The cause of Amy Winehouse’s death remains a mystery despite the return of a toxicology report revealing alcohol in her system at the time of her death.

Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, but alcohol was present, her family revealed.  It has not been determined whether the alcohol contributed to the cause of death, however.  Her initial autopsy was also inconclusive.

“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,” read a statement released today by family spokesman Chris Goodman, according to eonline.com.

“Results indicate that alcohol was present, but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” the statement said. “The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October.”
