Sordid details surrounding Amy Winehouse’s tragic death have emerged, with claims that she bought a cocktail of narcotics including cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine in her final hours.
Although police has not yet released the exact cause of her death, it is claimed she was seen buying drugs from a dealer in Camden just after 10:30pm on Friday, reports the Daily Mail.
A source told People's Magazine that she was seen buying substances, believed to be cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and ketamine in the hours leading up to her death.
She is also thought to have been drinking heavily, which may have been the trigger of a lethal concoction of drugs and alcohol.
The source told the newspaper: “Amy seemed determined to have a big one on Friday night.
“She was out in Camden on Friday evening, but seemed determined to carry on the party back at her flat.
“None of us know who was with her into the early hours of Saturday. But getting out of it was clearly her main priority of the night.”
Another source from one Camden pub told the tabloid that they had also seen Amy buying cocaine from a well-known dealer in the area.
Meanwhile, friends of the star told the Sunday Mirror that they believe she died from a “bad” ecstasy pill mixed with a large amount of alcohol.
Winehouse also suffered from emphysema, which is a disease of the lungs that causes shortness of breath.
One friend told the newspaper: “It was an ecstasy overdose. She could do cocaine until the cows come home. But this was obviously a dodgy pill.”
