The July 22 passing of Amy Winehouse was ruled “death by misadventure” by British coroner Suzanne Greenaway on Wednesday. Winehouse, 27, died as a result of drinking too much alcohol, Greenaway said.
“She had consumed sufficient alcohol… and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death,” Greenaway said.
A pathologist reported that an autopsy performed on the “Rehab” singer revealed that her blood-alcohol level (416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood) was 4.5 times over the legal drunk-driving limit.
Her family — parents Mitch and Janis and borther Alex — were in attendance when the toxicology results were announced.
