SF learns: Amy Winehouse family reveals what killed her (photos video)
LONDON, England — Here in San Francisco, residents following the tragic death of Amy Winehouse are learning what may have happened to her.
Amy Winehouse’s family has told press that booze didn’t kill the singer: They say it was the lack of alcohol that did, according to Newser.com
“It was very tragic that she died at such a young age. She had such a wonderful voice,” says San Francisco resident Betty Michael. “She will be greatly missed.”
Sources from the Winehouse family have told the UK’s Sun newspaper that Amy stopped drinking much too quickly and that her body went into shock because of it.
According to newser.com, she had been told by doctors to quit drinking gradually, but instead she went cold turkey three weeks before she died. “Abstinence gave her body such a fright they thought it was eventually the cause of her death,” one source tells Newser.
The Sun newspaper in the UK has told its readers that Winehouse may have actually fallen off the wagon three days before her death.
They report that one source saw her drinking gin and Red Bull at a music festival in London.
However, Amy Winehouse’s mother and her boyfriend are telling press that they saw Winehouse the day before she died and don’t believe she had been drinking at all.
The coroner’s report on Amy Winehouse’s death was inconclusive.
