Houston is last seen alive by her personal assistant at 3pm.. At 3:43 pm a 911 call by a security officer of the Beverly Hilton informs police that a woman is facedown in the tub. Houston has drowned in the bathtub. A small spoon with a white crystal like substance in it and a rolled-up piece of white paper are found in the bathroom where Houston died. Such items are used to snort cocaine. Houston’s sister in law, Pat Houston stated that she was concerned with Houston’s behavior two nights before but she didn’t think Houston was abusing drugs in her final days. Police later discovered that Houston had signs of drug use in her body. Police:
There were no obvious signs of any criminal intent at this time. To me, a sudden drop-off in the Xanax level, a drop-off in your alcohol consumption, add cocaine, that’s a recipe for a seizure. Somebody who’s now upside down in a bathtub could easily seize and drown.
Houston is survived by her daughter Bobbi Kristina by ex husband Bobby Brown.
