Coroner Suzanne Greenway ruled it "death by misadventure," an apt -- though perhaps unintentionally insensitive -- description.
The Winehouse family, which initially claimed she'd succumbed to symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, released a statement as follows:
"It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away, it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time."
