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.

I am really surprised to see phone numbers in that autopsy report. We should all call Kristy McCrackin (funny name) and say hi.

This such a fabracated lie. If this was true the information of this knowledge would had been released in the very early stages of the investigation. But since Whitney was a well known drug(cocaine)addicit who got clean her death ruled as accidental was not exploitation enough people in certain positions could not make any money off her death. So for those who will gain from the sensational press release can keep the story line going This woman could not just die with a clean slate, she had to die with found cocaine in her system, a spoon in her room well that ment she was shooting up cocaine which vain did she shoot it up in. It took this long for that lie to come out who paid for the lies and how much money was paid out and which reporter or mag or media company willgain constant previews of this trash. Lies do sell don't they.

The generic name for Benadryl is Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride which is also used as a "non-prescription sleep aid." It's an antihistamine with SEDATIVE PROPERTIES.

When people say their cold medicine makes them drowsy, it's from the diphenhydramine in the antihistamine they've taken.

Why are they showing a Commercial Real Estate Property in White Plains NY as her Address of Residence?

How come they didn't find the spoon before? What will they find next? To me, ther's more to the story than meets the eye. I personally think Whitney was murdered and Clive Davis and Ray J had something to do with it. Everybody that signs with Clive Davis ends up dead now isn't that coincident. First Phyllis Hyman, now Whitney and they both died of drugs. They both died broken hearted from the pain they were going through.

Its sad she had to die from the disease of addiction. Whitney was a great artist and from watching interviews on tv I know she was saved and knew the lord. People should not judge, I sure some out there posting have some kind of addiction. You know she is in alot better place this world.RIP ~Whitney~
