Whitney Houston's Death

Sources Say Cocaine Removed

From Singer's Hotel Room

3/22/2012 4:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected to Whitney Houston who were with Whitney the day she died tell TMZ ... an individual removed all traces of cocaine from the room before authorities arrived.

The Coroner's Office says Whitney used cocaine "immediately prior to her collapse."  Investigators who arrived on scene found no traces of cocaine or any other illegal substance.

One source who is extremely close to the situation tells us ... the individual who removed the cocaine was also the person who supplied it to Whitney.

As we previously reported, other items were removed from the room as well, including bed sheets.

The Beverly Hills PD just told TMZ ... its investigation is not closed.  Cops will not comment on whether they are looking at evidence tampering.

Wasn't she telling everyone who would listen that she was clean, surprise, surprise, she wasn't and no one killed her except herself.

Linds wants to know if she can have one of her assistants swing by and pick up the leftover coke.

Why aren't the family, friends, etc., commenting on this ? I mean, she was surrounded by people willing to supply her cocaine, willing to remove evidence from the room after she died, and nobody got her away from these parasites?

This is really sad! The person that supplied it to her was someone close to her? It's not their fault, but I hope they feel bad for enabling her. And all the doctor(s) who prescribed her these pills

Why hasn't the person who removed the coke arrested yet for tampering with a crime scene? Glad she's gone, one more coke head looser who is no longer roaming the earth. Great couple of years, some real winners are gone and the world's biggest pedophile (michael jackson) as well.

Sounds like it may have been the sister-in-law/manager/enabler/gravy-train-passenger that got rid of the coke evidence. Whoever it was, was probably used to cleaning up her mess, and didn't think twice about doing it. Whitney Houston might still be alive today if her family and friends stood up to her and got her into treatment, instead of enabling her and getting her drugs. They most likely knew if she got sober she'd stop throwing her money around to the nearest person ready to catch it.

So the drugs were removed from the scene, and I read also the bed sheets were removed. It was odviously someone close to her, its sad that people close to her enabled her, instead of helping her. Yes I know she was a drug addict, but its still sad that Whitney is gone. RIP beautiful Angel.

Probably her sister in law or brother. Her sister in law looks like a lowlife, I wouldn't be surprised if she was the one who also sold that casket picture to the Enquirer. Whitney only kept a small circle and info was always leaked to the press she never wondered how? It could have only been those people she kept close who disgustingly enough were her own family. If you saw the sister in law on Oprah you can see that she's shady.

Maybe the guy was just trying to tidy up hoping the media wouldn't be a bunch of parasites and strip Whitney of her dignity by making her death a headline.

Fortunately we live in a classy society where that kind of sh*t would never be done to turn a buck.
