  • A spokesman for the family confirmed the results earlier this afternoon

    Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system at the time of her death, the results of a toxicology test – returned today – have confirmed.


    In a statement, family spokesperson Chris Goodman said the report showed no illegal substances present in Amy’s body – but did indicate she had been drinking alcohol.

    Goodman also thanked the police and coroner for their ‘thorough investigations,’ and said the Winehouse family will now await the outcome of an inquest into the singer’s death – due in October.

    ‘Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,’ he said.  

    ‘The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process.’

    ‘They await the outcome of the inquest in October.’

    Toxicology reports were ordered after a post-mortem failed to return the cause of the Amy’s death.
