British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Camden home after police received an emergency call for help. Amy Winehouse was 27.
We all saw this coming a mile away, but what a sad tragedy for a young woman so full of talent!
Amy Winehouse, the troubled singer who has battled years of drug and alcohol addictions, was discovered dead at her North London flat.
Police report that paramedics discovered Winehouse’s body at around 4:15 p.m. after an emergency call.
London police confirmed responding on Saturday afternoon in response to “a woman found deceased.”
“On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene,” a police statement said.
“At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained,” police said.
For now, Amy’s cause of death is not known but police do not expect foul play.
Winehouse’s death comes weeks after she canceled her entire European tour after her Belgrade show, where she wandered aimlessly on stage and slurred through her songs.
Amy married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2007 and the relationship was a tumultuous one. Blake was incarcerated in 2008 and the couple divorced in 2009.
Sources report Amy Winehouse died of a drug overdose.
