Whitney Houston's Death

Sources Say Cocaine Removed

From Singer's Hotel Room

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.

She never really gave up coke and the proof is that how can you not leave your mom something? Good Riddance.

why would anyone remove her bedsheets? That's pretty odd. Any thoughts anyone?

So, cocaine and marijuana were found in her system? And evidence was removed from her room PRIOR to the arrival of the first responders? That kind of narrows down who's responsible, doesn't it? It seems to me that someone close to Whitney had to be the one(s) responsible for her having these drugs on hand. Or, they know who did it.


Whoever it is should be held accountable by the law - I don't care who they are, whether a fellow celebrity or someone else. This is tantamount to murder.

Leolah Brown is on Dr. Drew tonite setting it off, she said Ray Jay was not Whitney's boyfriend but a drug runner, and other explosive reports, I am shocked, they got all the relatives on this show tonite from Bobby Brown's family, the police need to talk to them

I know somebody that said that his sister was staying at that same hotel while Whitney was there and they saw her by the pool. They came closer to ask for an autograph and picture and she was acting all crazy. (high out of her mind) She was also talking to herself.

The person who gave coke to her should be held responsible for her death. They obviously tampered with a crime scene cleaning it up. THIS IS A MURDER!! Just like MJ who was given Propofol by Murray because he wanted it Whitney was given coke cuz she wanted it and her killer should be charged with MURDER.

The Houston family make Dr. Murray seem like a saint. Wonder of they will all be charged with manslaughter?

OMG people (world)! The doctors said that she had cocaine, marijuana and perscription drugs in her system, but they did not contribute to her death. Are you kidding me??? I'm sorry, but ANYONE that was or is on any kind of drug that impairs you and then gets into a bathtub, pool, jacuzzi etc... is an idiot!!! I am sorry that she is gone, because the world has lost ANOTHER gifted person, but I can only hope that anyone with an addiction can learn and wake up and realize that there is help out there. Even if things are bad, drugs are NOT the answer, just another problem.
