Yesterday, Whitney Houston’s final autopsy report was released to the media.
Whitney died as the result of accidental drowning, meaning there was enough water in her lungs to interfere with the delivery of oxygen to her brain. The singer’s entourage found her face down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 11.
According to the report, Whitney’s drowning death was preceded by a cocaine overdose. Cocaine was found in her system, and cocaine residue was found on a spoon and on a rolled up sheet of paper in her hotel suite.
Someone supplied Whitney with that cocaine, since she obviously didn’t procure it for herself. Many in the industry believe a close friend of hers supplied her with the drug.
Whitney was a chronic cocaine snorter, as evidenced by the finding of a perforated posterior septum, which means a hole in her nose caused by chronic cocaine use.
Whitney was also vain about her appearance. The coroner had to pry a brown lacefront wig off her head which was “firmly attached to her hair.”
The coroner’s report also noted Whitney’s McGhan breast implants (size: 230 cc).
A sex assault kit was performed on Whitney in the hotel room where she died. If she had sex prior to her death, semen might have been collected. But that’s not likely since she was found submerged in water.
