Whitney Houston

No Foul Play in Death

Accidental Drowning

EXCLUSIVE

Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston
died from an accidental drowning, and there was no foul play involved, according to the Beverly Hills Police Dept. which just closed the case.

The BHPD has been investigating Whitney's death since Feb 11 -- 2 months ago to the day.

As we reported, the BHPD never believed anyone took cocaine from her hotel room because they found the cocaine residue and powder inside Whitney's room at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills.

Cocaine was a contributing factor in the singer's death ... so says the L.A. County Coroner.

Did she really fall into a scorching hot tub with the water running and her skin was peeling off as it boiled?

Didn't her last meal in the bathroom contain chicken? So there was some "foul" play in the minutes before her death.

"Accidental Drowning"? Please...you make it sound like she was frolicking in the bath tub and went too far into the deep end. Then again...when you're that f*cked up on cocaine maybe you oughta bathe with a life jacket on.

No foul play....as long as you don't count a family of hangers on enabling her brand of addiction. As long as they're getting paid, they're

"Sure Whitney; I worry about you Hon, but...whatever. It's your life. I support your tiny steps to get better. Now, can you cut me a check?"

I AM MAD AT WHITNEY HOUSTON for not caring about her daughter enough to keep her nose clean, so to speak. No child, even if she is 18 or 19 deserves to become motherless for no excuse other then Mom could not keep her nose out of the coke. W.H. did not HAVE to die, she CHOSE to die. Just sad.

Why still beating this dead horse? There was never any foul play. Houston was wasted right up until she was found dead. That's her legacy. Still can't spin, blame, sugarcoat what she herself did.


Is this an insurance thing? Ruled accidental policy pays.

If a driver has a fatal heart attack and then crashes and burns to death, the cause of death would be heart attack. Why is this different?
