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.

Sad about Whitney but sooo sick of people blaming prescription drugs. Addicts will use anything to get high. I for one am tired of the pill blaming and even some talking about banning them. Come on people, i have panic attacks, if it were not for xanax and valium i would have wanted to end my life years ago. Thank god for these meds and the people that need them. Blame the one who misuses them.

Has anyone thought about the combination of the Amoxicillin antibiotic she had just been prescribed with the Xanax and the alcohol? Amoxicillin can induce a long QT delay rhythm in the heart. And Xanax and alcohol together are a problem for the heart. So all three together may be the answer to what happened. No one really talks about the Amoxicillin causing the long QT delay, and I wonder how many student athletes that have a heart problem have recently been prescribed this drug as it is such a common antibiotic. I am afraid it may be an under-reported problem.

I just wish somebody in these negative comments family would have died. I want to see how you would respond. Love covers the multitude of faults. The fact is she is dead and we are sad. You steady judging but I wonder how you would take it if your're children lost you today.
