Whitney Houston

Coroner Gets Calls, Emails

Demanding Murder Investigation

3/6/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston being removed from the Beverly Hills Hilton HotelThe L.A. County Coroner's Office has received phone calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of Whitney Houston.

Sources tell TMZ ... the calls and emails were made by several different people, some claiming to be relatives of Whitney and some relatives of Bobby Brown. The calls and emails have a common theme -- the belief Whitney may have been murdered. At least one person claimed to have information supporting the murder theory.

At least one caller offered a theory about a relative who might have done Whitney in, but offered no supporting proof.

The Coroner's Office has not verified the callers were indeed relatives.

The Coroner has already said there was no sign of foul play or trauma, but the official cause of death won't be determined until toxicology results are in.

An official from the Coroner's Office says the investigation is ongoing and would not comment further.

Damn..Talk about beating a dead Whitney. The woman died from self induced drug-related causes. No one "murdered" her. Jesus! When will celebrities ever be held accountable for their own actions?

"Cissy Houston 'to visit Whitney hotel room'
Cissy Houston is reportedly planning on visiting the hotel room where her daughter Whitney Houston died.

The 78-year-old singer wants to go to the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles to get "closure," TMZ claims.

The I Will Always Love You star died on February 11 after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in the luxury hotel and was buried next to her father in her home town of Newark, New Jersey, a week later.

Cissy apparently wants to make a "spiritual connection" with her superstar daughter to help her deal with the 48-year-old's sudden death."[She] won't be at peace until she gets closure," the source said adding that Cissy wants to spend some "quiet, contemplative time" in the room.

"It is unclear when Cissy plans to return to the hotel room - but we're told the visit will be soon? she's currently planning out the logistics," reports the site

I agree with the family, the matter should be looked into. Why are people so quick to think just because a person had drug problem in the past, that they are automatically responsible when they die. That is what the media tries to paint about her when that was not the case. She was coordiating career moves and listing to gospel music in her room as she regularly did, and now she is suddenly dead? They set that poor woman up, and try to fly the flag of her past drug problems as an excuse or something to look to as a motive. that is what is BS. Her death was suspicious, and they do need to look into what happened, I agree with her family, more power to them and God bless them.

Rich and beautiful or poor and ugly: Alcohol and drugs do not mix. No murder here.

Whitney was exposed to alcohol and drugs and medications like xanax, etc. for years, sober and unsober, and all over the world with never any incident of over dose or death. And it just so happens when she comes to the beverly hilton room, this is the mix that killed her. I dont buy that as an excuse for one minute.

She was in the bathroom by herself. Unless there was a ghost in the room with her with an axe to grind, it was simply just an accidental death. Let her rest in peace.

How do you know she was in the bathroom by herself? How do you even know the death occurred in the bathroom, that is why the family wants an investigation. And the family is not at peace, but I think the truth will come out.

Truth    

CONSPIRACY THEORY GOES LIKE THIS... IT IS IRONIC THAT PATRICIA HOUSTON, MARY JONES, AND RAY WATSON ARE ALL RELATED ON HER SIDE OF THE FAMILY IN WHITNEY'S INNER CIRCLE, NOT THE HOUSTON'S BLOOD SIDE. THE ONLY ONE WHO IS FROM WHITNEY'S BLOODLINE IS GARY HOUSTON, WHITNEY'S HALF BROTHER FROM CISSY'S FIRST MARRIAGE. FROM ALL ACCOUNTS GARY HAS NO POWER IN THE INNER CIRCLE AND MAKES NO DECISIONS RE: WHITNEY'S PROFESSIONAL CAREER. HE'S JUST A LAME BACKGROUND SINGER TO WHITNEY SINCE THE 80'S. PAT JUMPED IN AFTER WHITNEY'S DAD JOHN HOUSTON PASSED AWAY IN 2003. HMMM. SINCE THEN WHITNEY HAS BEEN A SEMI-RECLUSE, ON AND OFF DRUGS TILL PRESENT, AND SHOWN NOTHING PROFESSIONALLY IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA. IF THERE'S ANY CONSPIRACY THEORY IT HAS TO DO WITH PAT'S SIDE OF THE FAM. LOOK, WHITNEY LOST HER VOICE. IT WOULD BE MONTHS BEFORE SHE GET IT BACK WITH VOCAL SURGERY, VOCAL COACHING, STOPPING SMOKES, DRUGS, ANXIETY MEDS, REHAB, ETC. SONY/RCA AND CLIVE KNEW THAT AND DON'T WANT TO WAIT. KILLING HER OFF WOULD IMMEDIATELY SPIKE UP HER RECORD SALES COVERING ANYTHING IN THE $100 MIL CONTRACT SHE STILL OWED TO THE LABEL IN CURRENT ADVANCES. WE SEE THAT HAPPENING ALREADY WITH THE HUGE SPIKE IN SALES LAST 3 WEEKS. HER ESTATE WOULD GAIN WITH FUTURE LICENSING RIGHTS, VIDEO/AUDIO SYNC RIGHTS, ET AL. EVERYONE GAINS WITH WHITNEY'S DEATH - EXCEPT WHITNEY. NO DOUBT SONY/RCA COULD PAY OFF A MEMBER IN HER CAMP TO SNUFF HER OUT AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE AN ACCIDENTAL MIX OF DRUGS. WITH HER RELAPSING LAST FEW WEEKS IT MAKES IT LOOK OBVIOUS SHE DID IT HERSELF. THEN CLIVE DAVIS GOES ON WITH PRE-GRAMMY PARTY WITH WHITNEY'S DEAD BODY UPSTAIRS AT THE HILTON. WHITNEY WAS HIS MOST PROFITABLE ARTIST MAKING OVER $2 BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE LABEL IN HER CAREER TO DATE. SMH. AS CHAKA KHAN SAID IN CNN INTERVIEW, SHE WAS TOLD BY A PAST MGR THAT SHE WAS WORTH MORE DEAD THAN ALIVE. #TRUTH!!

OMG!.......PEOPLE OUT THERE!....WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!! Your beloved Witney died of an O.D.! There was drugs and alcohol in her hotel room. We all know she was addicted to drugs and was a crack head. Let it go. She is in a better place now. This was her choice. MOVE ON!!!

Only 10% of cocaine addicts have a full recovery and never go back to any drug or alcohol. She was not one of those 10%. She was a complete and utter addict, period. She died by her own sword. Let the addict face herself in her own suicide.

wow    

It seems unlikely Whitney was drinking both beer and champagne. The meal would indicate serving for two.

People need to be more compassionate of others who suffer from the disease of addiction. Admittedly, I was once intolerant and afraid of addicts and drunks. However, I'm now educated on the perils of addiction and the emotional pain that causes people to self medicate.
Having lost a dear friend eleven years ago and who came to me in a dream just last night, I can attest that we all know or will know someone coping with addiction. We need to let go of the stigma and name calling and help each other out before addiction takes over. Remember MJ saying "I hurt" in those tapes. Deep down that's how most addicts feel. They're trying to compensate for physical and emotional trauma or abuse. The truth is we're losing too many wonderful people to addiction.

I doubt she was murdered. It was the combination of drugs and alcohol. Lethal mixture.
