  • A police officer leaves St. Pancras Coroner's Court following the second inquest into the death of singer Amy Winehouse.

After a second London autopsy, this time by a different coroner, Amy Winehouse’s death has again been officially blamed on alcohol.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “death by misadventure” is the term on the death certificate, but alcohol toxicity is the reason.

Winehouse’s blood alcohol content at the time of her death — more than five times the legal limit to drive — would be fatal to most large mammals.

The original coroner was called into question after it was learned that her credentials were not legal.

Winehouse died in July 2011 at the age of 27.
