Whitney Houston

Cocaine Found in Hotel Room

3/30/2012 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Authorities recovered cocaine in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died.
Authorities recovered cocaine in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died ... TMZ has learned.

As for the quantity of cocaine that was found, official documents show one of the items police recovered was "white, powdery remnants." Sources tell us the powder was tested and it's cocaine.

We're told Beverly Hills detectives are NOT investigating rumors that someone removed cocaine from the room, because they're convinced it wasn't removed.

Sources directly involved in the investigation told TMZ early on ... no illegal drugs were recovered from the room. We have circled back with these sources who now tell us they were unaware at the time that cocaine was present.

Bottom line -- cops are in the final stages of their investigation, but they are not focusing on anyone who possibly removed cocaine, because authorities are in possession of the goods.

This is still going on why? She killed her voice long ago, and one night in a bath tub the rest of her body caught up.

Anyone interested in the death of Whitney Houston, or celebrity culture in general, owes it to themselves to google Raffles van Exel and find out what TMZ aren't telling you.
