Whitney Houston drowned accidentally; cocaine in her system

Whitney Houston died as the result of drowning in what the Los Angeles County coroner has ruled as an accidental death. The coroner said heart disease and cocaine use were also factors in her death on Feb. 11. Cocaine was found in her system, the coroner said.  The ruling ends weeks of speculation over how the pop star died.

Authorities collected several bottles of prescription drugs from Houston’s suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was found dead. But officials have said the amounts of drugs did not seem unusually large.

Toxicology tests showed a cocktail of drugs in the pop star’s system. Traces of marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl were also found, but officials concluded that those drugs did not contribute to her death.

Houston was found in a bathtub at the hotel a day before the Grammy Awards.

The death certificate, released this month, states that the manner of death was “pending investigation.”
