Famous people who died too soon (PHOTOS) - Amy Winehouse date of, cause of death coroner resigned. Amy Winehouse died at the young age of 27. She was found alone in her bed. Initial toxicology reports showed Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her body when she died.

Family spokesman Chris Goodman said although "alcohol was present, ... toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death."

Winehouse was 27 years old when she was found dead in her London home July 23.

At her funeral, her father Mitch said the singer had been drug-free for years before her death but was struggling with alcohol addiction, MTV.com reported.

Suzanne Greenaway, the London coroner who handled the inquest into singer Amy Winehouse's death, has resigned, officials said.

Greenaway ruled Winehouse, 27, died from accidental alcohol poisoning and returned a verdict of misadventure at her inquest.

Camden Council told the BBC Greenaway had been appointed "in error" to the post by her husband Andrew Reid, the coroner for inner north London. His actions are being investigated by the Office for Judicial Complaints.

Greenaway resigned this week after it was made public she didn't meet the requirement of practicing as a lawyer in the United Kingdom for five years, even though she had qualified as an attorney in Australia since 1999.

Reid told the British broadcaster he is "confident that all of the inquests handled were done so correctly," but apologized "if this matter causes distress to the families and friends of the deceased."

"The Winehouse family is taking advice on the implications of this and will decide if any further discussion with the authorities is needed," the Winehouse family said in a statement issued to the BBC. Go here for photos. (c) tPC (c) UPI
