Whitney's Cause Of Death Revealed

Whitney's toxicology reports are in. According to the coroner Whitney's death was accidental. The cause: "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use." The toxicology reports also found a plethora of other drugs in her system including marijuana and Xantax amongst them. 

The reports do suggest that the rumors of extensive alcohol usage in the last few days of her life are not true as her alcohol levels were very low. The coroner according to CNN's Don Lemon says that Whitney most likely had a heart attack from cocaine usage and then drowned.

Whitney's family has released a statement:

"We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure"

I was among so many fans praying and hoping that she had fully kicked the habit as her family so adamantly claimed, but you can never really know with a recovering  addict. I still love Whitney, she is still the most astounding voice of my time, and I still appreciate her legacy. My prayers go up for her family at this time.
