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.

The only one who cares is the Insurance Company if Houston had a life insurance policy. Possibly not being Clive Davis had been paying her bills for years.

Don't no of any insurance company that will pay out on suicide, accidental death caused from alcohol and drug overdose or combo (giving her publically known many years of drug and alcohol abuse right up to her death). Maybe they are not buying the bad heart "Accidental" BS.

Who didnt think the death was Cocaine related? And people when you relapse you would have stopped using at some point. Whitney never stopped,,so no relapse.

The SPOON was used to reach in the bag that guy that run off had to get COKE out of. That is if there's no burn marks on the spoon.

A common swank way of getting the coke out to snort.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. This is what happens when you become your own druggist. Whitney may be known by her soundbite "Crack is Whack!"...but c'mon...face down in the bathtub? One has to wonder how many laps she swam before going under.

I thought she died on Feb 11, 2012??? One part of the report states a date of 10 Feb 2012 that the chief corner/medical examiner requested a criminalist respond to a death scene... and this was the investigators report.
