"Death by misadventure": Official cause of Amy Winehouse's death raises more questions

It what seems like the world's most catch-all cause of death, Amy Winehouse's death at age 27 has been declared "death by misadventure" by a United Kingdom coroner.

There has been much speculation as to the cause of Winehouse's death. Although the singer had publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, the initial autopsy reports were inconclusive and found no traces of illegal drugs in the singer's system.

Some suggested that Winehouse may have died from alcohol withdrawals, following statements from her family that she'd successfully weaned herself off of drugs in the weeks before her death and was trying hard to quit drinking.

The official coroner's report paints a different story, saying that Winehouse died after drinking a "very large quantity of alcohol" — more than five times the legal driving limit.
