Papers relating to an inquest are sent to a random member of the public
Police have launched an investigation after a confidential report into the death of Amy Winehouse was accidentally sent to a member of the public.
Papers, which outlined the circumstances surrounding the late singer’s death, were supposed to have been sent to her family but they went to the wrong address.
The report was eventually handed into the police at a north London station and they are now looking into how the mix up happened, reports the Sunday Mirror.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said:
Police were informed that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address.
He added: “The material has since been handed in. An inquiry is under way to establish the full circumstances.”
Winehouse was found dead in her home in July. The cause of her death is still to be determined after a toxicology report found “no illegal substances” in her system.
Her father Mitch recently paid tribute to his daughter during a support slot for Matt Goss at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
