FROM THE CORONER: WHITNEY HOUSTON Said To Have Died Of Accidental Drowning!

Filed under : Entertainment

The County of Los Angeles Coroner’s office has ruled that the final cause of Whitney Houston‘s death was accidental drowning, but also noted that cocaine use and heart disease were contributing factors.

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

The official cause of death for Whitney Houston is drowning and “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use,” according to a report released Thursday by the L.A. County Department of the Coroner.

The report indicates that Whitney died when she was submerged in a bathtub filled with water, and also indicates that she had ingested cocaine.

Her death has been ruled as accidental.

The final coroner’s report is expected to be released within two weeks.

Whitney Houston was found under water in the bathtub on February 11th, 2012 in her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite one day before the Grammy Awards.

She was laid to rest in Westfield, New Jersey, on Feb. 19th, 2012.
