Speculation has run rampant since the death of singing legend Whitney Houston. Drugs, alcohol, drugs and alcohol, an unknown disease, and even murder… all have been considered possibilities that caused the singers death. But, the coroner’s report is finally in!
A mere ten minutes ago, the Associated Press reported the findings of the autopsy done on Houston. The conclusive cause of death? Drowning. Whitney Houston, who was found submerged in her hotel bathtub, died of drowning.
‘Whitney Houston was a chronic cocaine user who had the drug in her system when she drowned in a hotel bathtub, coroner’s officials said Thursday after releasing autopsy findings that also noted heart disease contributed to her death,’ the Associated Press reported.
Basically, that could be construed as meaning that the cocaine she used that evening lowered her heart rate to the point of a near coma state that caused her to lose consciousness and slide under the water, causing her to drown.
‘Coroner’s Chief of Operations Craig Harvey said cocaine and its byproducts were found in Houston’s system, and the drug was listed as a contributing factor in her death. He said the results indicated Houston was a chronic cocaine user,’ AP reported. This just gives credence to our conclusion.
‘Toxicology results also showed Houston had marijuana, Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, and the allergy medication Benadryl in her system,’ they went on to say. With all of these medications in her system, it is entirely plausible that The Daily Fix’s scenario is what actually occurred on that cold night in Febuary.
But, no matter how she died, Whitney Houston’s death was tragic, sudden, and honestly unexpected. And, no matter what led to her death, she is still gone and she will always be missed.
