    You know who got all the info on the death of Amy Winehouse?

    A London resident who, as far as anybody can tell, has no connection to the late singer.

    Police in the city are now investigating how a report containing confidential information on the singer's death got into the hands of a random stranger instead of Winehouse's family.

    At least this stranger seems to have been an honest one: The material was turned in to a London police station.

    So how did it happen?

    A spokesman for the Metropolitan police explained the mix-up, saying that the paperwork was delivered to the wrong address, per The Guardian.

    "Police were informed on Friday, Oct. 21, that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address," the spokesman said. "On Friday evening, material was handed in at a north London police station. Inquiries are now under way to establish the full circumstances of this matter."

    The "Rehab" singer was found dead in her Camden home on July 23 and toxicology tests had confirmed that no drugs were found in her system at the time of her death, but that alcohol was.

    "Results indicate that alcohol was present, but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death," the Winehouse family had said in a statement.

    An inquest into the singer's death is due to reopen this Wednesday after the initial postmortem exam proved inconclusive.

    In September, Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, launched the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which provides help to young kids with addiction issues.
