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.

Bobby may have introduced her to a drug laden lifestyle, but ultimately she made the choice to participate in it. No one is to blame for her death (if it's drug related) except herself.

Whitney Houston's autopsy results will be needed before we can draw any conclusions. She was a great artist, will be sadly missed.

Here's my take, as I take Klonopin for anxiety disorders but don't drink booze cause I know better. her death was not due to Xanax as it has a very short half-life. Her mother called her an hour prior and said everything sounded fine. What must have happened during the next hour then?
Whitney drank heavy liquor and went to take a bath. Alcohol has a half-life of one hour. One hour after her call to her mother Whitney drowns alcohol and goes unconscious. It was alcohol, not Xanax. Just like Amy Winehouse.

Although Bobby Brown may not be directly the cause of death he introduced her to he lifestyle that lead to her downfall......she was always too classy for him, everyone tried to warn her, but her love for him reigned. My prayers are for her daughter and family.......heaven has a new choir member.

We are responsible for our actions, but stuff happens. The spirit is willing and the flesh is weak. That's why we all need a Savior, Jesus Christ.

What I don't understand is this and it is puzzling....someone in her "entourage" came in and found her and called security???? WHY did they NOT call 9-11 immediately on their cellphone? Forget calling anyone else! Also, her mother, sweet Cissy Houston spoke to Whitney about 30 minutes prior to her death and said she was ok. Unless Whitney wasn't truthful, something is wrong with this picture. What happened in a half hour? And...if she was in a bathtub, breathing and started to fall asleep and go under the water, she would have woken up and started choking, grasping for air. GOD IN HEAVEN, please show all of us the truth about what happened to Whitney in Jesus' Name. Please forgive me for not praying for her 6-7 days ago when she was on my heart. Please send the right people and Your Holy Spirit to comfort Whitney's daughter so she doesn't die from grief over her mom's death please in Jesus' Name. Please heal her precious little girl in Jesus' Name.

Also, IF this is another drug-related death, may GOD Almighty bring justice out of this and remove Xanax from the market so NO ONE can take that horrible drug ever again!!

August, you are wrong! Sorry. That is not true. There are people in the music business who are in AA. There are also people in the music business who are NOW born-again Christians who gave their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ and speak about it and they are not blacklisted.
