The L.A. County Coroner's findings on Whitney Houston's death has not settled the case -- by a long shot.  Fingers are pointing in all directions, casting blame. 

So we gotta ask ...

The only person to blame is herself. She bought her drugs and used her hands or whatever to inject or nose to snort.

She may be responsible for her death by making the choice to snort her final line, but that doesn't take away from the fact that somebody snorted along with her that final day and then tried to cover it up. Probably the same person who sold the dead Whitney photo to the media for cash. My guess is her daughter, which is why the family is keeping it all hush hush and not investigating the matter further. If I was a part of my mom's final deadly coke binge, I would feel guilty as hell, but dear soulless Bobbi just feels wealthy as a result.

Alot of those question are fu*in stupid. "Whitney's life tragic or successful"? WTF YOU THINK. Whoever gave her the coke right before her death which causeed a herat attack which made her fall and drown and then tried to clean it up (which is tapering) should be responsible for her death. THIS IS A MURDER and is like Murray giving Micheal Propofol before he died. Yes she is to blame for taking it but the person who gave it to her is guilty also just like Murray is.

The enablers of her marijuana and cocaine are responsible.If there were no enablers she would be alive.Yes,everybody say "she's grown,she did what she want"but the enablers get the drugs for her.Her death is still suspicious.

The enablers are like the parents that know their child is overweight or obese but still feed/buys them Mcdonalds,pizza,donuts,and other fast foods.

I suspect the vast majority of people AREN'T surprised about the actual cause of Whitney Houston's death. It's obvious that she took her "PHENOMENAL" vocal talent for "granted" and when she "SCREWED IT UP", she WASN'T prepared to "FACE THE REALITY" of her "fading" super stardom. In many ways, she seemed to be somewhat of a "PERFECTIONIST" and it was becoming "harder and harder" for her to live with "ANY" performance that was less than what she achieved at the PINNACLE OF HER SUCCESS. Unfortunately, this poor woman used drugs and alcohol to "insulate" herself from the "harshness of life" to her detriment. As a very well respected music legend stated in a interview, "There are some places you can visit, but can't live there"!!! Denying the "GRAVITY" of her addictions was her "UNDOING AND HERS ALONE"!!!

As much as Bobby Brown is a loser, he's not to blame. The only one to blame is Whitney. Sad as it is, it's the addicts fault. Unless someone else forced them to take drugs it's the addict who is responsible. That is not an easy realization to come to. Parents blame themselves and so on but ultimately it is the responsibility of the addict to come clean. = All in all addiction funking eats big moose balls.

Truth    

THE PERSON WHO SOLD THE WHITNEY PHOTO WAS RAFFLES VAN EXEL NOT BOBBI-KRIS. IT'S BEEN PROVEN WITH AN EYEWITNESS FROM THE WHIGHAM FUNERAL HOME. WHY IS TMZ NOT TALKING ABOUT RAFFLES VAN EXEL AKA RAFFLES DAWSON AKA RAFFLES BENSON? ACCORDING TO ROGER FRIENDMAN RAFFLES SOLD BOGUS FOTOS TO TMZ AS WELL. IT WAS NOT WHITNEY UNDER THE SHEETS IN THE HALLWAY BUT KRISSI. SHE WAS TRYING TO HIDE FROM THE PAPS WHEN SHE HAD HER ANXIETY ATTACK. WHEN THEY PUSH HER INTO THE AMBULANCE YOU SEE KRISSI POP HER HEAD OUT, NOT THE DEAD BODY OF WHITNEY. MAYBE THAT'S WHY HARVEY REFUSES TO TALK ABOUT THIS GUY? RAFFLES IS A HOLLYWOOD CON-ARTIST WHO MOOCHES OFF BLACK CELEBS FOR YEARS. RAFFLES IS KNOWN TO DEAL IN DRUGS TO THE HOLLYWOOD CROWD. HE, PAT HOUSTON, AND GARY HOUSTON WERE THE FIRST ONES INTO WHITNEY'S SUITE AND THEN *ONLY* ONES ALLOWED. RAFFLES BRAGGED HE FOUND WHITNEY DEAD AND EVEN TOLD QUINCY JONES WHILST TRYING TO SIT AT DEAD WHITNEY'S TABLE ON THE NIGHT OF THE CLIVE PARTY. RAY J DEALS MOSTLY IN WEED. RAY J GAVE HER THE WEED AND RAFFLES THE COKE. THEN TRIED COVERING IT UP. HE SAID ON DUTCH TV HE WAS PACKING HER STUFF AFTER SHE DIED. GARY AND PAT HOUSTON WERE SEEN TAKING LUGGAGE AND WHITNEY'S AFFECTS OUT OF HER SUITE. RAFFLES WORKED FOR PAT HOUSTON AT THAT TIME. RAFFLES HAS SINCE DISAPPEARED AFTER THE FUNERAL. HMM. #TRUTH!!

how is her death suspicious? she's been a known drug addict for years and her toxicology report says she had xanax AND cocaine in her system...the combination can give anyone a heart attack but especially her after all her years of abusing drugs.
nobody is to blame except whitney, I love her & her music is great, but she took drugs way before bobby brown was in the picture and we ALL know what happens when we take drugs

Hey... this is for the "Don't Silence The Truth" dude.
All I have to say is... you've got quite the imagination.

And that's the TRUTH!!

People need to realize and come to terms with the fact that Whitney was a grown woman who chose to do drugs. She could have just as easily chose to go into rehab, commit to it and stop using. She is responsible for her own death. Sure there are drug dealers out there, but they need a customer to stay in business. They may try to get someone to do drugs, but I have never heard of one that follows celebrities around everywhere they go and shoves the drugs down their throat or up their nose.

Goes to show how powerful drug addiction can be. Everyone thinks it will never happen to me, whats one time? Sadly we don't hear about the regular people that die of this on a daily basis. Its sad but true. No one is to blame but her. She was a grown woman who knew the dangers. She saw many of her peers die of overdoses, and mixing the wrong things.

Why can't people be held responsible for their own actions any more?
