How Did Amy Winehouse Die? Amy Winehouse most likely died from her lifestyle and her battle with drug and alcohol addiction. The singer was found dead in her home in London on July 23, 2011. She was 27 years old. London Police said they weren’t immediately sure of the cause of death.
Amy Winehouse was widely known for her drug and alcohol addictions and her “bad girl” image. Winehouse had to cancel her recent European tour after being booed offstage when she was too out of it to put on a good show. Her death was not a shock to many people, including many celebrities who were well aware of her addictions. While the official answer to the question of how did Amy Winehouse die may not be known for a few days or weeks, I think many people already have a pretty good idea that it was her lifestyle and addictions that eventually lead to her death.
