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.

unbelievable     

I can't believe TMZ. This organization does nothing but prey on the sadness that is being felt by her family.
Get off it. You are the worst of the worst
Leave them alone, I am guessing NONE of you have ever lost a family member..

I have all those at my house, and I take a drink every day. I'm guessing cocaine at the party the previous night.

Does anyone really believe her family is reading what is being written here? I totally don't think they would.

She was one I figured would have made it. After over a decade of Enquirer photos of her crack den bathrooms, trashed outhomes, relatives selling her out for a dollar, and over the top drug use, I thought she was coming out the other side and going to be OK.

Mainstream news networks have largely avoided discussion of multiple reports of pharmaceutical drugs being the cause of Houston’s death because the establishment is keen to hide the fact that pharmaceutical drugs, particularly psychotropic anti-depressants, kill more people than illegal substances by a factor of 300 per cent.
Prescription drugs kill over 200,000 Americans every year — even when taken as directed and not abused! In comparison, there is no do***ented case of marijuana ever killing anyone, despite the fact that it is illegal in America.
“Whitney Houston is just one of countless Americans who are victims of Big Pharma, an industry that cares far more about corporate profits than it does about the lives of real people. And now, we have lost yet another iconic American artist whose life was cut short by addiction, prescription drugs and the entire “medication culture” that exists in America today. Houston’s erratic behavior before her death clearly indicated she was suffering from the side-effects of psychiatric drugs, including Xanax, which is known to cause odd behavior and suicidal thoughts.
With the two industries tied at the hip, don’t expect the corporate media to do much to impugn its relationship with the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical boondoggle by reporting the truth about Houston’s cause of death.
Big Pharma spends more money on promotion and advertising than it does on research and development, a huge chunk of which goes to the big news networks, so don’t think for a second the likes of CNN, NBC and CBS will be too eager to make the connection between Houston’s intake of pharmaceutical drugs and her untimely demise.

"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"

That makes no sense. Yes, it's too early to tell what specific drug/substance was involved, but the medical examiner has completed the autopsy, and that includes examination of her heart. If she had a cardiac event, they would have established that during the autopsy. It's most likely she died of respiratory arrest as a result of over-sedation.

Sounds like the scene was cleaned up, including ditching illegal drugs stored in legit but old prescription bottles. It's one of the oldest tricks in the books for addicts along with paid staff (including relatives) covering for them.

I hope your guys werent the ones taking her "last" photos cause they SUCK.There were none of her smiling? yeah right.just have to put the worse ones out. and following her to the doctors? Is that what you think the public wants?and why do the stupid camera guys have to talk the stars like they are their friends ?really?they just show how really ignorant they are.
I think there should be a new reality show or even a low budget magazine about following the paparazzi and getting in THEIR faces.
