Whitney Houston cause of death
Whitney Houston was 48 years old at the time of her death.

On March 22, 2012, the Los Angeles County coroner's office reported the cause of Houston's death was drowning and the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" In addition, the office stated the amount of cocaine found in Houston's body indicates she used the substance shortly before her death. Toxicology results also revealed additional drugs in her system: Benadryl, Xanax, marijuana and Flexiril. The manner of death was listed as an "accident".

How the body was found
At Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, a female hairdresser went to check on Houston and found her lying in the bathtub. Houston's face was underwater.  Beverly Hills paramedics performed CPR for about 20 minutes before declaring her dead at 3:55pm. Authorities speculate that a combination of Xanax and alcohol could have fatally sedated Houston and she may have fallen asleep or lapsed into unconsciousness in the bathtub. But it is too early to tell the actual cause of death.  Police stated that there was no obvious sign of criminal intent, foul play, nor drugs.

I remember when Whitney

I remember when Whitney Houston made a grand entrance to the music scene.

I remember when she sang at Superbowl 1991. America was at war at that time and she sang The Star Spangled Banner with such a feeling. I remember her singing was so sensational. The record company had to rush out and cut the single CDs for sale. They sold millions of that single.

How about all the movies...

We thought she was becoming the biggest diva along with Barbara Streisand. Then things took nose-dive when she was with Bobby Brown. She became a reality star.

She was making a comeback... and she's gone. God bless Whitney.
