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.

It's so sad because this is a woman who could of totally gone the other way in her life if she thought better of herself. She was beautiful enough where she could of had any white guy she wanted but chose to reach to the bottom of the barrel and sully herself in the lifestyle that goes with marrying a trash black guy. Poor choices kill and for Whitney they did.

My god, you people are so cold. So focused and judgmental of her use of drugs or alcohol. Either you are too young to have truly been touched by her work or just want to damn her life to make your seem that much better possibly? I'm sure most of you played "I will always love you" endlessly during times when you felt weak or had loss. Remember her in this context maybe? We all have weaknesses, some of us have addictive personalities (food, alcohol, abuse) but very few of us have to deal with being human and non-human (celebrity) at the same time. At least show the woman, the dead, and her memory and music some respect.

Did she have poop in her lungs too, then? You poop when you die.

Look up hot water or hot tubs not being safe for you if you have had a drink or medications, or certain medical conditions.

Who cares what the cause was. I just lost my mom and yes they checked and listed cause of death, liver failure that developed overnight? No medications and no illness a week before she was hospitalized with jaundice, and she died when they gave her anesthesia she should not have had. Whatever the reason it is Bobbi Kristina's mom, this was my mom, and it's very hard to cope with. I feel so bad that she has to see or read all of these reports and comments. Blessings.
