Contrary to prior reports that someone in her entourage had cleaned up her hotel room before paramedics and authorities arrived, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office report states that drugs were in fact found at the scene.
The scene description in the report illustrates Whitney’s room as a mess of drugs — including a spoon with crystals found on it, along with a white powdery substance, a rolled up piece of paper, a plastic bag ripped open with pills spilling out, medication bottles and an ashtray with cigarette butts all over the place.
Whitney’s immediate cause of death is listed as drowning, but it’s also noted that her cocaine intake and substance abuse both current and past are attributing factors.
When the 48-year-old I Will Always Love You singer’s official cause of death was released in March it mentioned her heart disease, but the new detailed report also says she had a hole in her nasal septum from all the years of cocaine abuse and mild emphysema.
