Vesta Williams

Prescription Pills Found

at Death Scene

Multiple bottles of prescription pills were found in the El Segundo, CA hotel room where R&B singer Vesta Williams died ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told "several bottles" were discovered -- some empty.

Law enforcement sources tell us officials first received a call related to Vesta's death around 6PM Thursday night. 

Sources tell us the death is being treated as either an accident or suicide, but not a homicide.

The coroner won't know if drugs played a part in her death until the toxicology reports are in -- and that could take 6 weeks.

Racismin2011really???    

RIP Vesta!!!!! By the way "and the hood she comes from" tasteless and an indication of your big mouth and small mind. The other ridiculously stupid comment "after losing weigh nobody wanted you" STUPID!!! How would you know who wanted her? There is a slight possibility that after using poor grammar and making ignorant statements "nobody wanted you queen love!"

She was an R&B Singer. An had a string of top 10 hits. Her father was a disc jockey in Ohio. Not every artist is heard by everyone. I didn't know who Mr. Steele was until I looked up his history. So, please folks don't let your ignorance show.
