Whitney Houston's body ravaged by scars, cuts and burns, autopsy reveals
NY Post ^ | 4/8/12 | THE SUN/NEWSCORE

Posted on 04/08/2012 2:38:38 PM PDT by jimbo123

Whitney Houston's body was ravaged by scars, cuts and burns when she died, autopsy details showed.

Years of drug and alcohol abuse had left the "Bodyguard" star with a damaged heart and liver, a hole in her nose and 11 front teeth missing.

She also had a needle mark on one arm and was high on a cocktail of nine drugs when she died in a hotel bath in Los Angeles on Feb. 11, 2012.

And we are surprised.... why?

She climbed into a 160-degF "bath" and drowned. People who are awake and coherent would immediately jump out. She didn't even notice.

I was a fan of hers when she was a good singer and a beautiful woman. She just fell apart.... nothing left.

It appears she had just done some lines of cocaine in the bathroom, and then from a standing position passed out and FELL into a tub filled with scalding water, but was too intoxicated from everything to get herself out. She fell FACE DOWN into the tub.

She didn’t climb in. There were contusions and bruising elements that show she HIT hte tub from a standing position so she must have fainted and fallen in. She was found face down.

BTW, if you read the article carefully, some of the "scars" are from operations and breast implants, and some of the burns and skin problems were from the last bath and resuscitation efforts. Those don't count against her "deadly lifestyle".

Nonetheless, she destroyed herself with drugs and abuse. Such a sad waste of beauty and talent.

Even with nothing but hot water it shouldn’t get that hot, least it doesn’t at home.

There is a profound lesson to be learned from her death;

Druggies should take showers, not baths.

I have never been in a hotel where you could even *GET* water that hot. If she hadn’t fallen face first, I bet they would be suing the hotel for water too hot.

I promise, CPR is very traumatic to the body. More so when its first responders in a bathroom and there are indications of overdose. The body gets banged around like you wouldnt believe, jerking it out of the tub, hammering away on her chest, and injections of all kinds of stuff to get her heart going and to counteract whatever drug shes taken. Intubation hurts her throat and and the use of a defibrillator burns her if enough shocks are administered.

And none if this works 90 percent of the time in witnessed full arrest.

Yet she made more money then you will ever see in your life time.

Why don't you grant a departed, confused soul the benefit of the doubt?

I know you're perfect and no one can live up to your benevolence and absolute Grace, but this is Easter after all ;)

face down in scalding hot water.

Where were her family and friends when she was doing all these drugs that day? Were they doing drugs with her?

She fell short just like the rest of us just more covered than you and I will have in the news.

For all of us as sinner’s to cast this stone? So be it, I won’t be part of this.

Today on Easter, our Lord gave it all for these sins, came back and had a promise. From everything I read about Houston she is with the Lord.

I agree. I’ve never seen the inherent value of doing this, regardless of whether someone likes/admires/agrees with, etc.
the deceased or not.

What does it add that’s in any way “good?”

Was’t she virtually broke at the time of her death? Even if she wasn’t, what good would the money do her now?

While I agree the “carnivalesque” atmosphere I’ve seen on many of these death-articles is uncalled for, it’s also inappropriate to whitewash the foolish behavior that led to the demise.

You’re the one who brought wealth into the discussion.

What did you mean when you mentioned that Ms Houston “...made more money then you will ever see in your life time.”

To paraphrase someone far superior to myself, where you store your treasure you will find your heart.

Do you think Ms Houston had treasure in Heaven? Did she die a noble death like that of SSG Chris Brown?

You wouldn’t know about SSG Brown, Ron. You likely never traveled in the same circles.

Who the heck are you to tell somebody to “hijack” another thread. Maybe you wish to worship people like this but others do not.

The point is she is responsible for the choices she made. It has nothing to do with being perfect. You are the one who made the fact that she made a lot of money your first point.

It is sad what she did to herself, her family and her friends but that doesn't mean she is above being criticized.

Easy there tiger. I didn't realize you were such a disco fan. I'm new here so I didn't expect to find a digital vigil on a thread titled “Whitney Houston's body ravaged by scars, cuts and burns, autopsy reveals.”

The fact is a (presumably) Conservative Governor ordered flags to be flown at half-staff for a pop singer/diva who died as a result of long term damage caused by drug addiction.

If you stop and think about it for a little while, you might begin to understand why this might chaff a retired Sergeant's ass just a bit.

On that note, I leave you and the other fellows who dig singing divas and disco to celebrate your fallen heroes accomplishments.

It was a good point in my opinion. The governor did fly flags at half mast in her honor. Has that man ever done that for fallen soldiers? I get the newbies point quite well.

The point is, she for one did make a lot of money, hence she mad a lot of money for others too.

That in and of its self is a contributing factor that none of us here will ever match. At least to the extent she did.

Secondly, the fact that she is a fallen Human Being is cause for reflection, not scorn (criticism as you called it beandog) and should be a lesson for all of us and all that wish to follow in her foot steps, I hope they heed the warning signs.

People who want to emulate her should be aware for sure, but criticizing her on Easter Sunday when we're all no different (in terms of being fallen)?

That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
