Whitney Houston’s autopsy has been released, revealing sad details about the day the singer died.
The 48-year-old diva was discovered face down in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton by her assistant, who had left to run an errand at a high end department store. Houston’s assistant and bodyguard pulled her from the water.
A “spoon with a white crystal like substance in it” was discovered in the room, as were “a plethora of prescription medication bottles” belonging to Houston and “multiple blister packs.” A “white powdery substance” was discovered on a portable mirror found in a drawer.
Houston died in February of “drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use,” according to a toxicology report. Cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs was present in Houston’s system at the time of her death.
Earlier this week, a first look at Houston’s performance in the film “Sparkle” was released, providing yet another sad reminder of a great talent lost too soon.
