Police in London said Saturday night that Amy Winehouse, the troubled diva who had struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, has been found dead at her home in London. Police confirmed that a 27-year-old female was pronounced dead at the home in Camden Square in northern London. They said they were treating the death as unexplained. TMZ is reporting that Scotland Yard indicates there were no signs of foul play. An autopsy has been scheduled for tomorrow.
Winehouse matched her considerable vocal talents with a voracious appetite for drug, so her premature death really shouldn’t come as any surprise. It’s a terrible tragedy for her family and fans, but one even a disinterested outsider could see coming from a mile away. See more of Winehouse here and here (NSFW).
