Several of Amy Winehouse’s belongings have gone missing, with the late singer’s father believing that someone from the family went and looted her London home. Among them are recordings, lyric books and personal letters.
After the death of the singer
, Mitch Winehouse, her father, came to her home to sort out the things she left behind.
Several bags of belongings were loaded into moving trucks and taken someplace else, but Mitch also recalled how much Amy loved her fans, so he gave them her clothes and some other trinkets to remember her by.
Now, Mitch has been telling friends that several recorded tracks, lyric books for her third album, a guitar and her letters are missing, a spy says for The Sun
The Winehouse family, including Amy’s boyfriend / reported fiancé Reg Traviss are now on holiday, with the spy saying they plan to return to London as soon as possible to find the culprit.
“Furious dad Mitch believes one of her acquaintances has taken copies of unreleased tracks, lyric books and letters,” the tab writes.
“And the ex-cabbie, 60, has vowed to root out the culprits when he returns from a family holiday taken to come to terms with his loss,” adds The Sun.
Apparently, Mitch is confident he will find out who is responsible for the missing items, since only about 20 people and police have had access to Amy’s London home since her death because it’s been declared a crime scene until a cause of death can be established.
“Other items Amy’s management can’t account for include one of her favorite guitars and lyrics scribbled for her third album,” the British tabloid further says.
As of now, only two lyric books have been reported missing to the police. Mitch reportedly wants to give the thief the chance to put everything back together before he files a complaint.
“This is such a sickening shock to the family. That someone would stoop so low. They can’t get their heads around it,” says a source close to the family.
“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,” adds the insider.
After her death, reports said Amy had material at least for one album
(and up to three new ones) ready for release.
