The L.A. County Coroner has deemed Whitney Houston‘s official cause of death an accidental drowning, but according to their report, there were other factors that contributed to the demise of the legendary singer who appeared on Bravo‘s Being Bobby Brown. Read on for all the details, including the combination of drugs that were found in Houston’s system.
Officials have ruled that Whitney Houston’s death was caused by an accidental drowning, but heart disease and cocaine use also contributed to the “I Will Always Love You” singer’s untimely demise.
According to the L.A. County Coroner, in addition to cocaine, Houston also had traces of marijuana in her system, as well as the anxiety medication Xanax, Flexeril – a muscle relaxer, and Benadryl.
A source connected to the investigation tells TMZ that it’s “very possible” Whitney had a heart attack that caused her to lose consciousness and drown in the bathtub of her hotel room. The heart attack could have been triggered by the hardening of the arteries; a result of cocaine use.
Though several pills were found in Houston’s Beverly Hilton hotel room, including Xanax, Ibuprofen, and Midol, investigators found no evidence of cocaine on the scene.
In a statement released to the press, the Houston family says, “We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.”
