Coroner’s Final Report Shows Whitney Found Face-down in Bathtub, Cocaine in System
The details of Whitney Houston’s death as noted in the LA County Department of Coroner Final Report are quite different from initial information that was shared about the singer’s passing. Yesterday, E! News obtained the official report, and it reveals the sad circumstances of how Whitney was found.
The report states that she was discovered face-down in “extremely hot water,” and there was a scald burn on her back. A small spoon with a “white crystal like substance,” as well as a “white powdery substance” on the counter and a portable mirror with traces of the same powder on it were also found in the bathroom.
“possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol.”
Toxicology testing turned up cocaine, Benadril, the muscle relaxer Flexeril, marijuana, Xanax, cocaethylene (produced when cocaine mixes with alcohol) and benzoylecgonin (a primary metabolite of cocaine).
