The full autopsy report has been released for Whitney Houston, and disturbing details are revealed in the forty-two page document, including there was a white substance found in the bathroom on a spoon, and that Whitney had a perforation in her posterior nasal septum, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The report states that the last person to see Houston alive was her assistant, who told the singer to take a bath to get ready for Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammys party. The assistant went to Neiman Marcus to run an errand and when she got back, the report states, “she went into the bathroom and found the decedent lying face down in the bathtub, unresponsive, with the top of her head facing west. The bathtub was filled with water and there was water on the bathroom floor, however, the water was not running. She called out to the bodyguard and they pulled the decedent out of the bathtub. The assistant then called downstairs telling them to call 911.”
The Coroners’ report notes “there are no signs of foul play.”
Various prescription pill bottles were found in the living room and bedroom of the hotel suite but the bathroom was where the cocaine was found. “Located on the south portion of the counter was a small spoon with a white crystal substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper, along with other miscellaneous items. Located in the top drawer in the north side of the counter were remnants of a white powdery substance and a portable mirror on a base. On the bottom of that base were more remnants of a white powdery substance.”
A rape kit was used to collect physical evidence from Whitney’s body. “On Sunday, 2/12/2012, Criminalist Mark Schurchardt used a sexual assault kit on the decedent at the scene…The Criminalist later booked the pubic hair kit, the fingernail clippings, the hair standards and the sexual assault kit at the Forensic Services Center as evidence.”
“Whitney’s eyes were congested and there was a bloody purge coming from her nose. There were 2 superficial abrasions to the left side of her forehead and there was a superficial abrasion to the left side of the bridge of her nose.” There were minor abrasions noted on her left arm, left hand and right shoulder.
Houston had a 60 percent narrowing of her right coronary artery, mild emphysema, pulmonary edema, scald burn of the sacrum, superficial incision of the upper lip, abrasion of the right lower leg, perforation of the posterior nasal septum, and resuscitative abrasions of anterior chest.
During Whitney’s formal autopsy, the report says, “tattoos are not present. Rigor mortis is present in the limbs and jaw….The head is normocephalic and is covered by black hair. A brown wig is tightly attached to the hair. This is removed and placed in a paper bag to accompany the body. There is no balding and the hair can be described as wavy.” There was no genital or anal trauma detected.
Whitney’s upper teeth “have been replaced with a full arch maxillary dental prosthesis supported by dental implants. There are natural lower teeth present.” Whitney had “400 grams of watery fluid with portions of food material in her stomach.”
The coroner noted that “there is a small amount of subcutaneous hemorrhage in the region of the left forehead the hemorrhage does not extend into the orbits or the temporal muscles.”
The final autopsy asserts that toxicology testing “showed cocaine, benzoylecgonice, cocaethylene, marijuana, Xanax, Flexiril, and Benadryl…Death was due to drowning due to effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use. No foul play is suspected. The mode of death is accident.”
