Singer Amy Winehouse found dead in London apartmentJuly 24th, 2011 - 1:26 am ICT by BNO News
LONDON (BNO WIRE) — British singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in north London, police confirmed on Saturday.
Sky News reported that the 27-year-old singer was found dead by the emergency services. The London Ambulance Service was called to her home in Camden just after 4 p.m., but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
“On arrival, officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene,” a police statement said. Her death was reportedly being treated as ‘unexplained’ and inquiries are continuing into the circumstances, it added.
Her final show was in Belgrade in June where she was jeered by fans after a disastrous performance. The Grammy-winning singer had appeared briefly on stage with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield on Wednesday night at the iTunes festival.
Last month, Winehouse cancelled all scheduled performances after a series of erratic public appearances. The ‘Rehab’ singer had a long history of substance abuse throughout her career.
