A preliminary coroner’s report was released yesterday regarding the autopsy of Whitney Houston and the results were released by TMZ. I am pretty much a kool-aid drinker when it comes to TMZ. Their reports have a very high rate of accuracy. What bothers me is that I cant’ find a copy of the actual report online. It seems that every major news outlet is using the TMZ article as the basis for their reporting. Where is the report? The ABC video above has a copy of the report and video of the coroner’s office official statement. It’s the closest to the original source as is available at this time.
Here is a statement of Craig Harvey the spokesman for the coroner’s office, “We had approximately a 60 percent occlusion in the arteries — in the narrowing of the arteries, so that condition complicated by the chronic cocaine use all combined to result in her drowning. The final cause of death has been established as drowning due to atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use. Other drugs were identified in toxicology; However, their levels were at either a therapeutic or sub-therapeutic level, therefore, they are not believed to be contributory to the death.“
Another interesting thing to note is that the video shows the official report stating under the category How Injury Occurred that Whitney was “found submerged in bathtub filled with water; cocaine intake.” We’ve heard so much about where Whitney was when the paramedics came. Supposedly she had been moved onto the floor and the body guard attempted CPR. So when the report says that she was found in the bathtub is that based on the word of the first person on the scene or was she still in the bathtub?
Another one of the cousins weighs in on his vast understanding of Whitney’s personal finances saying that she had off shore accounts. Then we go to commercial and when we come back yet another cousin appears and says he thinks Whitney was murdered. Suddenly, Leolah is saying that Whitney did not get in hotel bathtubs. This is just comical. Leolah goes back to talking about how Ray J was Whitney’s “runner boy” for drugs and that they never hung out. Really? Has she not seen all the pictures?
Meanwhile today a spokesman for Ray J tells TMZ that he had no idea she had returned to drug use. Which is of course as crazy as Leolah’s statements.
It seems every time someone dies the bottom feeders come out. It’s just sickening. I don’ know what is worse, these people being willing to come on TV and disrespect everyone around Whitney or Dr. Drew for letting them.
