Whitney Houston

Found Dead in the Bathtub

2/11/2012 9:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beverly Hilton hotel employees tell TMZ ... Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her room. 

As we previously reported, a member of Whitney's entourage discovered her unresponsive and called hotel security, who then called 911.

We're told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. Paramedics performed CPR, but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation.

As of this post, cops are still waiting on a warrant to search the room.

Obama released a touching statement tonight and said he blames George Bush for this.

Why was security called first and then 911??? Seconds count in these situations. Was there something to ide, hence the search warrant??

So if BH PD detectives are still waiting for a search warrant does this mean that the body is still in the room at the very same time that Clive Davis is throwing his party in the same Hotel? If so very surreal.

Michael Jackson passes before the BET Awards, Amy Winehouse passes before the VMA's, and R.I.P Whitney Houston passes before the Grammy's. a little odd, damn you Illuminati!

Wow, that judge must be busy playing golf or if it's a judge like Judge Perry, at the local Popeyes.

Rigimortis has already set in if she's still in the tub.

I'll wait to see the pictures in the National Enquirer.

So this is either an accidental or intentional overdose. I get sadder as the evening wears on. It's just so tragic that there were so many people who loved her but none could ultimately save her. We can only save ourselves in the end.
