Amy Winehouse

New Questions Surrounding Singer's Death

Amy Winehouse may not have died from alcohol poisoning ... this according to London officials who are launching a new inquest into the singer's death next month.

Authorities say ... the coroner who oversaw the autopsy when Winehouse died back in July 2011 did NOT have the proper prerequisites when she concluded the singer died from accidental alcohol poisoning. 

According to local reports, Assistant Deputy Suzanne Greenaway had been appointed to the job by her husband in 2009 -- despite the fact she did not have the required 5 years experience with the London Law Society.

FYI -- Greenaway's husband just resigned from his role as the coroner for inner north London earlier this month in the wake of the scandal.

Winehouse's family says they are NOT behind the push for a new investigation.

No offense, but dead is still dead. Amy Winehouse dabbled in many indulgences...and they killed her. Blame the hand (that belonged to Army) that put, placed or tilted the action which placed that indulgence into her body. Her death was a horrible waste because she had immense talent. It just wasn't enough to keep her happy and alive.

The death that was most shocking was that of Whitney Houston; a real icon. The deaths are similar. Too many ppl giving drugs et al... To fragile stars. RIP AMY!

I agree wish this could be left alone but what if Amy died from something else? What if the coroner missed something BIG? Hate for family to go thru more but I think doubling checking this coroners report a must.

Dang! If there's one iota of truth, it must be investigated, but I think it may cause more pain to her family. Such a beautiful and talented young woman. Such a shame to be taken so early.
