Whitney Houston

in Death Investigation

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.

Probably once the corporate music industry insiders realize the celebrity isn't ever gonna get clean and/or sober the industry has them killed off for huge sales once dead. Celebs on drugs either are bankrupt or will be & will drain corporate profits. Same for Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse. Music industry cuts its losses and increases its profits, thus the "mystery deaths." Conrad Murray was a fall guy on the dole, way cheaper to pay him off even at his high price out of the staggering sales after MJ's death. Whitney's body found in bathtub after music exec who wished to be unnamed in suite above Whitney's room hears loud thumping noises and a male's excited voice. Always some weird unbelievable delay before cops are called, etc. The mystery aspect of the deaths also boosts sales and extends press coverage. This might be a real story uncovered by following the money trail.

The world has lost another great. It is unfortunate that it takes the loss of one, before they are truly honored. You know what? We didn't deserve them to begin with. This world is far worse off than any addict. All addicts have this in common.....the escape. Society is responsible for tearing people down inside. All for their own entertainment. But, Whitney, you are beauty. You represent the essence of a Gift from God, that was sifted, by fame and fortune. Whitney, you are an angel, who has found her way. God will sustain, Kristina. Now...Rest in Peace.

She was a train wreck! Not too unlike Amy Winehouse.

I wonder why a tabloid would suggest suicide. I can't figure that this is suicide. I'm curious about why she had blood and scratches on her leg the day before her death and I am sure the investigators will follow up on this. Of course we all expect to find drugs in her system. It was public knowledge that she had a problem. But suicide? She would not have been discussing her seating plans for the party with her aunt before her death if she had not planned to be there. Suicides give signs. Until the coroner releases a statement all judgment and comments should be reserved.

Its unfortunate to lose such a great woman at such an early age. Prayers are in order for her family and especially her little girl.

Did it ever occur to anyone that she could have had an aneurysm, heart attack, slipped in the tub and knocked unconscious, etc...and not necessarily a drug overdose?
