0722_amy_EX4Our sources were not specific as to the exact nature of the "signs of life."

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.

I come from the same part of North London as Amy. It's called Southgate. She was 4 years older than me and I went to the same Junior School that she did although she had left when I started. It's called Ashmole.
Southgate isn't a huge town and she is one its most famous exports.
Everyone locally will be so affected by this and my grandparents still live on the same street that Amy grew up on although her parents don't live there any more. I've got no doubt people will visit their old house after this.
We'll miss you Amy and no matter what troubles you faced in your short life the people that grew up with you or grew up near you like I did will always be proud. RIP, Lauren xxxx

How about some new laws to bypass the existing laws making it ok for the media to hound people in a negative light. Media reaches millions there should be some accountability.

Amy Winehouse was a human being- not a soundboard for insults for her shortcomings.

Amy Winehouse was someone's daughter- may God have mercy on that this will never be your child's lifestyle.

Amy Winehouse is not a celebration party. "One less junkie in the world" F*** you to those who are relieved she is gone, the world needs more compassion, certainly not the treatment of Captain Obvious over there rejoicing that a human life is gone.

** Let he who is without sin cast the first stone **

Mercy and prayers to ANY parent who is forced the unbearable task of burying their own child.

I wish people would stop with the "27 club". Every website I visit - I see that in the comments ad nauseam - it is getting a little old. Next someone will bring up death in 3's - or something equally retarded.

I am sure there are tons of people who died at 28, too. Heath Ledger and Brandon Lee - died at 28. Groups of people die at every stage of life. No reason to go all conspiracy theorist on the issue.

But sheeple will keep spewing the stupidity of "club 27".

If there was a fit involved all bets are off as to the assumption this was an overdose. If she had latent epilepsy, and wasn't using, or dementia tremens, on account of maybe finally giving up booze (would have thought she'd be aware of that) it's quite possible this was even more tragic and inexplicable. She'd had fits before, which also can be a side affect of hard drug addiction and alcoholism. It's still a shame. The post-mortem won't including toxicology immediately, but will give an indication. Whatever. RIP Amy Winehouse.

Amy is now in the very special club of real blues men and women, and the only thing I feel bad about is that she did not record more albums. I know her soul would feel the same.
