We were all devastated by the death of legendary singer, Whitney Houston, yesterday and the cause of death is still unknown. What is known, however, is that there was no alcohol or illegal drugs present at the time of death.
According to TMZ reports:
No illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died — at least not yet — but prescription drugs were present, and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub … TMZ has learned. Sources tell us … when EMTs arrived Whitney’s body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD’d, drowned or died from some other cause.
Informed sources tell us … Beverly Hills cops — who were still searching the room at the time this story was posted — found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room.
Whitney’s body was just removed from the room on a gurney. It will go to the morgue for an autopsy to determine cause of death.
Update: Whitney’s body was found “underwater”:
Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday … with her face underwater … people close to Whitney tell TMZ. According to our sources, her stylist, hairdresser and two bodyguards were among the people in the room at the time. We’re told they became worried about Whitney because she had been in the bathroom for over an hour and it was time to start getting ready for the Clive Davis party.
Our sources say they began to knock on the door and there was no answer. We’re told the hairdresser, who is female, went in to check on Whitney. She immediately screamed and, according to our sources, one of the bodyguards came running in and pulled her out of the tub.
We’re told Whitney’s face was below the water and her legs were up … like she had slid down the back of the tub. According to our sources, her body was very cold and the bodyguard attempted CPR. That’s when hotel security was called. Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter, but Whitney was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.
