It’s being reported that Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment earlier today.
The “Back to Black” singer’s body was discovered at around 4 PM UK time (11 AM EST), and her death is currently unexplained.
Winehouse’s name wasn’t specifically mentioned in a statement from the Metropolitan Police, which read:
“Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene. Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.”
Winehouse’s sudden death comes just one month after the Grammy award winning singer canceled her European tour following a performance in Serbia where she seemed to be completely “out of it.”
Amy Winehouse was just 27 years old.
