Tony Azzopardi says he has already spoken to police investigating the death of the “Back to Black” star on July 23. He is due to be interviewed by police again today.
Azzopardi says he is only speaking up because he wants the Winehouse family to “know the truth about what happened.”
As a drug fixer, Azzopardi should be someone who intervenes with authorities for a person in trouble, like a drug addict. This is usually done for a fee and perhaps using underhand or illegal methods.
He was introduced to the 27-year-old singer by her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
He said that on the night before Amy Winehouse died they had bumped into each other. Instead of helping her withstand her cravings, he claims to have called a local dealer. That apparently led to Winehouse purchasing half an ounce each of crack cocaine and heroin in the early hours of July 23.
Azzopardi also claimed that the star’s car dropped him off in Archway, North London before she returned to her Camden home. He and his solicitor, Tim Bittlestone have attended Kentish Town police station to make a statement to this effect and will return today to continue with police questions.
Police reported that no drugs were found at Amy Winehouse’s house, where her body was discovered, on the day of her death. An autopsy has so far failed to establish how she died. Toxicology results are expected in the following weeks.
However, at Amy Winehouse’s funeral, her father Mitch said that his daughter was not drinking or taking drugs. He told mourners that the star was the “happiest she has been for years.”
The mystery of Amy Winehouse’s death is yet to be solved.
