Whitney Houston
's body has been removed from the L.A. County Morgue in a Coroner's van and is currently en route to an L.A. funeral home ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Whitney's family will now take possession of the body and it will be flown back East by private jet in the next few hours.

The Coroner would not comment on transportation details, but we've confirmed the body is in the van seen in the video.

The body should be arriving at the airport by noon Pacific time.

Wow ...    

Isn't it amazing, the "Coroner" will not comment on transportation details, but the body of Whitney Houston is in the Coroner Van. Someone should reconsider 'leaking" information for money. I thought you were advocates for the deceased!?!?

It's just a van. Even if her body is in there, so what.

chasing a van with a recently deceased person it? Do you really want a photo of her dead body? Is that what the stalker cameras are looking for? Let this family have a proper funeral and burial in peace. She's gone. We get it.

But they will call this obvious drug-overdose-suicide, "death by misadventure"

WH has millions of fans. I hope the family can catch a break and bury her in peace, she at least deserves that. The media are like Pirhanna and will stop at nothing to get that first pic of her deceased, sick.

For now, can we celebrate her music and talent and save judgment on how she lived and died until the Coroner receives his tox report?

She was a daughter, ex-wife, girlfriend and mother, whether you like those people or not, so please show her some respect and grace for that. There will be plenty of time for the haters to judge and crucify her later on.

She's gone people, please save the rude comments and show her fans some respect. Thank You.

Don't really think it's necessary to show or tell the bodys being transported when and how. I think if it doesn't have anything to do with pills why wouldn't the coroner say at least they had found other causes too but awaiting the tox reports for a complete cause of death so at least stop some of the rumors or speculation. It was reported on Hln somone staying in the room below heard 2 loud booms within minutes before police and ambulance arrived. They surmised it probably was the bodyguard breaking the door to get to her or whoever it was who found her. They also think the timeline doesn't make sense. Within minutes after the police and rescue arrived they declared Whitney dead and usually they still transport the person to a hospital even when revive efforts fail at the scene such as in the case with MJ and Anna Nicole and others. They believe because of that she may have been dead hours before because of declaring her dead within minutes of arriving and not transporting her to the hospital. I understand if the family and entourage was trying to not let certain details out but there's so much out there now it would be better for the family and coroner to try and stop all the speculation and not let it go on for 4 to 6 weeks. Think it's sad another talented and gifted artist is gone. There's been so many thru the years that has died an early death. It doesn't seem any lessons have been learned. RIP Whitney.
