Whitney Houston's Aunt

The Lady Who Tried to Save Her

2/13/2012 2:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's aunt Mary Jones -- the woman who discovered the singer's body in the hotel bathtub, pulled her out and tried reviving her -- arrived at LAX yesterday to fly back east for the singer's funeral.

TMZ broke the story ... Whitney's aunt, Mary Jones, was in Whitney's room, laid out her dress for the Clive Davis party and then left for 30 minutes.  When she returned, she knocked at the bathroom door and entered to find Whitney submerged in the bathtub.

Mary tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate Whitney before paramedics arrived.

Awkward video guys. Possibly a step too far (again).

Considering she was taking prescription drugs for a VERY SORE throat, AND, according to TMZ, she had FOOD in the bathroom with her, is it possible that Whitney Houston CHOKED to death?

I can't imagine being famous and having to deal with these idiots all the time. Let the family grieve it's ridiculous. Getting money to record people's pain and suffering, there's a career choice I would never want.

The only thing Whitney is good for now, is being the teachable moment about drugs for the rest of us.

Will RayJ's messages from Whitney ever be revealed? I'm sure that is what is contributing to his guilt of grief.
