Amy Winehouse, dead at 27

Singer found lifeless in her London flat

Amy Winehouse, the English singer-songwriter who was one of the most popular music artists of the ’00s, has been found dead in her London flat at age 27. Winehouse, whose drug and alcohol problems became major tabloid stories soon after she rose to fame, had recently canceled a planned European tour after her substance issues left her unable to perform at a concert. Paramedics were called to her home today and found that she was already dead. The police are inquiring into the circumstances of the death.
