TMZ is investigating the death of Whitney Houston, and more and more details are starting to emerge. According to their sources, multiple pill bottles were found in her hotel room, but there weren’t many pills found.
Among the pills found at the scene were … ibuprofen (painkiller), Xanax (anti-depressant), Midol (for menstrual cramps), amoxicillin (for treating bacterial infections) … and more.
Here’s more from TMZ:
We’re told the amoxicillin was prescribed recently because Whitney had been suffering from a sore throat.
We’re told some of the pills were old … some issued in 2011 … but some of the bottles were from 2012. We’re told the bottles that were recovered at the scene did not contain a lot of pills.
Sources tell us … some of the prescriptions were filled at the infamous Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills … where Michael Jackson had numerous prescriptions filled for Demerol and other drugs.
Law enforcement sources tell us … it’s possible Whitney suffered a heart attack caused by an adverse reaction to her medication, but it is simply too early to make an official call on the cause of death.
We’re told the L.A. Coroner’s Office has removed the hold on Whitney’s body … which means her family can now have Whitney transported back to Atlanta, where the singer will be laid to rest.
It’s looking like Whitney did NOT drowned. Coroner’s have concluded that there wasn’t enough water in her lungs to lead to that conclusion. TMZ’s sources believe Whitney died from a mixture of Xanax and other prescription drugs – mixed with alcohol.
Update on Bobbi Kristina, Whitney’s daughter. Sadly, she’s been hospitalized twice since her mother died, and family members fear she’s suicidal.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her and Bobbi Brown. Unbelievably heartbreaking.
