No Drugs in Amy Winehouse

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The mystery surrounding the death of Amy Winehouse deepened on Tuesday as her family said that toxicology tests had found no illegal substances in her system. The late retro-soul singer had alcohol in her system -- but no illegal substances -- when she died at 27 in her Camden, north London home last month, according to toxicology results just released. "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," 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 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." Some reports had suggested her cause of death could have been as a result of quitting alcohol cold turkey after years of heavy drinking, causing her body a shock or seizure. Beyond her drinking, Ms. Winehouse seemed to be in fragile health. In 2008, her family said she had received a diagnosis of early signs of emphysema and an irregular heartbeat. The investigation has been adjourned until Oct. 26.
