Vodka?

    Tell us all something we don’t know.
    She was a drug addict and alcoholic.
    Add that she was small, very pettitie and malnourished nd most likely jsut drank and drank in a short short with no food consumption, yeha, alcohol poisioning.

    Too bad, s sad her parents did help enough by tough love. I am not blaming them, but the mother seemed a bit sfoter and the father, well, shen Amy died he was in NYC working a gig with his band. Can you fame and fortune and cashing in on her career like Dina Trash and Dispicable Micheal Lohan.

    Thing is that someone a parent , agent, etc. has to get tough , get the person out of the fame game and have the comitted to a place. Britney Spears, who has ruined her life by getting with KFed, the middle to the end of her distruction, thank goodness she had her father take over her. She is still, per the law, under his conservorship. The mother, well, she published her book and was soft and liked the fame game and instead of not supporting Britney going ater KFedfreeloader or allowing the 16 yr. to ahve sleep over nights with the boyfriend at the house at that.
    Amy has found her peace.
    That is good she is no longer suffering. The girl did not want to live or like this world or her gifts. So be it. She is at last happy and at peace.

    @Brittney: I think it’s pretty LOL actually

  • laverdadduele

    She abused her body to the max and it just gave up. Drinking and smoking are the two most moronic things a person can do. I’ve never understand why would you do something that is going to harm your body?

  • Pedro

    I’m confused… don’t all of us go 5x over the legal alcohol limit whenever we get drunk all the time? because the standard legal limit is like .08, that’s like 2 beers. So, per se, she drank 10 beers and died? what

  • Prezes

    Because her body was in a terrible shape after all those drugs and starving. Such a shame.

  • Sean

    Wow this is a shock! Next we’ll find out the sun comes up tomorrow!
