Corner’s officials in Los Angeles have determined that Grammy Award-winning singer Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning. Heart disease and chronic cocaine use were also factors in her death.

Houston, 48, was found dead in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11. Her death has been ruled accidental.

Although there were many prescription medicine bottles in her room, they were in normal quantities. Police also found no evidence of foul play.

Cocaine was found in her system in addition to marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl. She also had heart disease that caused her arteries to be blocked.

Houston’s funeral service was held on February 18 and she was buried in a New Jersey cemetery next to her father.

The complete autopsy report is expected in two weeks.
