Topic: Amy Winehouse

According to London Police An autopsy to determine what killed singer Amy Winehouse will not be scheduled before Monday morning, London’s Metropolitan Police said Sunday.

“Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death,” police said in a
statement. At this stage, the 27-year-old’s death “is being treated as
unexplained and there have been no arrests in connection with the incident,”
police said.

Police were called to Winehouse’s Camden Square apartment just after 4 p.m.
Saturday in response to report of “a woman found deceased,” police said.

The Police did not say who made the call to them and that Winehouse death is being treated as “Unexplained” and no arrest has been made which opens the door into other questions such as; was anyone with Winehouse?, did someone give her something she should not have had?,  did someone think Winehouse was more valuable to them dead than alive?.

When the police entered Winehouse apartment, what did they see for them to say in their statement,”there have been no arrests in connection with the incident.” Arrest? Incident?  Who? What? When? Why? and How?

Did the police see drugs and/or a sign of struggle?  Where was the body found in the apartment?  What condition was her body in? How long was she dead?

When the autopsy is announced, will it say Winehouse died of an overdose?  Will there be a cover-up to make it look as if Winehouse was doing drugs by herself?  Did Winehouse make a mistake or was she murdered?

I wish Winehouse and her boyfriend all the best and I want her to make sure she is 100% clean and sober for a few years before trying to have children.  I also pray that she and boyfriend have a lot of love to give to children and will make time for them in a loving, safe environment…
