Whitney Houston Final Autopsy Leaves Mother 'Devastated'

Whitney Houston’s final Los Angeles County Coroner’s autopsy report released on Wednesday offers an extensive account of what the iconic singer’s final moments were before her demise.

While the preliminary autopsy report obtained by TMZ suggested the “I Will Always Love You” singer died from an accidental drowning, heart disease, and cocaine use, the now-released 42-paged final report details how the latter two causes authored the accidental drowning.

A “small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper” in her Beverly Hilton hotel room was found by one of the detectives on the scene.

“Located in the top drawer, in the north side of the counter, were remnants of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base,” according to the report adding that “a plethora of prescription medication bottles, prescribed to the decedent, multiple blister packs and a loose tablet” was found in the hotel suite Whitney occupied.

The report also depicts a plastic bag ripped open with spilling pills, medication bottles, and an ashtray with full of cigarette butts.

The report further reads that the “Didn’t We Almost Had It All” singer had “perforation of posterior nasal septum” signaling an extended time of cocaine use. There was also mention of an “old needle puncture wound on Houston’s inner left elbow.”

Her body was discovered face down in the bathtub with a “bloody purge coming from her nose.”

These discoveries bring forth a different angle as to why Houston drowned: “Whitney possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications, and alcohol.”

The new released findings has Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, “devastated” and “inconsolable” having to accept that her only daughter was still suffering from a drug habit that gripped her life until the end.

The mother-of-three didn’t want this to be her daughter’s ending and regrets this may be how many will remember her legendary daughter. Instead, the once gospel singer would prefer others to remember “the voice” belting out notes as in her memorable 1991 National Anthem performance.

“This is the type of thing people should remember Whitney for.”

    YES! And she SHOULD be remembered as a drug abuser to be a warning for future up and coming talent than once you have it all you can still be lonely at the top. The list is endless – Joplin, Hendrix, Winehouse, Huston, it is not all party games. This career path can be deadly.

    When was Rosie divorced?

  10. Whitney was a PERSON, A HUMAN being FIRST, there fore she is completely fallible, prone to make mistakes, bad choices and find herself in unbelievable situations. If she was perfect God would have kept her for himself. She apparently had something to learn by being here. People act as if a person becomes famous that they owe something to you to behave a certain way,. While we would like for these entertainers to BE better people they are not obligated to be what YOU expect. YOU should be your child's role model. Your child should not need to look to anyone else for moral direction. If he/she does then YOUR parenting skills should be called into question. no some Entertainer's who only JOB is to ENTERTAIN not INSTRUCT.

  11. Just completely and utterly awful. I still have Whitney's first album and remember her as the stunning young girl gracing the cover. She had a great voice and The Bodyguard is one of my favourite soundtracks, she looked beautiful in that too. I'd like to remember her that way as I remember Michael Jackson as the good looking, talented young man of his Off the Wall era.

  12. She was a powerful singer, and had great beauty, but if we only remember these things about her, and ignore the way she died, then she will be forgotten as a bad role model and a very bad example to others. Her nose was almost perforated because of this habit. People need to stop being in denial each time a pop star dies so young…

    who the hell gets in the bath tub face down????? sounds like someone drowned her. and was able to because of the drugs…..smh.

  14. Meredith Paige says:

    For a news article, this has a lot of typos, which bother me. "Didn't We Almost 'HAD' It All"? It almost sounds like the author isn't a native English speaker. Whoever edits these articles needs to work a lot harder.

  15. Tara Ziehl Patenaude says:

    I'm sorry but I have NO sympathy for this woman and cannot figure out why the hell people are acting like this was some great tragedy and putting her on a pedestal, when she did drugs until they consumed her and it killed her, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, especially those closest to her unless they had their heads in the sand! Sucks for her family but I don't think she should be treated like she was some saint and given all these accolades- ya she had a beautiful voice until she destroyed her gift.

  16. Bobcat Booth says:

    she was nothing more than a crak whore who made out of the ghettos.

  17. Sherry Johnson-burkhalter says:

    THE WORLD LOST AN ANGEL A WONDERFUL WOMAN AND MOTHER WHO HAD PROBLEMS THE WRONG SHE'S DONE WILL NEVER ERASE THE BEAUTY SHE LEFT BEHIND, ONLY THOSE WITH EVIL HEART JUDGE HER DARK SIDE, RIP WHITNEY THE WORLD IS SILENT FROM YOUR BEAUTIFUL VOICE, YOUR LIFE SHOULD HAVE BEEN HIDDEN FROM THE JUDGMENT OF THE COLD HATEFUL HEARTED PEOPLE WHO ONLY AMUSE THEMSELVES BY REPEATEDLY SLAYING OTHERS.

  18. Eric Anderson says:

    Wonderful mother? Are you serious?
    She chose drugs over her kids. Period.

  19. Eric Anderson says:

    No. She had a good upbringing. She didn't come from the ghetto. She had everything going for her, and CHOSE to destroy her life.

    Hood rats at least have some excuse. Houston had none.

  20. Eric Anderson says:

    She should be remember for how she died, and what she did to herself leading up to it. It should be shouted from the rooftops. The autopsy photos should be blow up poster size and plastered all over every junior high and high school in the country.

  21. Sherry Johnson-burkhalter says:

    ONLY THE RIGHTEOUS WILL JUDGE

  22. Bob Sherrill says:

    No one loved her enough to say STOP. That is sad.

  26. Jan Caine says:

    Just another case to point out "common sense is not common" I wish the masses would learn to deal with"truth".
    God gave Whitney a marvelous gift, she chose to mess her life up, so why not call a spade a spade. I resent her Mother snubbing Clive Davis since he was the one who promoted her heavily.Cissy needs to be humble and appreciative AND learn to deal with reality.
