Whitney Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55
p.m. on Saturday, February 11, 2012
She was found unresponsive in room 434 of the Beverly Hilton
Whitney had been seen drinking heavily at a party the night
before It is also known that she was
Her last meal was reportedly a hamburger, fries
and a turkey sangritch.
According to TMZ, Whitney took a
bath, and after an hour she hadn't emerged from the bathroom. An assistant
entered the room and found Whitney submerged in the tub. The gravy boat
apparently contained olive oil, part of Whitney's beauty regimen.
The hotel became more of a zoo, reporters
converging. Brian Donnelly was on the scene and snapped these snaps as
they crews gathered.
Whitney's body was removed from the hotel and
taken downtown for an autopsy. TMZ/Splash got this amazing photograph.
By Monday, the work was complete and her family
was making arrangements to have Whitney's body picked up for whatever memorial
they are planning.
Whitney's official website put this wonderful
image on the homepage.
On Wednesday, April 4, 2012, the
autopsy report was released. I'll spare you the techy stuff - here is the most
She checked in to the Hilton on
Monday, Feb. 6. She had a sore throat for a few days.
On Saturday around 1 p.m. her
assistant left to go shopping, told Nippy to take a bath and prepare for the big
party that night. Returning an hour later, she found Nippy face-down in
the bathtub. Whitney was submerged for an hour in 93.5 degree water.
Girl was scalded. Bad.
Assistant and Nippy's bodyguard
got her out of the tub and called 911.
In the room: a chair and
a computer tower with a Fedora on top of it. A dresser with a mini
bar. An open bottle of champagne. TONS of prescription bottles, old
and new (filled at Rite-Aid, Walgreens and Mickey Fine in Beverly Hills),
a beer on the nightstand and an ashtray filled with butts.
On the countertop were remnants
of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base. Mmhm.
When detectives arrived, she
was covered with a white linen sheet. The floor was soaked with water and
the tub had about 12" of water in it.
Whitney was bejeweled - on her
right writs was a bracelet made up of a band of numerous white stones, and
attached to the band was a cross made up of similar small white stones. A
ring worn on the fourth digit of the right hand had a large white stone,
possibly tinged yellow, with small with stones along the band. Each
earlobe appeared to be pierced twice.
Kitchen detail: She wore
a weave of short length dark brown hair or fibers and some highlighting.
The front margin of the weave was in a position slightly back from the front
hairline, revealing the woman's natural head hair beneath it. Her natural
hair was short, dark brown and kinky. Wig was snatched off her head and put in a
brown bag and accompanied Nippy downtown to the Coroner.
The next day, Findadeath friend Alicia Ross found time today
to take a snap of the mini-shrine at the front gates of Whitney's home in Mendham, NJ.
By Saturday night, the trendy night-club
Thank you, Alicia!
Her uncompleted death certificate was released,
with no official cause of death noted. It will probably take weeks for the

Drowning combined with the effects of
atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.
Coke and water. Done.
Thanks, Paul Blum
The Grammy ceremony on the following evening was a Whitney
suck-fest. I'm all for a good tear-jerking tribute, I am, but I
actually became bored to death of her death. People who never met Whitney
were called upon to comment on her demise. "I never met her, but I
always heard good things about her." psh.
In the meantime, Whitney was taken downtown to
the LA County Coroner for autopsy. Her body was released and flown on a
private jet (Courtesy of Tyler Perry) to the East Coast.
Her funeral was held at the New Hope
Baptist Church in Newark.
Thank you, Audrey in Arkieland!
For the time being, you can watch the entire
funeral until somebody figures out how to make money out of it.
Her funeral was a huge media event which I
soon be released on dvd for your enjoyment. A lot of Whitney's personal
items are going up for auction soon, and the family has emptied the hotel room
of EVERYTHING... sheets, garbage can, towels... so no one else can profit from
Someone made a bundle selling a casket
photograph of Whitney, which was published by the National Enquirer. Thank
you Cayley for sending it in.
Whitney's body was taken
by hearse (thanks, Drie!) to be buried in Fairview
Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey
Whitney was a grown woman who made her own
choices. Much like with Anna Nicole, the people behind Being Bobby
Brown took her on a very public ride to "doody-bubble
land". I think Brown will have a lot to answer for, karmically.
Interesting placement of the Walking Dead ad on
