Hollywood Reporter – According to preliminary toxicology reports released by Amy Winehouse’s family, the singer had no drugs in her system at the time of her death.
“Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death,” a rep for the family tells TMZ.com.
“Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” adds the statement.
“The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October,” it concluded.
Winehouse’s father, Mitch, recently returned donations made to a foundation in her honor after he said somebody “stole” the domain AmyWinehouseFoundation.com.
An homage to Amy Winehouse will be aired at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 28.
Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23.
Still in shock that she died on my birthday. This was insanely shocking, but good to see that she wasn’t on drugs at the time.
Gordon Flavia, 56, was taken to the hospital shortly after crashing his Jeep into a carport at a Longview riverfront condominium yesterday, August 2nd, 2011. But before going to the hospital, he had quite an adventure.
After accidentally reversing into a carport at the condominiums, and knocking down one of the main beams, he decided he must hide. The carport was totaled, and there was sufficient damage to the building he crashed into, landing in their bathroom. The obvious solution? Cover yourself in human urine and hide in a portable toilet. This is precisely how police found Flavia, soaking wet and in a toilet.
Apparently they have to wait for toxicology reports to see if they can charge him with a DUI. I would have assumed that covering yourself in urine and trying to evade capture would be proof enough, or at the very least, a breathalyzer.
