Whitney Houston Died Of Accidental Drowning, Had Cocaine In Her System
Singer Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system at the time of her death, a coroner has ruled.
The LA County Coroner’s report states the official cause of Houston’s death was accidental drowning but it also notes that heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors.
Marijuana and Xanax were among other substances found in Houston’s system, but they did not contribute to her death.
Houston, 48, was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel in LA last month.
Police found no evidence of cocaine in the hotel room.
A source close to the investigation told TMZ that it was “very possible” Houston had a heart attack brought about by cocaine use and that caused her to lose consciousness and drown.
