Here is the Official Coroner's Document
People before some of you go jumping off of bridges please understand that DRUG INTAKE ON THE NIGHT OF HER DEATH DID NOT KILL WHITNEY HOUSTON.
Heart Disease and Use of Drugs over years took her. Whitney was dying and did not know it. Yes she had prescription drugs and weed in her system the report says those drugs DID NOT KILL HER.
Please spread this news because the media is already spinning this in a horrible way.
Thank you for posting the coroner's report.
So it would appear that she had a heart attack and drowned. She had cocaine in her system, which had some effect, but I guess we won't know how much until the final report which should indicate quantities. Interesting to note that there was apparently no alcohol in her system. So much for all the news reports about her smelling of alcohol and being drunk and boozing the night before and the morning of. Also interesting that such a young person had heart disease, though cigarettes can be a huge contributing factor in heart disease.
I think the coroner knew all along she drowned, he was just waiting for toxicology so he could say what caused her to lose consciousness such that she would drown. That's why he kept trying to get them to back off the prescription drug thing.
All in all, it's sad to see that cocaine was in her system and she had not conquered her challenges as I had hoped and thought. Sad also that refrain in the media will be that cocaine caused her death, especially since it would appear that years of cigarette smoking which contribute to an often silent heart disease were the real culprits.
She was human, like the rest of us.
