Whitney Houston

Autopsy Completed,

Results Pending Toxicology

2/12/2012 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The autopsy of Whitney Houston is complete.The autopsy of Whitney Houston is complete, TMZ has learned, but the results will be deferred pending a toxicology report.

According to our sources, a cause of death cannot be determined until the toxicology results ... which typically takes 4-6 weeks. 

A coroner's spokesman says the results are on a security hold, which just means nothing is being released at this time.

As TMZ first reported ... 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.

We're told 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.

A rep for the Beverly Hills PD just announced during a news conference -- the preliminary investigation is nearly complete ... pending final results from the L.A. Coroner's Office.

To all you ignorant f**ks disrepecting whitney after her death, really doesnt say much about you. Who are you people to judge? Whitney was a beautiful person inside and out, and probably accomplished more then u losers ever have.

Forget her beauty, forget her beautiful voice that could grab your heart and make tears come to her eyes, even forget about her weakness in love disguised in drugs, pray for her lost soul as another victim that society has given and taken away. The only truth is love and Gods holding of all of your lives in His precious hands of everlasting love and forgiveness

Some people don't know where and when to stop, she had everything, she had the voice, the beauty and its a shame to end this way. There are so many out there that has nothing to live for and still fight with dignity. I loved her voice, but hate what she did to herself.

Things that make drugs dangerous and useful are dosage and how to consume. Both are influenced by the user.
