Whitney Houston

Few Pills Recovered

at Death Scene

2/13/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Multiple medicine bottles were found in the Beverly Hills hotel room where Whitney Houston diedLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ ... multiple medicine bottles were found in the Beverly Hills hotel room where Whitney Houston died ... but we're told there were NOT a lot of pills at the scene.

Among the pills ... ibuprofen (painkiller), Xanax (anti-depressant), Midol (for menstrual cramps), amoxicillin (for treating bacterial infections) ... and more.

We're told the amoxicillin was prescribed recently because Whitney had been suffering from a sore throat.

We're told some of the pills were old ... some issued in 2011 ... but some of the bottles were from 2012. We're told the bottles that were recovered at the scene did not contain a lot of pills.

Sources tell us ... some of the prescriptions were filled at the infamous Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills ... where Michael Jackson had numerous prescriptions filled for Demerol and other drugs.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... it's possible Whitney suffered a heart attack caused by an adverse reaction to her medication, but it is simply too early to make an official call on the cause of death.

We're told the L.A. Coroner's Office has removed the hold on Whitney's body ... which means her family can now have Whitney transported back to Atlanta, where the singer will be laid to rest.

In my own view, she could be killed by stroke. I dont think whiney will be so fool taking prescription drug with drink. We all known she was facing hard time which could have been results to stroke. I love her so much, May her soul rest in peace.

It will all come out in the tox report about the bills plus if she had pill residue in her stomach. It is possible her heart gave out because of her drug addiction and it's also possible she accidentally drowned in the bathtub from drug and alcohol intoxication. It'll be found out when all the test results are analyzed.

My only concern and question would be, Why was Whitney taking a bath??? Media confirmed that she was talking to family and friends just an hour before her death. She was suppose to meet with her girl friend before they went to the party which was to be in an hour after her death. Why would Whitney be taking a bath?? Any women knows, You got one of your best friends Biggest event party in an hour.Your girls gonna meet up with your at any time now, Take A Bath!!! No she would be doing final touch up! Hair and face. Lets go the other way, friends lying about her, shes drunk, high! Still, Why would she be taking a bath??? Any one who knows an addict, if their not worried about their appearance, they certainly not worried if they showered!! I think they should look in to foul play! She had cuts and scratches on her body. Media confirmed she had verbal confutation's with a few people.

Thank, you, Ryan, for handling that the way you just did, for respecting Whitney Houston and her family right now, TMZ might be setting a new gold standard here. The more people who understand this and behave accordingly will elevate themselves to decent and, perhaps, even, a touch of class! Imagine THAT!
