Singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Camden home yesterday. Police are treating Amy Winehouse's death as unexplained, however, some British newspapers report that the death followed an alcohol and drugs binge. Amy had repeatedly battled drug and alcohol addiction unsuccessfully. Her Camden neighbours reported cries from her home at around 3:30pm with police and paramedics arriving shortly. She was found to be "beyond help" and her body was brought out at 8:45pm and taken to a private ambulance.
It was also reported that two days ago neighbours saw her arrive in a cab with Big Brother star Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace when she collapsed and had to be carried inside.
