Are you counting yourself among those called “surprised”? I’m actually too sad to even classify myself these days. I know most people would think it’s just as upsetting to find out that Amy actually did die of a drug overdose, because addiction is a big, bastard beast, but I’m finding it morbid in a very ironic sense that Amy was trying to get her life back in order and still this happened.
According to Amy’s family:
Toxicology tests have found that “no illegal substances” were in singer Amy Winehouse’s system at the time of her death last month, her family said Tuesday.
“Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” the family said in a written statement, citing test results provided to them by authorities.
I’m seriously bummed about this whole thing. I don’t think I can even talk about it anymore.
