L.A. Coroner's Whitney Report

Drug Spoon & Coke Found,

Possible Overdose

4/5/2012 2:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A "spoon with a white crystal-like substance on it" and a "white powdery substance" -- which we know was later tested and determined to be cocaine -- was found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died ... this according to the singer's final autopsy report.

The report, which gives a detailed description of Whitney's room when officials arrived, says "Located on the south portion of the counter was a small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper, along with other miscellaneous items."

"Located in the top drawer, in the north side of the counter were remnants of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base." Officials found more white powder on the base of the mirror.

The report also states, "[Whitney] possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol."

According to the report, Whitney's body was discovered FACE DOWN in the bath tub ... with a "bloody purge coming from her nose." Officials say there were no signs of foul play.

The report notes Whitney had a history of substance abuse ... which was evident by a "perforation of posterior nasal septum."

The singer's official cause of death is listed as accidental drowning -- but heart disease and "chronic" cocaine use were contributing factors.

The report notes ... when officials discovered the body, Whitney was wearing a brown wig "tightly attached to the hair."

As TMZ previously reported, Whitney had cocaine in her system at the time of her death -- which tests showed she used immediately prior to her death.

Officials say Houston also had traces of marijuana in her system ... as well as Xanax (anxiety medication), Flexeril (muscle relaxer) and Benadryl (allergy medication).

As we previously reported, Whitney was found dead in a bathtub on Feb.11 at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

It took weeks to identify Whitney's coke spoon. They thought it was a fireplace shovel.

Every day something new appears in Whitney's room, sounds so inaccurate and manufactured. What will they find next, a partridge in a pear tree?

A syringe, a bong, some psychedelic mushrooms, several doobies, a small meth lab in the closet were also found - come to think about it... :-))

It's possible she was in the water/bathing... when the affects of the overdose took place... she may have tried to get out of the water and instead slipped down face first in the water. These things happen pretty quickly.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't know why this keeps popping up in headlines. everyone knew coke was going to have been a factor in her death. Lets move on to something more important, like the the Kardashian whores.

She had YEARS to get her S#!t together and failed. Just natural selection at work helping to thin the recalcitrant Hollywood herd with the "it wont happen to me" attitude. Next....
