Whitney Houston

Police Seek Search Warrant

in Death Investigation

2/11/2012 7:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beverly Hills police have sealed off the room where Whitney Houston died and will not enter until they obtain a search warrant ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the police want to conduct a thorough search of the hotel room, but are exercising caution by getting a warrant. We're told one thing police are interested in is whether drugs are present in the room. 

Although police could seize items in plain view, we're told they want a top-to-bottom search of the room.

Beverly Hills cops entered the room in response to the 911 call when emergency workers gave Whitney CPR, but we're told aside from a cursory look around the room ... they conducted no search.

They can search that room all they want they won't find a thing because all the drugs are in her body. SMH.

Now come on you know they pulled the needle out of her arm and cleared out all the drugs before calling for help.

Who found her? Who called 911? I have a sneaking suspicion that the person who found her, depending on who that person was, probably destroyed any evidence.

Why would the person in her entourage wait to call 911 by calling the hotel security first? If I had pwople around me I would demand that NO MATTER WHAT if anything at all, big or small happens call 911 first...worry about drama later.

Isn't this what also happened to Anna Nicole Smith...delayed 911 calls?

And what about the pictures online of Whitney with blood on her legs and scratches/cuts on her writs last night? And ABC news reporting that she was not dead as rumors swirled that she died yesterday and her pople denied it and said she was at home in New Jersey. Weird...what is going on here?
