Los Angeles Coroner Ruled Drowning Accident Caused Whitney Houston’s Death

In a recent report released by the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office, it declared that Whitney Houston’s death was caused by a drowning accident.

According to the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office, although heart condition and cocaine use greatly contributed to Houston’s death, drowning accident played a major role in the singer’s untimely demise. According to initial investigation results released by the said office, Houston’s heart condition caused blockage in her arteries.

The Coroner’s Office, through their spokesperson, Craig Harvey, said that Houston’s death was described as an “accident” and no foul play or trauma has been found during the investigation.

According to the Coroner’s Office findings, other drugs like marijuana, anti-anxiety drug, muscle reluctant, and anti-allergy were found in Houston’s body. However, Harvey confirmed that said drugs were not a factor to the singer’s death.

Houston’s sister-in-law and manager, Patricia Houston, said in a news report that though they were glad since the case has been cleared, their family is saddened upon learning about the toxicology results.

Houston died at the age 48 in her hotel room on February 11, 2012, just a day before the annual pre-Grammy party. She was found submerged in the hotel bathtub filled with water.

LA Coroner County officials said that they will be releasing Houston’s full autopsy report in about a couple of weeks.

In some instances of drowning accidents, it’s either the victims themselves or their family whom may file for a claim through the help of Los Angeles lawyers. In Houston’s case, no other parties were involved or have caused the accident but the singer herself. Therefore, the case could be considered isolated or permanently closed since the drowning accident was not caused by other people’s negligence; and, most importantly, that the real reason for her untimely death has been uncovered.
