In London, according to the Los Angeles Times, a coroner’s inquest found that Amy Winehouse’s death was “death by misadventure.” The singer, who passed in July 2011, was found with too much alcohol in her system, specifically 4.5 times over the legal limit. Coroner Suzanne Greenway reported that Amy Winehouse “had consumed sufficient alcohol at 416 mg per decilitre (of blood) and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death.”
