Amy Winehouse's Father Believes She Died Of Detox Seizure

Amy Winehouse's father believes his daughter died after suffering a seizure caused by alcohol detoxification.

"Everything Amy did, she did to excess," Winehouse's parents tells Anderson Cooper on his new show 'Anderson', which debuts Monday.

"She drank to excess and did detox to excess."

Mitch says the singer had suffered seizures where she would lose consciousness because of the withdrawal.

"She had a series of seizures brought on by this binge drinking and then stopping to drink."

"I think it's what the doctor said, I think she had a seizure and this was the time when there was no one there to rescue her,"

"She was prescribed Librium, which is a normal drug that is given to people who are detoxing and it kind of decreases the chances of having seizures."

"And she was continuing to take one of those pills everyday."

"But when she wasn't drinking, she was absolutely on top of the world."

"I've been banging on about the fact that she hasn't taken drugs in three years."

"Everyone thought I was in denial, I wasn't in denial, she hadn't taken drugs. She'd been clean for round about three years."

"Her problem was alcohol, the last few years of her life. You might argue, what's the difference?," he continues. "The difference is that what happened to Amy wasn't anything to do with drugs."

"It might be that drugs took its toll in the early years, but there were no drugs in her system at all."
