Hip Hop-Raleigh NC- Carolina Exposed Multimedia Outlet reported the untimely death of an American Icon and Award winning singer, Whitney Houston. Her cause of death has now been made official. The coroner’s office has released the autopsy and toxicology results and as previously reported, the singer died of accidental drowning and there were drugs found in her system. The full report provides a few more details that were previously unreported.
The hotel room where Whitney Houston died contained signs of cocaine and its paraphernalia. Nearby, on the bathroom counter, investigators found a small spoon described by investigators as having a “crystal like substance” in it and in a drawer they discovered a white powdery substance. The dozen prescription drug bottles found in Houston’s suite of the Beverly Hilton Hotel led investigators to initially suspect she died of an overdose, but after recent examination and toxicology results they concluded she drowned accidentally.
It was also reported that Whitney Houston’s body was found on the living room floor by police (suggesting that whoever tried to save her brought her there from the bathroom). Prescription medication bottles were also in the hotel room.
It is evident that Whitney Houston was suffering with addiction up until the moment she died and it is grim reminder of how drugs and bad decisions will effect your life. People can point fingers at whoever they want, but at the end of the day, Whitney was responsible for her own actions.
Whitney Houston’s cause of death turned out to be what many people expected, despite her family’s claims that she was clean.
Toxicology results also showed Houston had marijuana, Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, and the allergy medication Benadryl in her system, but none of which are considered factors in her death.
The grim accounting of the room where Houston died and what investigators found provide a sad footnote to the singer’s life, showing the impact drugs took on her.
Houston, 48, had finished work on her return to acting by starring in a remake of the film “Sparkle,” which would also feature her rendition of the gospel classic “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.”
The singer had battled addiction for years, but friends and family have said she appeared committed to making a comeback in the months before her death.
“The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy,” Houston told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an infamous 2002 television interview with then-husband Bobby Brown by her side.
Brown has faced his own troubles since Whitney Houston’s death. He was arrested and charged last month with driving under the influence of alcohol in Los Angeles and faces a court date later this month.
