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.

The demons that Whitney battled could have been stopped by her piece of $hit husband Bobby Brown. He is a piece of DNA $shit and is a waste of space. But he did nothing to help Whitney. he was , and probably still is a drug addict . But in my opinion he is a total piece of DNA %hit. Whitney was a super talented artist , with a golden voice, and with the looks of a Grecian Goddess. What a tucking tragedy her death is. Millions of people around the world got pleasure and happiness listening to her golden voice and her romantic songs. Whoever listened to Bobby Brown , maybe low life drug s***. ...........RIP Whitney Huston.

If it's too early to draw conclusions...quit drawing them. Nobody will know the truth until the reports come out. No matter what they say, she's not coming back.

Nice rollover on the word Xanax. So I can get that on the internet with no prescription according to your ad - in the middle of the article about a death caused by Xanax. Nice.

@Betina!"Are you "GOD"?? "I didn't think so,you give me the impression that you think your superior to others"."Whitney and Michael only have to answer to "GOD" and not another "FLAW" azz human being"!"You sound like your a narcissistic who have no empathy for another human being"."How do you know how a addict is unless your one yourself"? "Have you walked in Whitney or Michael shoes"? "I didn't think so,they are loved whether you like it or not"."Your not perfect,we all are sinners first,you should be on your knees asking "GOD" to forgive you for trying to take over his job"!"You are a lost soul who need prayer"! "R.I.P. Whitney"!!

It is a known fact that only low minded people with filth in their hearts assume the worst about others, specially when they die. Why not let us wait and see what really happened. And even if she did die of drug overdose let us hope that she had the consciousness to make it right with God at the last moment. Very good thing that He is not like man. He is a Great God of Mercy and Grace.
