Whitney Houston

Water Found in Her Lungs

2/12/2012 4:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211_whitney_getty_ex_12The autopsy of Whitney Houston revealed she did have water in her lungs when she died, but the medical examiner needs to determine exactly how much before they can rule whether she died as a result of drowning ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. 

As TMZ first reported, authorities believe Houston may have fallen asleep or lapsed into unconsciousness in the bathtub and drowned.

But according to our sources, authorities cannot yet determine whether Houston died before she was submerged in the water or after. We're told there is still a possibility Houston was dead before she went under the water. 

Toxicology results will be back in 4-6 weeks.

Who cares? Just another dead drug addict. She squandered her tremendous God-given talent and beauty. And just how good of a mother can a drug addict be? She had everything but she threw it all away.

It's a sad situation and sad way to go. I've seen it happen before, a person does not have to consume a whole bottle of prescription pills in order to die from them, just mix a couple with alcohol and that's the end, even quicker if you jump into a hot bath and your alcohol level raises. Sometimes it is completely accidental and unintentional, sometimes it's from carelessness. Who knows what ever the case may be about Whitney, but it's sad how everyone jumps to conclusion just because of her past.

To #4 comment (four) Conrad Murray... Clearly you didn't have a thing too do with this, you MORON... 911 was instantly called. something you should have done, you murderer.

Yeah, that I do not understand. This, to me, is just too unreal, that some people value money more than they do a human life.

She could only sing in one key. She was not even acceptable to listen to for more than one song, because her singing sounded the same, song after song. Her style was crummy.

So many hateful comments. I wonder how many of the people posting hateful comments were in church yesterday talking about how much the love the Lord and how they serve God. I wonder how your family would feel if people wrote these things about you when you die? would you want your mother, grandmother or children to read these things about you? I understand how cowards operate. Anybody can post hateful things on line. Cowards and Hippocrates, keep hiding behind your computer screens and cell phones. Say and post what you want. You are a coward. I'm so sorry Whitney was not the perfect saint of all things holy like you hateful critics. Rest in Peace Whitney, Jesus still died for you and others like you. He even died for hate filled critics. Hopefully they will change before their souls are called into judgement too.

Hey folks, just a reminder.... She was a real person. Not just a celeb. She has a real family that loves her and is in terrible pain. Think how you would feel if this was your sister, daughter, niece.. etc. Are these the things you want to read about the person you love. Just a condolence to the family is all you need to give and it's the only thing they want to hear from you. Put your feet in their shoes for a minute. it might me your loved one next.

Karen Carpenter or even Olivia Newton-John had/has greater talent. Gabor singing theme to Green Acres had a greater range.

These web sites can speculate day after day, but until the tox's are in, no one will know the cause of Houston's death.
