(Newser) – The depressing details of Amy Winehouse's last days and hours continue to emerge, with the latest claims including reports that she bought cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, and ketamine late Friday night. Sources also say she was drinking heavily at the same time, and her emphysema could also have played a role. "None of us know who was with her into the early hours of Saturday," one tells the Daily Mail. "But getting out of it was clearly her main priority of the night."

"It was an ecstasy overdose," says another. "She could do cocaine until the cows come home. But this was obviously a dodgy pill." But one neighbor says Winehouse had been looking "normal" and didn't go out much, and another says she looked "happy and healthy" when spotted six months ago. Could a recent break-up have started her downward spiral? She was reportedly "inconsolable" after on-off boyfriend Reg Traviss dumped her last month, just before she checked into a rehab clinic.
