The prescription drugs were officially taken into custody by the Beverly Hills Police Department, who is handling the investigation, and an autopsy is scheduled to take place either Sunday or Monday.

"Investigators from BHPD will be there when the autopsy is done. This is routinely done in cases when someone relatively young dies and there are no signs of foul play," the insider tells us.

Authorities have unofficially ruled out suicide and are currently looking at Houston's death as an accidental overdose.

Houston battled an addiction to drugs and alcohol for years and she had just wrapped filming Sparkle with Jordin Sparks.
