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.

Wow, what a news flash. No kidding, Whitney Houston was wasted stayed wasted right up till her death. Trying to cover up the obvious still doesn't work. Whitney Houston found dead in hotel room bathtub. Public opinion she overdosed. Let the spin begin to try and cover up the obvious.

Wasn't reported after the police investigated the room that they found nothing to indicate foul play,sucide... That it appeared to be an accident. They didn't metion the drug spoon with a white substance in it, until now. Why? From the sound of it the investigators knew right away. Spoon, white substance, blood from nose, it is interesting that now the news is brought out about the spoon and not before.

Why would she have rolled up paper and a spoon? I thought that she had smoked when she used cocaine. I have no idea what really happened but this is one of those strange cases like Anna Nicole or Michael Jackson where there are shady people around and the person is worth more dead than alive to some people.

Her death was not investigated properly, every day the story changes. First there was no crack, now there is crack along with spoons and everything else under the sun. Are people really reading what is being reported on TMZ and on the coroner's report, if you were you would see all of the inconsistencies in this case. People can set you up to make it look like anything happened, and plant any type of evidence on you that they want, especially if you had substance abuse problems in the PAST. Its a shame how they are portaying Whitney and her family, people need to stop assuming the worst and a proper investigation needs to be done.
