Coroner: Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system

The LA County coroner’s report lists cocaine among the drugs in Whitney Houston’s system when she died, according to TMZ.com. The coroner’s report also cites “accidental drowning” as the cause of death, which might have been precipitated by a heart attack.

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. Source

Whitney, 48, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her hotel suite in Beverly Hills, CA on Feb. 11. Investigators found no cocaine in Whitney’s hotel room.

Whitney had a long history of drug abuse and alcohol problems dating back to the 1980s.

    No, you heard right, but they just said that that was the “preliminary” one and to be for certain they’d have to see what else was in her system. If the heart stopped then the breathing stopped IMO and that’s why not that much water was in her lungs IONO :shrug:

    Crack is whack, but pills are … a work of art?

    A portrait of late singer Whitney Houston made up entirely of pills has been created by mosaic artist Jason Mecier. In the past, Mecier has made similar portraits of Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and Courtney Love among others.

    Ibuprofen, Xanax, Midol and amoxicillin were some of the pills found in Whitney’s hotel room when she died last month.
