Singer Amy Winehouse Found Dead In Her Apartment In London

Sky News is reporting that British singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her apartment in London. While long known to have struggled with alcoholism and substance abuse, authorities do not yet know what killed her. She was 27 years old.

The news has also been reported by the Daily Mail, and several online sources, though no news about what caused her death has come in. The police report (h/t Anthony De Rosa) of her death describes it as “unexplained” with no further details. The Telegraph suggests it may have been a combination of drugs and alcohol:

They say that they received a call at 4.05pm calling for help for a woman in Camden. Paramedics were called to the scene, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The death is “unexplained” but not thought to be suspicious, according to police. Sources have told the Sunday Mirror that an overdose of drink and drugs is the suspected cause of death.

The Guardian has since published an obituary of the singer-songwriter.
