A coroner has ruled that Amy Winehouse died as the unintended result of drinking too much alcohol. According to pathology reports, Winehouse had consumed a "very large quantity of alcohol" and was more than five times over the legal drunk-driving limit in Britain at the time of her death. As a result, her passing has been ruled a "death by misadventure."
Winehouse, who struggled with alcoholism and drug abuse for much of her adult life, was found dead at her home in London on July 23rd. She was 27 years old.
