According to the Associated Press, a British coroner has ruled that Amy Winehouse’s tragic death last July was the result of accidental alcohol poisoning. Winehouse’s blood alcohol level at the time of her death was more than five times above the legal limit, and police detectives said they found empty bottles of vodka scattered around her bedroom. “The unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels (of alcohol) was her sudden and unexpected death,” explained Coroner Suzanne Greenaway.
