It’s been a year and a half since Amy Winehouse passed away, and 16 months later there’s still some mystery surrounding her untimely death.
According to the AP, a request has been submitted to re-examine Amy Winehouse’s cause of death. The initial discrepancies stem from the resignation of Assistant Deputy Coroner, Suzanne Greenaway, who performed Amy’s initial autopsy.
Greenaway had been appointed an assistant deputy coroner in London in 2009 by her husband, Andrew Reid, the coroner for inner north London. But she resigned after authorities learned she had not been a registered U.K. lawyer for five years as required by the rules.
