Amy Winehouse Coroner's Report: "No Illegal Drugs"

24 August 2011


Artist Johan Andersson has painted this amazing portrait as a tribute to the late singer

‘No illegal drugs’ were found in Amy Winehouse’s system, the results of toxicology tests carried out on Amy Winehouse’s body were released yesterday, confirmed.  ‘There were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death’ read the statement released by the singer's family, which then continues; 'results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.'

The Winehouse family thanked the police and coroner 'for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process.'  The results from an inquest will be released in October.

Amy’s legacy looks set to include not just her best-selling albums, Frank and Back to Black, but also a planned foundation for sufferers of addiction, like Amy, which is the pet project of her Dad, Mitch Winehouse and the rest of her family, despite some opportunist managing to register the name; 'The Amy Winehouse Foundation' with Companys House before the Winehouses could get round to it.

Meanwhile, the singer's fashion legacy continues. Sporty brand Fred Perry, which had confirmed previously that it would release more ranges designed by Amy before her death, have now released pictures. The new collection perfectly captures Amy's distinctive retro style with a fitted black body-con dress and numerous articles in a jumbo houndstooth print among them.  Every piece is black, grey or monochrome, which seems poignant in the light of the past month’s events.
