HOLLYWOOD—New details have emerged in the death of songstress Whitney Houston who died on Saturday, February 11. An autopsy on the singer has been completed, but the contents are on a security hold as it’s a high-profile celebrity case, similar to that of Michael Jackson back in 2009. 


The Beverly Hills Police Department held a news conference on Monday, February 13.  Lieutenant Mark Rosen indicated that Houston was pulled from her bath tub from her room at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.  She was unconscious and unresponsive when first respondents arrived on the scene.  “First aid and CPR measures were performed in an attempt to revive her, they were unsuccessful and at approximately 3:55pm on Saturday, Whitney Houston was pronounced dead at The Beverly Hilton Hotel,” said Lt. Rosen.

“As of right now, this is an active investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department it’s what we deem to be a death investigation.  It’s not prompted by her celebrity or notoriety we would do this in the case of any attendant or unexpected death of any one her age.  As of right now it’s not a criminal investigation, we have concluded our portion of the investigation at the hotel.  We have a team of investigators specifically assigned to this case, but as of right now at this date it’s a coroner’s case,” added Lt. Rosen.  He further added that authorities are “not conducting a homicide investigation at this time, we are conducting a death investigation.” 


The LA County Coroner’s Office completed the autopsy on Sunday, February 12, but toxicology reports are not expected to be completed until several weeks where an actual cause of death will be determined.


Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was rushed to Cedars Sinai on Saturday after hearing of her mother’s passing. It was reported that she suffered from a panic attack and anxiety, and is now recovering. Bobby Brown, Houston’s ex-husband canceled his current tour and arrived in LA on Sunday night to be with his daughter.  


Lt. Rosen further stated at the press conference, “We do not know the cause of death, we don’t know the circumstances leading up to her death and as of right now it’s a normal investigation of someone her age who would have died in this manner.”   According to reports, Houston’s body is being flown back to New Jersey were funeral arrangements are expected to take place later this week.
