According to our sources, law enforcement "is operating under the suspicion" this an overdose, although police will not say on the record it's an overdose until the first postmortem exam Sunday morning.

As TMZ first reported, police on the scene determined there were no signs of foul play and there is nothing suspicious about the death.

It's sad that this incredible talent is gone at the age of 27, but this type of end was predicted years ago.

Everyone saw this coming. And as always, hangers on, collections of douchebags and wannabes will give the "star" anything they want, in order to keep the cashcow going. That aside, she knew she was a junkie and did little to help herself. May you find peace elsewhere.

There's a problem here    

Even on the way out the body will continue to breathe. Cheyne-Stokes or sometimes it's called agonal breathing. Breathing is a physical reflex and the body will keep doing it for a while before it gets the message that it's not worth the effort. Even if there were signs of life to a trained medical person it was probably more like signs of impending death. They can go for quite some time before the whole thing is over, but it's gonna be over.

Celebrities Suck    

for some reason I believe Amy's heart just gave up. She probably had a heart attack. She was abusing drugs, and drugs like cocaine can cause heart attacks in the long run.

Not sure why so many are comparing Amy to Janis Joplin. Amy sings easy jazz type songs, where Joplin flew all over the place singing at the top of her lungs. If Winehouse tried to hit a harsh note she would just bail on it while Janis Joplin would cough up a lung to transmit that note to her fans.

It's so sad that people would be so cold hearted to disrespect such a true talent, addiction or not people think that they are immune to addiction, but this disease strikes or poor, famous or not, but all judgment aside a person lost their life, Amy was someone's daughter and people should have more respect for the deceased, not bad mouthing and voicing their ignorant opinions. May she now be at peace.

I heard just now on E about Amys death how tragic:{ My heartfelt prayers go out to her family and friends. To all of you that are putting Amy down shame on you! Dont ever tell me that you dont know anyone personally that has had or has demons instead of condeming maybe you should reach out to them and love them for as long as you can before a tragic event like this happens or has happened to them.
