Published Aug 11, 2011An undetermined amount of items have reportedly been looted from the home of deceased pop star Amy Winehouse. Reports surfaced yesterday (August 10) that the singer's home had been ransacked, with mementos allegedly including unreleased songs, lyric books and a guitar.
According to the UK's Sun newspaper, Winehouse's father Mitch believes an acquaintance is the culprit who made away with the cherished items. For the record, he's committed to finding the individual.
"This is such a sickening shock to the family. That someone would stoop so low. They can't get their heads around it," an unnamed member of Winehouse's circle told the publication. "Mitch is livid. The family, record label and management are months away from deciding what to do with any unreleased music."
It's unclear what state the alleged unreleased tracks were in. At present, the only confirmed missing items are two books of lyrics. Winehouse's father, who had given away clothes to fans outside of the fallen performer's home, is apparently just looking to get the items back.
"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," the source said.
