Yesterday we reported the cause of Whitney Houston’s death was not clearly determined. However, the L.A. County Coroner’s office informed Houston’s family she did not die from drowning.
According to TMZ, Houston’s family was informed she died from a lethal combination of Xanax, other prescription drugs, and alcohol.
We’re told Coroner’s officials informed the family there was not enough water in Whitney’s lungs to lead to the conclusion that she drowned.
Our sources say the family was told Whitney may well have died before her head became submerged.
Since foul play is not suspected Houston’s mother Cissy can retrieve her daughter’s body, and ship it back to Atlanta; unless the LAPD says otherwise.
What a tragic end to a storied life.
