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.

With all respect to the family, sometimes people reap what they sow more quickly than others. Drugs, alcohol,etc. hurt lives like this on an hourly basis, but we only think about it more with celebrities or close friends/relatives. I cannot say RIP, because when people die in a sinful state, they are not an angel in heaven. It is imperative that more people repent of sinful living and get ready for the inevitable...we all die at some point. Please take care everyone.

Xanax is NOT a big evil drug that in rxed doeses would have caused death even with a glass of wine or two. She had to have been taking A LOT-over rxed limits in a major way and LOTS of booze to cause death. Anyway about it...a great loss, a shame that someone sooo beautiful and talented couldnt get proper help. :(

OMG really?? What is this ridiculous outpouring of love and respect all of a sudden?! Just like with Michael Jackson, these people were considered personas non grata for years. Drug addicts are f&cked up beings, who lie, cheat, steal to stay on their poisons. They don't have to be rich and famous to be just as impossible to deal with. I'm sure the woman promised to be better and swore she'd stay off the stuff, and sure the richer they are the more people they can find to sneak them the crap. I'm sick of people putting these famous addicts on pedestals, they should be held up as examples of excess and the ridiculous way society holds celebrities, singers, actors, etc. as the most important people in the world. I can't believe the ridic outpouring of grief I'm reading all over the web. Bizarre!!! I'm sorry for her daughter, I hope she follows a clean path.

stop feeling sorry for whitney. feel sorry for her daughter and everyone else she left. watching her interviews she was self absorbed and drugged and i believe mentally ill. she admitted having mental issues with stress that she blamed for making her frail skin and bones etc. she was a good singer before the drugs, but that's it.
