OTRC: Amy Winehouse's death: No suspicious circumstances

A coroner's official said on Monday that there were no suspicious circumstances in the death of singer Amy Winehouse.

The 27-year-old "Rehab" singer was found dead Saturday at her home in Camden Square in northern London.

Winehouse's cause of death is being treated as "unexplained," and police had previously said speculation that she died from a drug overdose is "inappropriate."

Her family released a statement Sunday saying, "Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives."

Meantime, Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who is in jail, was quoted by The Sun as saying he is "beyond inconsolable" about Winehouse's death and that his "tears won't dry."

"Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can't believe she's dead," Fielder-Civil reportedly said.

Winehouse married Fielder-Civil in May 2007, but later that year, he was arrested for attacking a pub manager a year before. The singer tried to stand by Fielder-Civil while he was behind bars, but they divorced in 2009.

Winehouse has struggled publicly with drug and alcohol abuse. Throughout the past few years, Winehouse appeared drunk at concerts, engaged in violent club confrontations and gradually lost weight. She left rehab earlier last month for alcohol addiction, a week after checking herself in.

The singer shot to fame with her 2006 album, "Back to Black," which earned her five Grammy Awards, including record and song of the year for "Rehab."
