Amy Winehouse May Not Have Died From Alcohol Poisoning, London Officials Say

Dec 17, 2012 08:35 AM

amywinehouse230pic.jpgAmy Winehouse's death may not have been as a result of alcohol poisoning, London officials are reporting.

A new investigation is suggesting that the coroner, who claimed Winehouse died back in July 2011 due to alcohol-related issues, did not have the proper prerequisites.

The report adds that the Assistant Deputy Suzanne Greenaway was appointed to her position in 2009 by her husband.

Greenaway also reportedly didn't have the required five years experience by the London Law Society.

Greenaway's husband has since resigned from his role as coroner for inner north London.

Mitch also becomes the administrator of her estate in the process while her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is not due to receive any portion of her earnings according to probate documents.

Winehouse, who died in July 2011 due to alcohol poisoning, was worth an estimated $10 million due in large part to her hit album Back To Black, which sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

The Winehouse family released the following statement:

    "It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away, it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time."

The "Rehab" singer was found dead in her London home on July 23. She was 27 years old.

The family adds, "It underlines how important our work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation is to us, to help as many young people and children as we can in her name."

Amy Winehouse's Dad Talks Late Singer's Spirit With Anderson Cooper

If his premiere episode is any indication, Anderson Cooper is going to do a-okay with his new daytime talk show Anderson.

Mixing his serious CNN persona with a much needed dose of humor, the always likeable Anderson came off as both sincere and sympathetic in his first episode as he spoke to Amy Winehouse's family.

In an intimate but spooky moment, Amy's father Mitch Winehouse discussed how he still feels Amy's presence, as he did while giving her eulogy at her funeral this past July. In the video above, Mitch explains that a black butterfly landed on Kelly Osbourne's shoulder during the ceremony, and the whole family feels it was Amy's spirit. He told Anderson:

    "There was a murmur in the congregation, and I thought maybe paparazzi had gotten in... Apparently it was like a bat -- really the biggest black butterfly you could ever imagine. And they're shy creatures, they don't go where people are. It came in and ot circled around my friend who had just previously lost his wife. It settled on [Kelly's] shoulder. It then flew around me -- I never noticed it -- and then went towards Amy's coffin. And there were a lot of things over the next few days about butterflies."

Amy's parents were extremely well-composed during the interview, and Anderson came off as likable as we'd expect, especially considering the tough subject of Winehouse's death.
