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.

I believe there was foul play in her death and it needs to be investigated further. I believe the sister-n-law is involved - they need to look at her financial situation and see if she had a huge policy on Whitney. I believe the room setting was staged to look like she was using - who's to say someone didn't put coke in her food or drink... Most of all how is it possible the water temp was 93 degrees 6 hours later - I mean REALLY!!! The truth will come to light and I am praying they find the TRUTH!!! I am praying for Ms Cissy Houston and Bobbi-Kristina. Like Bobby Browns sister stated earlier - Bobbi-Kristina is in danger ans should trust no one but her Grandmother, Father and her Aunt Leolah!!!

Whitney's death is going to be like Michael Jackson's death... talking about it for a year or more. It gets annoying too. With all do respect, it was obvious she died of overdose. Doesn't take a genius to figure that out.

Whitney's sister in law said that Whitney never takes a bath in hotel showers. She fears them for some reason, or another. That goes on to tell you something right there. Somebody's bluffing.

Yet we continue to glorify these stars and try to blame someone else for something that was clearly their own decision. Time to move on.

For some reason the report doesn't necessarily support cocaine overdose. It sounds more like MURDER COVER UP, and pocketing money, while hushing the family up, to prevent a scandal. We all know Whitney like others has ups & downs, but this was just plain bizarre. GOD don't UGLY and he ain't FOND of cute either. 1st Corinthians 15:33 says: BAD ASSOCIATION SPOILS USEFUL HABITS.

I think we know enough about Whiney and her death to let it rest. All we hear does not make or break her. She's dead, let her be.

she was a person who was addicted to drugs, who tried and failed to live life without drugs. She was also a person who brought joy to others by sharing her God given gift-her voice-can't we all just be thankful and pray for her family now?

Where was her family? Why didn't anyone commit her? Why wasn't she prosecuted and sent to jail. She would still be alive.

EDITA ON STEROIDS    

read the FULL autopsy
she ingested cocaine and went into cardiac arrest, not because of the cocaine ingested but because of her arteries being in poor shape from chronic cocaine use, this heart attack along with the affects from the prescription pills caused her to fall into the tub of hot running water, she hit her face causing her nose to bleed, cut her lip, and bruised her clavicle and breast. She had burns on her back because the water was so hot. She was not murdered, she had a heart attack and fell into the tub face first. THE END.

Roxanne, you write like an intelligent woman so let me just ask-have you seen any of the footage of Whitney done in, oh, let's say THE PAST 4-5 YEARS??? She was not, has not been and most likely wasn't clean for longer than a few hours in over a decade. Face facts, it makes reality very colorful. It is not necessary to dwell in a fairyland in order to cope. Truly.
