Gordon in the morning: Stealing from Amy

Given the turmoil in London over the last few days, a headline announcing

Amy Winehouse home is robbed
might seem to be part of the riot coverage.

But it isn't.

Actually, it's not even entirely clear that there has been any robbing:
PERSONAL belongings were stolen from Amy Winehouse's house in the days after her death, it emerged yesterday.

Furious dad Mitch believes one of her acquaintances has taken copies of unreleased tracks, lyric books and letters.
It all sounds a little vague - does anyone know for sure that anything is missing? Does anyone know for certain that if anything, if missing, has been removed by someone and not simply lost? Does anyone know, if anything has been removed, that it's been stolen and not merely put somewhere safe?

Even the finger being pointed at "acquaintances" turns out to be a bit shaky:
Around 20 people - including family, friends, security and police - have had access to the home since Amy died.
Clearly, something murky is going on. I don't think we know yet what manner of murkiness.
