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.

She is ultimately responsible for her life and death. Quit looking for someone to blame! Sad yes, but is it really all that unexpected, no. She made choices in her life, good or bad, addict or not. That's life now let's move on!!

We should wait for the toxicology results and the autopsy report before jumping to conclusions.

Reality has been dawned upon her. This life was a lie. Now she has been entered in the REAL life which is ever lasting. She died not being a muslim and she will burn in hell. How sad? Everyone should cry about this. Its so sad that she had a chance in this life to recognise who god was, and believe in the religion of Islam but she refused. Now she is facing dissapointment and a terrible punishment. People, you are next! So do the right thing.

Yes, Today woke days without shooting star and brilliant of all, unfortunately, we agree with the intention of seeing the sun shine once again, with the intention of seeing the aura most beautiful and pure, to see and hear one more once a beautiful image and voice of "Whitney Houston". They say the best things never last long, and is most true, Whitney was young, and soon. :/
Will be missed, with his voice that mesmerized anyone, I would say that only her voice calmed me when I was sad or angry, hahaha 'and it is true, always put your own songs and rocked me in their rhythms and pure romanticism whitney Houston. I hope that is in a good place, where you can see everything he has done good in the land in a place where you will never disturb you and criticize. For whether here on earth his walk was heavy, or not appealed to many because I have complete confidence that your heart and love is larger than any nonsense, than any problem. The only difficulty that existed here, which will be that no one can erase your star, your great name. WHITNEY HOUSTON. ♥ ((Emanoel Andrade) - Brasil

Whitney Houston threw her life away. She had everything handed to her and she pissed it away. Family connections (Mother: Cissy Houston; Cousin: Dionne Warwick; Godmother: Aretha Franklin) beauty, fame, money, immense talent, body, etc. She was kissed by the fate gods while she was in the cradle and look what she did with it. Most people aren't even lucky enough to be given one of these items by the fate gods, never mind everything. And I think Bobby Brown being blamed for getting her hooked on drugs is ridiculous. I think Whitney was in a far better position to understand the entertainment industry than he was. Look at the family she came from. She was no babe in the woods. She knew exactly what she was doing, but chose to take the drugs anyway. Yes, Bobby Brown is a piece of garbage, but he is not responsible for her taking drugs.
