Whitney Houston autopsy reveals drowning

According to reports released yesterday by coroner officials, Whitney Houston’s death was caused by accidental drowning in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11, 2012. Autopsy results revealed the singer suffered from atherosclerotic heart disease, which occurs when the body’s vital arteries become hardened from plaque build-up and is often associated with blocking blood flow to the heart. The toxicology findings also “suggested chronic usage” of cocaine, which was said to be a contributing factor in her death because the drug can constrict blood vessels and reduce blood flow. Several other illegal and prescription drugs were reportedly found in her system as well, including marijuana and Xanax. The heart condition combined with Houston’s drug abuse were said to lead to the subsequent drowning. The coroner’s findings maintain that no trauma or foul play is suspected and the full report is expected to be released in the next couple weeks.

    She drowned in a bath of coke, weed, Xanax, and other illegal prescription $h*t.

    I’d like to feel bad for this person, but I don’t. She had plenty opportunity, support, and financial resources available to set her life straight. She chose not to, and choose not to feel sorry for her.

    When your high and stupidly full of drugs anything can happen. I really feel sorry for her and the people that tried to help her. In the end though it was only her that could of helped herself. I blame all this shit influence on Bobby Shit head Brown anyways. With out him directing her down a fucked up path she would of still been alive. If she were my sister Bobby boy would of had a talking too before all this happened. R.I.P Whitney you will be missed. 🙁
