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.

Jenny,
That is very illegal to let anyone to post photo autospy on any site. It is the laws. It is no way to know that is belonging to Whitney Houston or anyone else. From the bottom of line, that is not Whitney Houston officially! What truly disrespectful and improper!!!!!

How is it that Whitney called Kim Burrell at 2:06 p.m. pst, then called and spoke with her mother 30 minutes before they found her dead body, and then fall asleep in the water that supposedly caused her slipping skin on parts of her body, for only by 30 mins. later a staff person found her dead at 3:30 p.m., only then to be pronounced at 3:55 p.m. officially dead by authorities, somebody please make some sense here cause this just make any sense but these are the facts listed everywhere if somebody with good sense just put the piece of the puzzle together. And let's not forget Ray J. going to her room. What time was that? Somebody need to get to talking.
