Whitney Houston

Autopsy Scheduled for Today

2/12/2012 7:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211_whitney_hosuton_ex_4
The autopsy on the body of Whitney Houston will be performed today, but we're told any results will be deferred pending a toxicology report. 

Although the cause of death is unknown, it is increasingly looking like Whitney may have fallen asleep or lapsed into unconsciousness in the bathtub and drowned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Beverly Hills cops retrieved approximately a half dozen pill bottles from Whitney's room ... including Xanax. No illicit drugs were found. 

Whitney had been drinking the night before and authorities believe a combination of Xanax and alcohol could have fatally sedated her -- although our sources say it is simply too early to draw any firm conclusions.

At least you can't accuse TMZ for milking the topic of Whitney's death. It's not like they're reporting every little detail about what happened and are keeping it modest.......oh, wait...

next day autopsy? Wow you would think that a place like LA would have a bunch to do. I guess the rich and famous are different even in death.
I say rack em and stack em and do the autopsy in order of arrival no matter who they are.

Was Ms. Whitney Houston saved by God at her time of death or was she sinning?

Oh my God, I completely remember this tub, and may have even complained that it was slippery and had no hand rails!! I had a suite, on the 4th floor, a couple of years ago. Weird!

No illicit drugs were found in Whitney's penthouse. There was a disproportionate amount of Xanax, Dilaudid, Adderall, Percodan, Oxycontin, and Desoxyn. But no illicit drugs, so it's all good. There was also reportedly a quantity of Risperidone, but "sources close to Whitney" scooped them up before the medics could pilfer them. Linds says they have a cool "downer" buzz.

haha - so the Beverly Hills Hotel killed her by having big ass luxury tubs. If it'd been a normal plain ol tub she wouldn't have slipped under like that. Pretty pathetic ending.

Rest In Peace Whitey Houston. Such a sad deal for her, her friends and family. But what it is also sad is Clive Davis whom has taken the limelight for mentoring Whitney Houston.... IN reality it is a man named Danny Gittelman, who used to own Pickwick Records.. When Danny Gittelman had retired from that company, Dion Warwick had called him wanting to set up an interview with her niece (Whitney Houston) and it was there Whitney Houston's career actually began in Fall River, MA under the mentorship of Danny Gittelman.

Why didn't Bobby Brown cancel his show to be by his daughters side?? Sounds selfish to me. Instead, he cries on stage and points to the sky. He should've been with his daughter at this time. Also, why are doctors so quick to prescribe Xanax all the time?? If the celeb can't handle the stress of performing, maybe that person should not overbook themselves and slow down. They'd probably make more money if they didn't have so many concerts. Look at the Eagles. They charge mega bucks for a concert ticket.
RIP Whitney....You will be greatly missed. :(

Xanax, alcohol and a good dose of Bobby Brown. Sir, I think you have become the most hated man in America today.

She was a good girl until she hooked up with that fatherless welfare thug Brown. Can't feel sorry for her now, she made her own choices.

Like so many before her, she was a grown up and made her own decisions. Unfortuantely this one ended her life. No one is to blame but the person making the choice to drink and take the pills, even if they are a celebrity.
