Whitney Houston: What Caused Her Death?

    February 13, 2012

As many of you may have heard, Whitney Houston was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room on Saturday afternoon. After being found unconscious by a member of her entourage, hotel security contacted 911. Paramedics arrived and administered CPR but were unable to revive her. She was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

Autopsy reports of Houston’s body reveal that there was a certain amount of water in her lungs at the time of examination. This suggests there is a possibility she may have drowned. Other reports say she was drinking heavily the evening before her death and that she may also have been taking Xanax to relieve anxiety or depression. A combination of these drugs could have rendered her unconscious. So drowning has not been ruled out as a cause of death.

According to a source, Bobbi Kristina, Whitney’s daughter also suffered a similar incident the night before the pop singers death. Bobbi was checked into the same Beverly Hills hotel under Whitney’s name when she fell asleep in the bathtub causing friends to call security to have the door opened. This seems like a very strange coincidence. Hospitalized on two different occasions since her mothers death, people close to Bobbie fear she may be suicidal.

Whitney’s family was initially told by the LA County Coroner that she died of a drug interaction between Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol. According to her mother, who spoke with her about a half an hour before she was found dead, everything seemed normal with Houston.

It sounds like there is some serious doubt about what exactly caused Whitney Houston’s death, hopefully we will have more answers as toxicology reports begin to flow in. As with any celebrity death, there is always a lot of hype. We will have to wait and see what facts come out.
