Many people are speculating how Amy may have died. According to unnamed friends, Amy was drinking heavily the night before her death, and may have died after taking a bad ecstasy pill.

TMZ reported that Winehouse’s bodyguard is the one who found her body. Family friend Chris Goodman explained, “She was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep and when he went to wake her he found she wasn’t breathing. He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed.”

    • Police are treating the death as unexplained. An autopsy will be performed this week.
    • Amy’s on-again off-again boyfriend, Reg Traviss was spotted outside Amy’s apartment after her death. British tabloids reported that Amy was devastated after Reg broke up with her — reportedly because her addiction was so overpowering.
