Amy Winehouse began binge drinking in 2008 after kicking a drug habit, Camden Square, London
. By summer 2011, she had fallen into a pattern of abstaining for a few weeks, and then relapsing. One such relapse led to her death by alcohol intoxication in the morning hours of 23 July 2011.
Winehouse’s bodyguard said that he arrived at her residence three days before her death and felt she was somewhat intoxicated. He observed moderate drinking over the next few days. He observed her “laughing, listening to music and watching TV at 2 am the day of her death”. According to the bodyguard, at 10 am he observed her lying on her bed and tried unsuccessfully to rouse her.
This did not raise much suspicion because she usually slept late after a night out. According to the bodyguard, shortly after 3 pm, he checked on her again and observed her lying in the same position as before, leading to a further check in which he concluded she was not breathing and had no pulse. He said he subsequently called emergency services. At 3:54 pm BST on 23 July 2011, two ambulances were called to Winehouse’s home in Camden, London. Winehouse was pronounced dead at the scene. Shortly afterwards, the Metropolitan Police confirmed that she had died.After her death was announced, media and camera crews appeared, as crowds gathered near Winehouse’s residence to pay their respects. Forensic investigators entered the flat as police cordoned off the street outside. Police recovered one small and two large bottles of vodka from her room. [wiki]
Following her death on July 23 last year, Amy Winehouse’s Camden home is finally put up on sale by her father Mitch for £2.7 million.
But the agent makes no mention Amy Winehouse, who moved into the house in April 2010, which her dad paid £1.8million for.
A spokesperson for Mitch Winehouse told MailOnline: ‘The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret. Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it. It was not practical to keep it empty while paying for its upkeep. It is a wonderful place and will be a happy family home for someone.’
