Whitney Houston Death Probe Over; Release Of Full Toxicology & Autopsy Report Imminent (EXCLUSIVE)
UPDATE: As we reported exclusively, the 42-page report was released. One key note: the coroner confirms that a white powder substance was found in the room, along with a "white cystal-like substance." More details here.
The Los Angeles County coroner's office is preparing to release its full report into the death of singer Whitney Houston as soon as Wednesday afternoon, Celebuzz has learned.
Multiple sources inside the coroner’s office have confirmed that the investigation into the diva’s bathtub drowning is finally complete — almost two months after she died, on Feb. 12 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in in Beverly Hills, Calif.
“The preliminary release (on March 22) was the initial finding of the the L.A. County Department of the Coroner,” one source told Celebuzz.
“What is going to come out now is the investigators’ report, detailing the full autopsy, toxicology, neurology and other elements — it’s the whole big thing.”
Another source said: “The reports are ready, but we’re not sure when they are to be released — today or tomorrow.”
All physicians and pharmacies with ties to Houston were contacted as part of the probe, sources added. Family members were also interviewed as part of the death investigation.
In its initial report, the official cause of death for Houston, 48, was listed as drowning and "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."
In addition to the coroner, the Beverly Hills Police Department is investigating.
It has not responded to our request for comment, though in a statement to Celebuzz on March 30, Lt. Mark Rosen said the “investigation is still open pending receipt of the final report from the Coroner’s office.”
