An autopsy on the 48-year-old singer – who was found dead in the bath of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday (11.02.12) – has been completed and Los Angeles County Coroner officials have told her relatives that she did not drown.

Sources told TMZ.com that the coroner did not find enough water in Whitney’s lungs to suggest she died in the bath, but they believe her passing was a result of the combination of alcohol, Xanax and other prescription drugs she had taken.

It is believed that Whitney’s official cause of death will not be released for some time to allow police to complete investigations.

A source told RadarOnline.com: “The Beverly Hills Police Department has requested the Coroner’s Office put the results on a ‘security hold,’ because it could hamper their ongoing investigation.”

Whitney’s mother reportedly plans to have the singer’s body flown back to Atlanta tomorrow (14.02.12) now the autopsy is complete.

Original Story:

Whitney Houston reportedly died in the bath after a 48-hour alcohol binge.

The 48-year-old singer – who battled drink and drug addiction in the past – was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room on Saturday (11.02.12) afternoon and she is thought to have passed out before slipping under the water.

She was discovered by her hairdresser - one of several members of her entourage in other parts of her fourth-floor suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel – with half a dozen bottles of prescription drugs including Lorazepam, Valium and Xanax – used as sleeping aids, relaxants and to ease anxiety – reportedly found in the suite as well.

After the hairdresser screamed, one of Whitney’s bodyguards came into the bathroom and dragged her from the tub before attempting to revive her.

Unfortunately nothing could be done and the mother-of-one was pronounced dead at 3.55pm and her body was finally removed from the hotel yesterday morning (12.02.12).

There are a whole host of rumours flying around about a two day drink ad drug binge but nothing has been confirmed as yet. We do know she did an impromptu performance with her friend Kelly Price two day prior to her death. Which, as it turns out, was her last ever performance.

Following her untimely passing, Whitney’s family issued a statement saying: “This is an unimaginable tragedy and we will miss her terribly.”
