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.

When I heard that Whitney had died, I thought did someone kill her? Well, yes very covertly I would say. Once again again we see another huge artist, inspiration for other artists, die from psychiatric drugs (reported she was taking Xanax).
It infuriates me to see how psychiatry (backed by pharmaceutical companies) continue to wreak havoc on our society. This has killed an incredibly good singer. One of the best. Artists like her, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Billie Holiday, Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Cobain etc., all leaving us too soon because of maltreatment from the psychiatric field. How many potentially great artists will never fulfill their destiny? And how will our culture suffer from their absence?
I sing also, and looking back in my life Whitney's power in her voice was always my inspiration. It is such a loss.
Let's rid our society of psychiatry before we lose another giant inspiration to us all.

Pretty sure your post should say "unresponsive" rather than "responsive". Might want to correct that...
