Amy Winehouse Found Dead at Her Flat in Camden Town London

By Stizzard

The death of Miss Winehouse is not thought to be suspicious but is “unexplained”.a possible cause could be an overdose of drink and drugs. Just last month Amy Winehouse cancelled her European tour after she had a breakdown on stage in Serbia. A statement on her website said “Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.” Her friends said earlier this month: “Her drinking is totally out of control. Amy is constantly out of control on vodka.
“She is rattling about at home in north London drinking herself into oblivion. Three times this week she has been so drunk she passed out.”

She married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2007 and the pair had a violent relationship at times. Fielder-Civil was sent to prison for conspiring to pervert the course of justice in 2008 and the couple divorced a year later in 2009. Miss Winehouse’s father, Mitch, is said to be returning to the UK from New York. He had been due to perform at a New York jazz club called The Blue Note on Monday.
A message of condolence has been placed on the club’s website, reading: “We are very sad to report that the Mitch Winehouse performance on Monday July 25th is cancelled due to the unexpected death of his daughter, Amy Winehouse. Our condolences go out to Mitch and his family.”

Tributes to the singer have been appearing on most of the social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Fellow singer Lily Allen said: “It’s just beyond sad, there’s nothing else to say. She was such a lost soul, may she rest in peace.” Davina McCall, TV personality and presenter, said: “So very, very sad. A huge talent.” Tinchy Stryder, the musician, added: “My thoughts go out to her family and friends. RIP Amy Winehouse.” The singer Katy B said:

Fans have begun to lay flowers at the edge of the police cordon around the singer’s Camden home. A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said she saw the singer’s grief-stricken boyfriend on the ground outside the house. Two women then came “speeding” up in a black Mercedes and walked in and out of the house crying. They said they believed the singer was at home last night.
Ron Brand, who had known Winehouse for about three years, said: “It’s a tragic loss. She was beautiful, talented of course, and gentle. I loved her.” Mr Brand, father of comedian Russell Brand, said he believed she was no longer on drugs.

Sadly, Amy Winehouse joins a long list of singers and musicians who all died at the young age of 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and Jim Morrison of the Doors.
