Second Amy Winehouse Death Inquest Confirms the First


Samir Hussein/Getty Images(LONDON) — A second inquest into the death of Amy Winehouse is complete, and the finding is the same as before: the singer drank herself to death.

A second investigation was ordered after the deputy coroner who supervised the first inquest in October of 2011, and who ruled Winehouse’s death was alcohol-related, was found to lack the necessary experience. 

The BBC reports the new inquest determined Winehouse’s blood-alcohol level was more than five times Britain’s legal limit for driving, and that she died from “alcohol toxicity.”

Winehouse died in July of 2011 at age 27.
