After weeks of speculation and no official cause of death for the late British crooner Amy Winehouse, the toxicology report has finally been released with some shocking results – she did NOT die of a drug overdose!

“No illegal substances” were found in her system, the report shows. There was alcohol present, but it has been undetermined whether or not it played a roll in the young singer’s death.

Amy Winehouse joined the ill-fated “27 Club” along with other musicians who passed before their time at the age of 27 along with Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and others, a month ago. It was widely speculated that drugs played a part in her death due to her widely publicized battle with substance abuse and erratic behavior, but it looks like that’s not the case. Even a drug dealer came forward claiming that he sold the singer drugs the night of her death, but she apparently didn’t get a chance to take them.

Her family made the statement that no drugs were found during the test, as it has not yet been released to the public. They thanked the police for their efforts investigating her death, and are awaiting an October investigation into other potential causes of her death.

At her funeral, her father told mourners that she had not used drugs in years, though she was still struggling with alcohol abuse. According to her father, she seemed the happiest and healthiest she had ever been in the weeks leading up to her death.

So what did kill Amy Winehouse if illegal drugs played no part? Her family is waiting for the same answers. The fact that she had no illegal drugs in her system does not rule out the possibility that she had combined alcohol and some legal medications. It also could be that the frail singer’s body had just had enough, after years of being battered and abused, both mentally and physically. It’s almost sad in a way that she didn’t OD. Maybe she really was finally trying to get her life back on track.
