The troubled singer was found in her London apartment.
Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse was found dead at 4 p.m. on July 23 in her London apartment.
She had checked into the Priory Clinic, a treatment facility in London, this past May. And although it was never confirmed what she was seeking treatment for, the clinic is known for dealing with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as psychiatric conditions.

RadarOnline.com reports an autopsy will take place on July 24 or July 25.
The news of her passing is devastating, but unfortunately, not the first we’ve heard of the singer’s troubled life. She had a highly publicized — and extremely tumultuous — relationship with music video producer Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married in May 2007.
The couple quickly became the subject of controversy, with news of their drug use dominating headlines, and Amy even admitted that she often attacked Blake after having too much to drink. They were photographed bleeding in public in Aug. 2007, but it was later determined that Amy’s injuries had been self-inflicted. The two divorced in July 2009.
An irrefutably talented musician, Amy’s 2003 debut album, Frank, became certified triple-platinum after selling more than 900,000 copies in the UK. But it was her 2006 follow-up album, Back to Black, that made her a household name in the United States — and earned her five Grammy Awards, including Best Pop Vocal Album. Her single, “Rehab,” won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Song of the Year and Record of the Year, while Amy took home the Best New Artist award herself.
But rather than simply mourn this tragic loss, let’s choose to also celebrate the incredible talent Amy shared with us all during her brief time in this world. Ladies and gentlemen, “Rehab”:
