Police -- Don't Call Amy's Death an Overdose Yet

7/23/2011 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Police in London released their first official statement that acknowledges the death of Amy Winehouse -- but warned that's too soon to say she overdosed on drugs.

In a statement, London Police Superintendent Raj Kohli said, "Next of kin have been informed, and I can confirm that officers are now satisfied that the deceased is Amy Winehouse."

As for the cause of death, and speculation that Amy -- who had battled drug and alcohol problems for years -- may have OD'ed, Kohli said, "
I am aware of reports suggesting this death is the result of a suspected drugs overdose, but I would like to re-emphasize that no post-mortem examination has yet taken place and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death."

Unfortunatly, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck its a duck... While police wont confirm it yet, one can pretty much assume she OD... Its sad and tragic, but no one is to blame but herself.. May she find peace now without the addiction...

Just like Cory Haim it was only a question of when they would die and no one would be surprised about it.

Yeah.. And I'm sure that needle that was more than likely by her body was full of insulin and the real cause of death was diabetes.
