L.A. Coroner's Whitney Report

Drug Spoon & Coke Found,

Possible Overdose

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

0404_whitney_report
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.

Gwen, please get help now. There may be time to reorganise your thought process. Seriously, I am not picking on you-but as one human to another, you are not thinking clearly. Or do you snorty/smokey yourself? Ever felt yourself losing altitude while bathing? Wear alot of wigs? Write letters to Elvis? Met Peter Pan? Keep your pinky fingernail really long? Have a hole in your nose?

Bonnie, Giiiirrrl, getta grip, Whitney hasn't been clean for YEARS. More than 4 hours go by an that girl be in a real bad way. Sure she shoot it up, smoke it up and snort it up-and any other way she can manage to ingest it! Are you for real? Can this be why Whitney got no rehab?? Just in case you have offspring one day, please, do some reading. Honestly, thinking that Whitney ever stopped using is like feeling that you might fall off the earth if you stand in the wrong spot. Being naive may seem cute, but it can be very dangerous.

this page is just totally awful, with zero compassion, understanding or sympathy. NONE OF US knows what happened in her life to create the black hole drugs fill up for people. When you judge others and point your finger see that 3 point back at you. I AM NOT SUPPORTING DRUG USE-I am merely saying that she deserved treatment and empathy, did not need condemnation from those lacking knowledge about addiction. Perhaps if people were not so harsh and quick to judge, people with addictions would be more willing to seek treatment and be truthful! Entertainers are people, people have problems. Be human or you just might find yourself in a vulnerable place. The Universe has an amusing way of teaching us lessons.
ALSO-It is sickening that anyone having more morals than a rancid peanut asked about her pubic area. How YOU and YOUR KIND dare pass judgement on anyone is ludicrous. dogsRbetter (and in your case this is especially so!)

dierdre, gotta strongly disagree here. I feel that she led herself toward death by using. But what really killed her was the SILENCE, DENIAL, COVER-UP and SUPPORT of her lack of treatment by those in her "group" still sucking from her juglar, either for fame, fortune, shared dope, or maybe just a quickie in the alley...had to get there eventually! Not even Oprah had the B_L_S to confront her during the interview. WHY??? Well, she might get mad, walk off the set, ruin the ratings for the interview, etc., etc. All the hangers on, so quick to rush around, on camera, when she died, and not one could tell her the truth? Not one got an interview to say PLEASE, treat her, or ARREST her, or DO SOMETHING, Anything, before it's too late! NO ONE said STOP LOOKING THE OTHER WAY, CLIVE, STOP PRETENDING all is well, you entertainment whores, YOU PSYCHIC, QUIT ACTING as if there's goiong to be a comeback, her behavior is not bizare and take action to save her life!!! Now, let's see if the family can leverage a new fortune from her corpse like the Jacksons have. This they might seek advice for. The both of them needed TREATMENT, not publicity, not a new concert tour, not a renegotiated contract. dogsRbetter

oh, MY-goodness gracious and ME-o-MY, are we all just SO shocked? PULL-EEEZE! When she did the interview with Oprah, after she "got clean", man she was lying her ASS off!!! This dame ain't been clean since...well, let's just be kind and say since she met the Brown smear. Can everyone just get real=or at least make an attempt. This cycle of denial, regret, relapse, more denial, ad nauseum, is why so many talented people in this country are steps from death. Get a Grip, Grow Up, stop trying to save face and save your kids! Whitney's mom, yeah, you, do share some guilt here. Someone should have been on this girl continuously as soon as you pried the Brown smear off her cash, er, I mean her, uh, money, no, duh, I mean her heart. We ALL watched Anna Nicole crash and burn, SOMEbody knew Heath, River, etc., etc. were going down in flames...STOP the madness and your lying and denial. This gal had some MAJOR, DEEP ISSUES to throw away what she had, and hiding it don't make it go away! SHE picked Brown smear-WHY? thought that was all she deserved? GET REAL-she will have died in vain if you continue to play the "oh, my, just do not understand"-THAT is why she's DEAD! She could not get real-but you can! (speaking here to her family) There is no one to protect anymore. THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE, and it never kills you. so sad, too bad if this upsets you...maybe getting good and mad will help. dogsRbetter

just want to comment on whitney houston's death. the whole world knew that she had a drug and booze addiction, but there could be other reasons besides that for why she ddied. she has always been taken advantaged of by bobby brown and lot of the people who knew her. that could cause alot of stress and anexiety attacks. alot of singers can't handle the stress of being famous, all of the big crowds, alot of noice and all the people who want their autographs. whitney was the greatest performer in the world. let her rest in peace now. she has had alot of problems in her life, she deserves the pease and let her memory live on in her daughter and her music. she is sadly missed.

Please tell me where in the report it say that the white powdery substance and white crystal like substance tested positive for cocaine. For I read the report I did not see any stating that fact. Maybe you can answer these questions that I have..


Why was bathroom floor covered with water when the water was shut off?
Why was bedroom carpet soaked with water?
superficial abrasions to the left side of forehead (How did she obtain these abrasions)
Superficial abrasion to the left side of bridge of her nose, how?
Superficial abrasion to the top of her right shoulder, how?
Superficial abrasion to her outer lower left arm, how?
Minor abrasions to the top of her left hand between the middle and ring, how?
Why didn't Pat Houston answer whitney's calls?
It was customery for Pat Houston to check in with Whitney, which she didn't do that day per her interview with oprah, Why?
Why did someone in Whitney room hang up 3 times when an employee from the hotel called?
Who just runs hot water for a bath than gets in (just because your high doesn't mean you won't feel pain, Richard Pryor prime example)
Why would Whitney put away the mirror in the drawer and not bother to put away the spoon?
report says that there was an ash tray filled with cigarette butts on bathroom counter, TMZ picture shows ash tray on the bathroom floor?
Three tables with food and beer, who else was in that room? no Alcohol found in Ms. Houston system
