Whitney Houston, a movie icon died in a hotel room with her entourage. Far cry from her days in the 80s. She married rap artist Bobby Brown and subsequently there were rumours of rampant drug use.
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office said Sunday afternoon that an autopsy on pop icon Whitney Houston’s body has been completed, but official results have been placed on hold, pending toxicology tests.
Los Angeles Deputy Coroner Ed Winter said at a press conference that the tests could take six to eight weeks to process.
Winter added that the Beverly Hills Police Department had requested a “security hold” on the results of the coroner’s investigation, meaning no further details will be made available until the inquiry is complete.
He confirmed earlier comments made by police that “no foul play is suspected.”
He also confirmed that Houston was found Saturday afternoon in a bath tub in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Prescription drugs had been found in the Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room where Houston’s lifeless body was discovered Saturday afternoon just hours before a huge Grammy party she was to attend.
