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.

Please don't think that all white people are disrespecting Whitney. I love Whitney Houston as do so many others. We will always love her. She was such a great talent. There are a certain number of people who post badly about famous people. The more famous, the more hate they dish out. I'm sorry that some of you are upset by them.

To all those idiots that want to blame the doctor for prescribing the pills: Do you also blame the guy that sells the guns to a murderer? Do you also blame the liquor store for selling the booze to an alcoholic that drinks himself to death? The bottom line is that an addict is going to find drugs one way or another. It is sad that she died, but how about some personal accountability.

What's the difference between Whitney then and now? A dead junkie. A dead junkie surrounded by a crew ruled by fear of being left out if they said no to her. Now their all on the outs, dead celebritie's assistants are a tough hire. Oh well, its back to Kansas for you Dorothy.

I too am sick and tired of these cellebrities who make these stars out to be some kind of saints - I mean Stevie wonder for goodness sake! How do you know she's not stoking the fire? Her visit to SA about 15 years ago she refused to see a child dying of cancer. God blessed her with amazing talent and success and what dod she do with it - Another opportunity for Mariah Kerry to show off her tits - like at Michael Jackson's funeral

She was a victim of her own success. Some can handle it some can't... SHE COULDN'T. Another Amie Winehouse I'm afraid!! Brought up in a christian home, first singing in gospel choirs she turned her back on it and plugged for the ruins riches and fame... A kind of angel fallen from grace! Author Stephen Gerard-Hayden.

Xanax has taken so many lives, it should be banned from being prescribed. It just a shame that it hasn't already been then maybe, just maybe Whitney would be here today and Bobbi would still have her mother.
