Coroner: Drowning, Drugs Killed Whitney Houston

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has finally released the toxicology report in Whitney Houston's death shortly before the Grammys last month, and it both is and is not a surprise.

According to Yahoo, the coroner says Houston, who was found in the bathtub of her fourth-floor room in the Beverly Hilton the afternoon of February 11, died from drowning, artheriosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.

Besides cocaine and metabolites, which the coroner specifically mentioned contributing to Houston's death, a number of other drugs were found in her system: Marijuana, alprazolam (Xanax), cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and diphenhydramine (Benadryl), the report said.

Rocks Off can't say this news comes as a surprise, but it is still a shame. Except for the specific drugs (and maybe the heart disease), it's amazing how clear all that stuff still seems even six weeks after it happened.

The Monday after Houston died, Houston R&B singer Azaryah Davidson called us and told us about being in Houston's entourage during her "Nothing But Love 2010 European tour. Davidson said that as far as he could tell, the singer seemed clean and sober, and spent most of her time away from the stage swimming in the hotel pool.

"She had a clear head," he said. "You could tell when you talked to her."

Even before the results were released, we all speculated that drugs has something to do with her death. Yes, this is not a shocker for many but hopefully this serves as a lesson for those abusing prescription drugs.

It is still unacceptable for me to know that she is killed for drug-abuse. OM! This evil planet.

What is interesting to note is now that the cause of the singer’s death has become public various tribes are busily trying to paint a picture they had no idea she was back on drugs (Cissy), that others are to blame (specifically Ray J- Whitney's boyfriend) or that there may have indeed been other mystery players involved, which may or may not be true and which may or may not absolve parties close to home who should of have known or did know or just chose conveniently to step out of the way(or even participate?)....that plus the fact this may ultimately be a clever pr campaign to distance the singer from the fact that she died being a junkie.
