Drugs Ruled Out in Amy Winehouse's Cause of Death

To the surprise of an awful lot of people, it turns out that no illegal substances were found in Amy Winehouse's body.

Furthermore, a drug overdose was not the cause of Winehouse's unexpected death. However, reports mentioned that alcohol was present in her system, but it is still unclear whether or not it played a role in her death.

Her cause of death is still unclear. A full toxicology report will be wrapped up in late October.

Drugs and alcohol were the first things that came to a lot of people's minds when news of Amy's death broke. Considering that she had no drugs in her body, I must say that I'm proud of her-- not that it changes the tragic events of her passing.
