The legendary singer's autopsy was conducted on Sunday, and Beverly Hills Police Department detectives were present during the examination.

"There were no physical signs of trauma on Whitney's body. She weighed over 150 pounds, and there was food in her stomach. Upon closer inspection of her throat, it did look enflamed, but nothing out of the realm of normal,” a source close to the situation tells “Her heart wasn't enlarged which means she didn't have a pre-existing heart condition. Based on the condition of her body, and her coloring, Whitney might have been underwater for at least 30 minutes. Her face was blue/yellow when taken out of the bathtub where she was found.”
