Amy’s family will have closure as there will be an inquest into how Amy Winehouse died.
The inquest into how Amy Winehouse died will be heard at St Pancras Coroner’s Court, Camley Street, London.
The family of Amy Winehouse is to find out how the singer died.
The 27-year-old Back To Black star was found dead at her flat in Camden, London, on July 23.
The details of her final hours will be revealed at an inquest into her death in the city.
An initial post-mortem examination proved inconclusive and no cause of death was given when the inquest was opened and adjourned in August.
Because of Winehouse’s very public battles with drink and drugs, news of her death was quickly followed by suggestions it could be related to one or the other. However, toxicology results showed there were “no illegal substances” in Winehouse’s body at the time of her death, her family said, although “alcohol was present.”
A family statement said: “Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.
“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.”
Her father, Mitch Winehouse, told mourners at her funeral his daughter had been the happiest she had been in a long time in the weeks before her death.
He said Winehouse had “conquered” her drug addiction and was “trying hard to deal with her drinking.”
The inquest will be heard at St Pancras Coroner’s Court, Camley Street, London.
