The news first broke out via Sunday Mirror’s Head of News, who turned to twitter making this statement:
“Police sources have confirmed that Amy Winehouse is dead. Found at her North London home at 3.54pm. Drink and drugs overdose suspected.” – Nick Buck

Amy Winehouse has had a troubled history with drugs and drinking problem, and with the added pressure of fame, her antics have been widely documented. Her recent tour was cancelled after she was unable to sing onstage.
