New Winehouse death inquest gets same result

A new investigation into the death of singer Amy Winehouse found that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning, authorities in the London borough of Camden announced Tuesday. It's the same result as the original investigation, but the earlier one had to be thrown out because the coroner did not have the right qualifications.

Winehouse died at the age of 27 on July 23, 2011.

    Alcohol poisoning. Show me one person in history that died of marijuana poisoning, and we still arrest users here in the land of the free

      no, it's more like saying that getting the munchies and eating pizza is better than drowing in your own vomit due to alcohol poisoning...

    In a few years they'll dig her up again, just to be sure. She's becoming Generalisimo Francisco Franco.

    They tried to make her go to rehab, she said no, no, no, kept on with her dirty living and wound up dead. Sad, but straightforward.
