Preliminary autopsy results released Monday on Amy Whinehouse’s death revealed no concrete cause as to why the singer died. London police said that toxicology results will be available two to four weeks from the time they submitted their samples. Whinehouse’s family and fans are still clueless about her death, and a lot of questions remain unanswered — including the possibility of a drug overdose.
The British singer was found dead in her London apartment last Saturday; she was just 27. Early reports say that Amy was already dead for six hours before her security guard, Andrew Morris, found her body. She last spoke to her team at around 10 am on July 23, and by 4 pm, she was already lifeless. Her body is now with her family and a private funeral will be done later this week, as Jewish traditions require a quick memorial for the dead.
According to a report from the LA Times, Whinehouse’s parents have denied accusations that Amy had cocaine, Ecstasy, and ketamine hours before she died. Police found no sign of drugs in her apartment and it was just last Friday when the troubled singer passed a physical exam.
United Kingdom representative for Amy Whinehouse, Chris Goodman, remembered that on that fateful day, Amy told security that she wanted to sleep but by the time Morris went to wake her up, she wasn’t breathing anymore. “He called the emergency services straightaway. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed,” Goodman continued.
Since her untimely death, Whinehouse’s record sales went up. Her debut album “Frank” and her Grammy-winning one “Back to Black” are raking in huge purchases at Amazon.com. On iTune, her “Back to Black” record is on top of the charts in countries all over the world, including the U.S., Canada, France, and Germany.
