As we continue to mourn the loss of one of the music’s greatest voices, details are starting to emerge about Whitney Houston‘s death, although we already knew that there was no foul play involved. Now, the coroner has told Whitney’s family that she did not die from drowning, but instead, the Being Bobby Brown star passed away from mixing prescription drugs and alcohol. Read on for more…
Whitney Houston’s family has told TMZ.com that the superstar singer did not die from drowning, but that the coroner’s office told them she passed from a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol. They went on to tell the family that there was not enough water in Whitney’s lungs to conclude that she drowned, but instead they feel that she was already dead when her head became submerged under water.
The family also revealed that it was Whitney Houston’s aunt, Mary Jones, that found the singer in the bathtub. Mary had laid out Whitney’s clothes for her and left for a little while, but when she returned, Whitney was not out of the bathroom. It was then that Mary entered and found her body. Mary tried to administer CPR, was unsuccessful.
Meanwhile, though TMZ may claim to have the inside scoop, the coroners office will not have the full toxicology results for quite a few weeks, so until then, there will be no official statement on the cause of the death. Whitney Houston is survived by her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who’s father is Whitney’s ex and former Bravo reality star, Bobby Brown.
