Cocaine Found in Whitney Houston's Bathroom

Wednesday, 04 Apr 2012 06:25 PM

 

LOS ANGELES, April 4 (Reuters) - White powder, later determined to be cocaine, was found in the Beverly Hills hotel bathroom where singer Whitney Houston drowned accidentally in a bathtub in February, according to the full coroner's report released on Wednesday.

Detectives also found a rolled up piece of paper, a small spoon and a mirror - all items used by cocaine users - in the bathroom shortly after Houston's naked body was found in the bathtub, the Los Angeles County Coroner's report said.

Houston, 48, who had a history of drug addiction, was found dead on Feb. 11. An autopsy in March determined she died of accidental drowning due to the effects of cocaine and heart disease.
