A report which looked into the circumstances surrounding Amy Winehouse’s tragic death earlier this year might have been sent to the wrong address.
Amy was found dead in her flat on July 23rd 2011. Despite her past battles with drugs and alcohol, Amy seemed to be making an attempt to clean herself up for new boyfriend Reg, and her death came as a surprise to many.
A post mortem was inconclusive, and toxicology reports took months to come backÂ—keeping her many worldwide fans wondering what killed the singer.
Now Metropolitan Police have revealed that a dossier put together with all of the known information about her death went missing on its way to Amy’s family and was handed in to a London police station.
Amy’s family have laid low since her funeral, with boyfriend Reg Travis giving an interview recently explaining that dedicating himself to his work was helping, and Amy’s dad Mitch concentrating on setting up a foundation in Amy’s name.
It’s thought that the UK X Factor might be planning a Winehouse themed week, where all the contestants sing her hit songs. It’s also been revealed that Mitch is looking at Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, who has recently checked into rehab, to be the face of The Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Still, news that a member of the public got to read through the report first is sure to hurt her family, who have maintained that Amy was clean and died from the risks of withdrawing completely, rather than slow, controlled withdrawal.
An inquest into the singer’s death was opened and closed in July, and another will take place this week, now that toxicology results are back. Hopefully this will answer some of the questions around the death, and let Amy’s legend continue to grow.
