Amy Winehouse -- Signs of Life When Help Arrived

7/23/2011 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Amy Winehouse death investigation tell TMZ ... paramedics found "signs of life" when they arrived Saturday afternoon, but she died before they could transport her.

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.

The truth is I am sad to hear of her passing. I had hoped that she could beat her addiction and explore the talent she so obviously had. But I guess it was not meant to be. I am sorry about her death, but I can't say that I am surprised. It seemed to me that she was trying to kill herself in some ways.

Chelsea Handler and Amy Winehouse are on the same train. Do you think she needs an intervention? Should Amy's family done what Britney's family did? morgainm.wordpress.com

Addiction is a disease and chronic. It is progressive. It won't reveal itself to you.It tells you that you that you aren't sick. If your friends and family are telling you to get help, get help. Listen to them.

are you the same person that defends lindsay about rehab. and thinks she is better off doing drugs and not being tested.

Have to say you will be surprised in the next few years get use to morning.
because the path that lindsay is taking is about the same.

except Amy had mad skills. she was famous for her own merits.

One of the 84 murdered children also displayed "Signs on life." The Daily Mail featured a picture of a little boy on his knees facing the shooter and begging for his life.

Amy? Not so much. My sympathy goes with the children.

This is a tragic loss of a very talented singer. Addiction, either drugs or alcohol or both, can be something that some people can not overcome. Sadly many of us saw this coming.

I am a recovering cocaine addict, I've been clean 17 months. Had I not been able to slay the monster, I know, I would not be here now.

May Amy Rest In Peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

I truly hope for your sake that addiction never touches your family. If it does, you'll understand the pain it causes.

One less junkie we have to watch stumble around while evryone else has to play by the rules.

She is exactly where we all knew she would end up.

Won't really be a shock when Charlie Sheen or Artle Lange off themselves...

What junkie is next?

....Tick-Tock

Loved her - was always amazed such a voice came out of this tiny little woman. But, I was also sad for whatever troubled her.

RON - let's hope the next junkie you watch stumbling around isn't one of your children or loved ones.

Addition is medical condition. Not a moral lapse or will power issue. Nor a character deformity. How long before governments (i.e., Portugal) treat it as such?

Heckling the dead addict is akin to making people circus freaks because they had horrific physical diseases. It is just not right.

I really doubt that if she still had signs of life, there would be a guy in a hazmat suit in the picture of them taking the body out of the house. Just sayin'
