So this is happening. Via BBC News:
Toxicology results have shown “no illegal substances” in Amy Winehouse’s system at the time of her death, according to her family.
They say tests indicate alcohol was present but it cannot yet be determined if it played a role in the singer’s death last month.
Winehouse’s family thanked police and added that they await the outcome of an inquest on 26 October.
I think there’s some crucial information we need to look at before I make note that the “report” claims no illegal drugs were in Amy’s system and point out that drug addicts will eat whatever drugs they can get their hands on because they’re drug addicts:
1. The source of this information is Amy’s family who tried to tried to say she was drug-free for three years before immediately handing out her clothes to fans to destroy any evidence. Also these are the same people who said she didn’t need rehab and kept shoving her into a studio to black out with a microphone in her mouth. “Metal popsicles,” she called them.
2. Scotland Yard hasn’t even seen since this report yet. But what do the bloddy bobbies know, ‘ey? Too right.
3. Amy’s family’s pet theory has always been that because she was free of drugs, she died of alcohol withdrawal. The report – according to them – says she had alcohol in her system, so let’s assume their new pet theory is bubonic plague. They’ve got a good feeling about this one.
4. The “report” claims no illegal drugs were in Amy’s system, so apparently her family thinks no one will remember drug addicts will eat whatever drugs they can get their hands on because they’re drug addicts. (I suck at spoilers.)
UPDATE: Surprise! Her family refuses to comment on the presence of prescription drugs now.
