Amy's house is robbed

Amy Winehouse's family are furious after thieves broke into the tragic singer's house last week, stealing songbooks with songs meant for Amy's third album, her guitar, and personal letters. In the aftermath of Winehouse's death, amidst the confusion, many people were allowed to walk through the house; fans, police and friends, making it almost impossible to work out who has stolen her work. Mitch has appealed for the culprits to 'do the right thing' and return the mementos.

A source close to the family told The Sun, 'This is such a sickening shock to the family. That someone would stoop so low. They can't get their heads around it. Mitch is livid. The family, record label and management are months away from deciding what to do with any unreleased music. For that to be taken out of their hands is horrible. Mitch is willing to give whoever has stolen the items a chance to do the right thing and put them back so it doesn't have to get messy.'

Before her untimely death on 27th July, Amy had recorded a duet with crooner Tony Bennett, which will now be released, with profits going towards the Winehouse Foundation. The foundation was established by Amy's family, with the aim of giving help to those struggling with addiction. Amy's fans have rushed to buy her music in recent weeks, the singer's two albums, 'Frank' and 'Back to Black' have shot up the charts, with Back to Black taking the top spot. More tribute and live albums are likely to follow, as her record label attempt to make the most of the surprisingly small body of work that Amy left.
