Sources close to the family have reported that the LA coroners office has released more information concerning Whitney Houston‘s cause of death. Although the seemingly earlier details were a bit sketchy, new information revealed that the multi-platinum singer did not die from drowning. Earlier reports indicated that Houston may have ingested a lethal cocktail of prescription drug,  Xanax, other prescription drugs with alcohol. Other reports claim that Whitney had alcohol in her system from the night before, and mixed with the Xanax, caused her untimely death. However, the coroner has told the family that there was not enough water in her lungs to cause drowning. No illegal drugs were found in Whitney’s hotel room, and no foul play is suspected. The evidence is beginning to show that Whitney suffered death before her head was submerged under water.

Despite numerous reports, it was actually Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones, who found Whitney’s lifeless body in the bathtub. Sources say that Mary laid Whitney’s attire out on the bed that she was to wear that evening, then left the room for roughly a half hour. When Mary came back in to the room, and Whitney had not come out of the bathroom or responded to her, she went in and that’s when Whitney was found submerged under water in the hotel’s bathtub. She was staying on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton — where the Grammy pre-show gala was going to be downstairs.

Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston is making plans to have Whitney’s body flown to Atlanta, and the funeral will be in Whitney’s hometown of New Jersey.
