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.

How many daisies did you go thru to come the the conclusion that cocaine was found in the room?

Ask the Tootsie Roll Owl.

You know, it annoys me how Whitney's family blamed Bobby Brown for her drug use. HELLO! People in life make their own choices. It's so much easier to point fingers than to realize this woman had control over herself and was STILL doing drugs while she was NOT with Bobby Brown anymore. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

@repicturesrus seems like such a tragedy that the celebrities have chosen this lifestyle and don't really realize how it can cause the celebrities to self destruct.
I would really like to see more healthy celebrities on the front pages of the newspapers.

I guess what has happened to Whitney was gonna happen anyway. Whether Bobby Brown had anything to do with it or not. It's a force that comes at you from all angles of life. If it don't get you one way, it will get you another.
Somebody enchanted Whitney. They did Michael Jackson the same way. You don't know who might be hating on you. I'd rather be a millionaire door to door salesman, or a work at home dad, than to be a multi-millionaire celebrity. Around all this "Hateration" And it ain't nothing to joke about like Lil Wayne and T.I. be doing. These haters can hurt you. for real, for real. I never trusted exposing myself in front of too many ppl. And don't be something that draws ppl. of the opposite sex, they will really enchant you.

The Beverly Hills PD are forgetting something - they need to find who provide Whitney with the cocaine as it DID contribute to her death. This is manslaughter at least....I smell a coverup.

So what you are saying is that you reported incorrect information to your viewers and readers that coke was taken by someone close. Now you know that wasnt true. A real journalist, not someone who likes to say "back in the day" a lot, checks several sources before reporting the news..
