Whitney Houston Cocaine in System At Time of Death
TMZ ^ | 3/22/12 | Staff

Posted on 03/22/2012 2:41:57 PM PDT by mgstarr

Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system when she died -- this according to the L.A. County Coroner.

The L.A. County Coroner has just released the singer's official cause of death -- accidental drowning ... but the report also notes heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors to Whitney's demise.

A source connected to the investigation tells us it is "very possible" Whitney had a heart attack that caused her to lose consciousness and drown. The heart attack may have been triggered by hardening of the arteries as a result of cocaine use.

And in a totally unrelated story.
L.A. city council passes a resolution urging radio stations to curb racist and sexist comments after KFI 640 talk radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou had recently drawn criticism for referring to the late pop singer Whitney Houston as a “crack ho” in February in the wake of her untimely death.

Oh, goody. Now her insurance will have to pay because it was an accidental drowning and not from an overdose and binge of dope. Good. I was worried that Bobby Brown would not have enough dope money.

Cut her some slack.

At least she wasn’t slutting around Washington looking for free coke.

Another “victim” of the left’s drug culture. They so try to claim the higher ground yet the Woodstockies have contributed to millions of ruined lives and families.

No it wasn’t - they said she might have had a heart attack before. The autopsy said there wasn’t enough water in the lungs to cause a drowning. So they ordered these tests.

I don’t think bobby was her beneficiary. That is, if she had insurance.

Whitney was a coke-head long before she ever met Bobby Brown.

obviously her family and close friends disagree with your assessment, since they asked Bobby to leave her furneral.

Oh I’m sure there are a lot of reasons they would ban Bobby from the funeral, but introducing her to cocaine wasn’t one of them.

I owe you an apology. You are right...The L.A. County Coroner has just released the singer's official cause of death -- accidental drowning.

Don't know how I missed that.

Why do I get the feeling that if she wasn't famous the Coroner's findings would be different.

I get that feeling, also. Her first autopsy said not enough water in the lungs to produce a drowning. Like she died of ‘whatever’ first and then went under.

“Why do I get the feeling that if she wasn’t famous the Coroner’s findings would be different.”

The causes of death are accidental, natural, homicide, suicide and unknown. The death was accidental because they didn’t find evidence of homicide or a suicide. The difference between the two is, did she intend to die? Probably not since she was habitually using cocaine. Taking a bath while doing so is stupid but doesn’t change the cause.
