When Amy Winehouse was unexpectedly found dead in her London home July 23, much of the talk turned to the singer’s well-documented substance abuse problems.
But, today, toxicology reports reveal that Winehouse’s system was clear of illegal drugs. The results did indicate that alcohol was present, but “it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” a rep for the family said in a statement.
Fans took to Twitter to comment on the news, and while some remarkers shared positive messages, many expressed disbelief and shock.
