Whitney Houston’s Death Ruled An Accident

Pop icon Whitney Houston’s sudden death will be ruled an accident, according E! News, who quoted a source with knowledge of the ongoing investigation.

E! News reports that Houston’s family always believed her death was accidental — and not as the result of a deliberate suicide attempt.

The autopsy toxicology screen could be in the Beverly Hills Police Department’s hands by next week and, depending on the status of other elements of their investigation, the case could be closed very soon afterward.

Houston, 48, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel in LA on Feb. 11. About a half dozen prescription bottles containing anti-anxiety medications, analgesics (pain meds), and the antibiotic Amoxicillin were found in Houston’s hotel room.

She was seen by a Beverly Hills doctor who treated her for a sore throat a few days before she died.

    My husband said he thought it may have been suicide since she was having such a downward spiral recently and had lost her signature voice…I never thought it was though…just a bad mix of meds and a weary heart… :(

    You know I had to google that. I haven’t been in target for months, and at least sinc Easter last year in the card section……

    It’s still too soon to make Whitney Houston jokes — at least according to the people at Target, who have decided to pull a greeting card from their shelves that mocks the late singing legend.

    The card — available long before Whitney died — pokes fun at the singer’s downward spiral in recent years … “Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston.”

    The card was kinda funny before she died — but now that Whitney’s gone, Target has decided it’s a tad too offensive … at least for now … and is currently in the process of yanking it from its stores.

    A rep for the store tells TMZ, “The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores.”

    I can’t beleive they were allowed to use her LIKENESS? :shrug:

    To answer your question, no, he didn’t follow her like that, and I agree that she wasn’t suicidal and had actually started to sound much better recently… :)

It was an accident becuz she was taking way too much but who provided her with the drugs for the 4-5 days knew better! Like a former dealer said- he told her she was using way to much and she needed to slow down this coming from a person that makes his money selling DRUGS!

    Because for one, if you worship money, your life isn’t in order anyway. People kill me justifying why the have to have money. Yes, money is a necessity, but if you are comfortable and not struggling, then why are you worried about having more? Greed is a mofo. I know plenty of poor folk that live in Trailers, drive putt-putt vehicles but guess what, they’re happy… and they’ll be the first to tell you. I don’t owe nobody else nothing and they can sleep in peace.

    Living within your means helps a lot too. You wonder why people are 32 walking around going on 45 in the face. My grandmother use to always say “that’s what worrying about them bills a do to a person” :yes: ( :hahaha: )

    She was chilling with Ray J the whole time she was in LA before the whatever awards and it was reported Ray J showed up at the hotel with a group of friends and heard of her death and had a melt down MAJOR! His friends was trying to tell him to shut up but he wasn’t having it – the staffers at the hotel said it was sorta bizarre and reported he said what I qouted and the friends ushered his azz quickly outta of there! It’s also been reported Whitney had drug dealers from here to Europe – and Ray J is still suffering from the loss of her! He’s hurting bad mainly cuz of their relationship and partly imo he feels responsible!

I guess the family wanted to keep it hush hush so we can look at her different. Like “See she didn’t kill herself on purposely!” Umm yes she did. And I hope everyone knows, whether your rich or poor, your not given special treatment at the pearly gates. Whitney is sitting next to the homeless man that we laughed at & ignorned.

    ___________________________________________________________________

    In my previous post, I mentioned my father dealing with alcohol & drugs for 32 years of my life. I also sat with him @AA meetings and they educated me about how Addiction is a disease. He wanted to die because he destroyed our family & felt like he disappointed all of us. Yes, you are commiting suicide slowly. Intentional or not. As a nurse, Im often asked from patients to give them more drugs to take away their pain & told they don’t want to live anymore. But when the family is in the room, its a different story. They mask their pain & put on the happy face. Unfortunately, misuse of prescriptions drugs can lead to resp or cardiac failure mixed with alcohol or even taken alone. Maybe you knew Whitney personally, so I appoligize for being judgemental. I took it personal because I was her daughter at one point. Watching my dad stumble in the streets & Im playing the adult at 10 was painful. We’ll just agree to disagree. :peace:
