On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."

Story still developing.

Even though it was kind of expected, it is sad since she was so young.And unfortunately nothing like any of the others who died too young like Joplin, Hendrix, Morrison, and Lennon.  Those deaths were tragic due to greatness ended far too early.  Who knows where Winehouse would have ended up if she had cleaned up and actually applied herself to her art.
