Whitney Houston’s causes of death identified: cocaine use and drowning


March 23, 2012/11.48

Los Angeles County Coroner spokesman Craig Harvey has announced the cause of death of singer Whitney Houston.
   ‘The final cause of death has been established as drowning due to artherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use,’ said Harvey. ‘Other drugs were identified during the toxicology process. Those drugs were all at the therapeutic or sub-therapeutic level. They are not considered to be related to the actual cause of death. Cocaine use indicated an acute use, and it appeared that the cocaine had been used in the time period just probably immediately prior to her collapse in the bathtub in the hotel.’
   Prescription medication had been found in Houston’s Beverly Hilton hotel room, but no cocaine was found.
