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.

Was it crack cocaine? Because you know that crack is whack. Goodbye dopper, maybe they buried you with a bag or two to help you across the river stiks, dope taken fool.

FOUL! This story keeps changing every day. From the very beginning they claimed NO illegal drugs were found, now that the toxicology results have been released all of a sudden cocaine was allegedly found. Something is suspect or either they REALLY are doing an investigation and trying to prevent folk from covering up the LIES.

Sad for her that she couldn't conquer that addiction. She's in a much better place now. If ray j had anything to do with supplying her, hope it's exposed.

IT'S IRONIC THAT TMZ AINT CONCENTRATING ON ONE NAME RAFFLES VAN EXEL WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SUPPLYING AND REMOVING COKE AND OTHER ITEMS FROM THE HOTEL SUITE. STRANGE HOW EVERY MAJOR SITE HAS MENTIONED HIM EXCET FOR RAFFLES.. WHY??? CUZ RAFFLES IS TMZ'S SOURCE ON ALL ITEMS "WHITNEY HOUSTON" PRIOR TO HER DEATH!!! #TRUTH!!

There is no cocaine to remove if you snort it all up. Or in Blohan's case, dump it all over your shoes and get kicked out of a house party.

I'm trying to figure out why her family can say Bobby Brown is a bad influence because of his DUI. A mother having cocaine around her daughter is not a good influence. And friends/family that allow it to go on, they are not a good influence. This daughter has had nothing but bad influences around her.

So they don't have house keepers cleaning the room? Why is there powder still left in the room? Don't make sense.

TMZ is not telling us who put that Coke in Whitney's room. Unless, it was a Coca-Cola that she bought from the Convient Store. Then I wouldn't worry about it.

I think that the Houston and "Aunt Mary" were trying to pin all of this on that Raffles guy. Sorry, but it just seems that the Raffles person is being used as a scapegoat. Too many rumors around one person at one time seems a bit suspicious to me. Like something is being hidden. Was Whitney given the drug by members of the family to keep her in line? Were they hoping she would overdose? I just think that the rumors are manufactured to hide the Houston's family guilt and culpability in all of this.
