Personal items including a book containing lyrics for her upcoming third album and Amy Winehouse’s favourite guitar are thought to have been stolen from the singer’s home in the days after her untimely death on July 23rd.

It is thought that only a handful of people, some 20 individuals, have had access to the Rehab singer’s home in Camden North London since she was found dead at the property at the end of last month. Those who have been inside the property include police, friends and family of the star.

A source told the press that the family are “sick with shock” after discovering the disappearance of the items which were so personal to the singer. Officially the police have registered the theft of two books containing lyrics written by the 27-year-old before her death, believed to have been intended for use on her new album. Reports suggest other property is also missing including a much loved guitar belonging to Amy, and also unreleased tracks and letters.

Amy’s family are away on holiday as they try to come to terms with their loss. It’s been reported that Amy’s father, former cabbie Mitch, is planning to give the person responsible for removing the items from her home the chance to do the right thing and return the property. Mitch and Amy’s on/off boyfriend Reg Travis, who has joined the family on holiday, are due to compile an inventory of items in the late singer’s home when they return from their break.
