We can’t even begin to process this.
Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London apartment.
According to a press release from the Metropolitan Police:
“Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene. Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.”
This is so unbelievably devastating on so many levels. She truly was such a talent.
Our sincerest condolences go out to her family, friends, and loved ones during this impossibly difficult time.
May she R.I.P.
Scotland Yard has confirmed that there were no signs of foul play at Winehouse’s apartment, and that an autopsy has been scheduled to take place tomorrow to determine cause of death.
London authorities have released an official statement regarding Amy’s passing.
Superintendent Raj Kohli says:
“Next of kin have been informed, and I can confirm that officers are now satisfied that the deceased is Amy Winehouse. I am aware of reports suggesting this death is the result of a suspected drugs overdose, but I would like to re-emphasize that no post-mortem examination has yet taken place and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death.”
