Winehouse: What caused her death?

The Associated Press is reporting that singer Amy Winehouse, discovered dead at 27, had no illegal drugs in her system when she died.

Now the focus is on the alcohol that might have contributed to her death. But her father, Mitch Winehouse, said that the singer had said to him, "'Dad I've had enough of drinking, I can't stand the look on your and the family's faces anymore.'"

There is a chance they'll never figure out what killed her. I have known, and heard about, several younger folks who died and no cause was ever discovered, including the boyfriend of a college friend who died one night in his sleep. No drugs. No drinking.
