Second Examination Confirms Amy Winehouse Died of Alcohol Poisoning
Upon examination by a second coroner, singer Amy Winehouse’s cause of death was ruled as an accidental alcohol poisoning, according to The Guardian.
Dr. Shirley Radcliffe completed the second inquest on Tuesday and confirmed the original ruling.
A second look was requested after it came to light that Suzanne Greenaway, the first coroner assigned to examine Winehouse, lacked the required qualifications for the job and had been appointed to the position by her husband.
Greenaway resigned a month after her ruling on Winehouse’s death.
Both examinations found that Winehouse had 416 milligrams of alcohol per deciliter in her blood. 350 milligrams is considered lethal.
Winehouse’s body was found in her London apartment by paramedics and Winehouse’s bodyguard, Andrew Morris on July 23, 2011. She was 27 years old.
